It's got really great lyrics as well - the words in Bother really mean something - when I listen to Slipknot I can't always hear what you're trying to tell me - if that makes sense.
Corey: Yeah, totally. The stuff that I write for Slipknot is very specific, it's very much a part of my past and what I've had to do.
With Stone Sour the lyrics are more accessible, they reach out a little more to everybody and it's always been that way.
I write about the relationships between people and everything else and it's not just from my point of view, it could be from anybody's point of you. I think that comes through.
Who influences Stone Sour?
Josh: Probably Alice in Chains, Metallica, a lot of the thrash bands of the 80s and 90s, but we're influenced by everything now. That was the case back in the early days but now we listen to such different stuff.
Corey: We're not so much influenced by bands but genres - if you really look at it we experiment with everything.
Josh, this must be quite weird for you because you weren't as big before this - do you feel that this is an amazing opportunity for you?
Josh: This is my first band, so I'm kind of spoilt, I didn't have to suffer playing covers in a bar like Corey, my first crowd was a sell out.
What was your favourite cover then?
Corey: We used to play the Juicy Fruit theme song and we used to do the Jeffersons theme song - it was awesome.
We played four or five nights a week and bars loved us. Our name is an alcoholic drink - we went out for five years solid and busted it and here we are now, it paid off.
Do you think it makes you stronger - I interview a lot of bands that haven't been together long - formed in reality TV?
Corey: TV reality shows are evil, the music industry is evil!
We've all known each other so long that we can tell each other how we feel, get mad, get over it and move on. I think we've got a really good advantage over other bands.
Tell me about the video?
Corey: I had the concept for the video a long time ago and I sat down and we worked it out and it's basically about staring at your own mortality and accepting your fate and not giving up hope.
It's a reflection of what the song's about - being in a dark spot and never giving up.
This is your first UK tour as Stone Sour - Josh what do you think so far?
It's been awesome, it's been better than we could have expected.
The crowd's been great - we're getting used to it. Last night I went out without security and I got pinned against a bus!
What is the best thing about being a rockstar?
We're not rock stars - we don't have fits like a lot of people do - we're just ordinary guys with extraordinary jobs.
That's all there is to it. We don't go for all that ego stuff. If we didn't have a record contract we'd still be doing this in our basement, it's that simple.
What's the future for Stone Sour?
Corey: We're going to tour, release more singles and take advantage of it while we still can.
