The single, X-M@$, will be released on iTunes, and on December 12th to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust and was recorded at the Metropolis Studios in London during Stone Sour's recent UK tour.

"It's actually a song that I wrote four years ago just for a laugh, but when I played it for all of my friends they were like, 'This is fucking brilliant'. For some reason my manager forgot that I'd written it, but then a few months ago he found the song and immediately went, 'We gotta release this in time for this Christmas'!"

Corey Taylor told Kerrang! Magazine in a recent interview, before adding, "Personally, I love the holidays, but they seem to bring on severe stress in most people. So, I wrote this in honor of crotchety, drunken bastards who don’t know the difference between a yuletide and a toolshed. Plus, I think it's funny. I bet the U.K. will too. They're some of my favorite people in the world."
