Stone Sour continues to build anticipation for its new album, Hydrograd, which is due out in early summer.
The group has posted a series of almost hieroglyphic Facebook messages that, upon inspection, seem to be song lyrics including "I can't recall the last time I was caught between the walls," "Those razors in the pillowcases seem to cue 'em all, but..." and "Old foes, dead things, take a toll. Remember it's just a game."
The posts also hashtag the album and Stone Sour's official web site, which has even more teasers about new music. The group is reportedly filming videos for some of the album's songs in Los Angeles and has posted photos from the sessions; Frontman Corey Taylor recently posted on Instagram that the album's first single is "coming soon."
Stone Sour returns to the road on May 18 at the Rock on the Range Kick-Off Party in Columbus, Ohio, and will be touring with Korn this summer in North America.
