Meanwhile Stone Sour and Slipknot guitarist Jim Root will sit out Stone Sour’s upcoming tour with Pop Evil and Stolen Babies in order to focus on the songwriting process for Slipknot's long-awaited next studio album. Stone Sour says in a statement: "Everyone involved is okay with the decision and our mutual friend Christian Martucci will be filling in on guitar. It was a difficult decision, but as the fans have wanted another Stone Sour tour and Jim had responsibilities to the writing process with Slipknot, we feel this is the best decision where everyone wins."
