Dark Horse Announces House of Gold & Bones by Corey Taylor

The Slipknot and Stone Sour singer will pen a four-issue limited series starting in April!



Source: Press Release

Gerard Way and Cluadio Sanchez have some company.  Corey Taylor, singer for such bands as Slipknot and Stone Sour is joining the rock star/comic book writer club with House of Gold & Bones, a four-issue limited series starting in April.  Details are sparse at this point, but going by the press release below, it appears that House of Gold & Bones will be a transmedia experience, with the story being told across two albums, video, web content, and also the comic itself.  No word on whether or not Taylor will be wearing one of those crazy masks while typing up the script, but we kind of hope he will be.  Here's what The Horse has to say about it:

 

COREY TAYLOR TO PEN

HOUSE OF GOLD & BONES COMIC!

A multimedia presence includes two upcoming Stone Sour albums and more!

 

 

October 10, NEW YORK, NY—Grammy-nominated musician and best-selling author Corey Taylor, the lyricist and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, is setting down the microphone and putting ink and images to paper in his new project with Dark Horse Comics—House of Gold & Bones

 

With stunning covers from Jason Shawn Alexander (Empty Zone, Abe Sapien), this limited four-issue series marks Corey Taylor’s debut in the comics genre. “I’ve been a die-hard fan of comics, on every level, my entire life,” says Taylor. “This has been a dream of mine for years now, and this project was tailor made for a comic, no pun intended. I couldn’t have picked a better company than Dark Horse to make this a reality. I have loved several of their titles for many years, going back to ’92. If we can get this crazy world out of my head and onto the canvas, it’ll be the best thing I’ve ever attempted. And with Dark Horse, I have every confidence that’s exactly what we’ll do.” 

 

House of Gold & Bones is a unique multimedia experience which includes two Stone Sour albums via Roadrunner Records (release date for Part 1 is October 22, with Part 2 following in 2013), videos, online presence, creative album packaging, live shows, and now the Dark Horse Comics series. Each element will follow and expand on the story. Taylor, already an internationally best-selling author, courtesy of last year’s Seven Deadly Sins, wrote the story—as well as the lyrics for the twenty-three tracks that make up the two albums—as a linear story line. The Stone Sour songs set the tone and follow the action, with Taylor’s House of Gold & Bones comic expanding on the story. 

 

Corey Taylor will be signing in the Dark Horse Booth at New York Comic Con Saturday, October 12 at 3 p.m.

Stone Sour’s House of Gold & Bones Part 1 album is on sale October 22, 2012!

House of Gold & Bones issue #1 is on sale April 17, 2013!
