"Hydrograd", the new album from the breakthrough rock act Stone Sour, rocketed onto the charts this week, debuting at #1 on three Billboard charts: “Top Current Albums,” “Top Rock Albums,” and “Top Hard Rock Albums.” The album also debuted at #8 on the “Billboard 200,” marking the band’s fifth consecutive Top 10 debut on that chart. Furthermore, it debuted at #5 in the U.K. (the band's highest debut ever in that country), #2 in Australia (highest debut ever), and was Top 5 in Germany, Japan, and Switzerland.
Frontman Corey Taylor commented on the arrival of "Hydrograd" stating, “We're blown away by the reception of the album, especially balancing albums sold with our surge in streams. We poured our hearts into this - the proof is in the pudding, so to speak. The response tells us two things: people love the songs, and rock is far from dead. Our thanks to all the fans and keep spreading the word! We'll see you all soon!”
Also this week, the lead single “Song #3” spends a fourth straight week at #1 at Active Rock Radio, marking the GRAMMY® nominated band’s fourth #1 single and eighth Top 5 single at the format. “Song #3” is joined by a Ryan Valdez directed official video, which has received over 3 Million views on the band’s official YouTube channel while garnering 4.7 Million streams on Spotify, including placement on Rock This and Rock Hard playlists.
