Come What(ever) May is the second studio album by American alternative metal band Stone Sour. It was recorded and produced by the band and Nick Raskulinecz at Studio 606 in Los Angeles, California, and was released on August 1, 2006, through Roadrunner Records. Writing for the album began as early as 2003 when vocalist Corey Taylor and guitarist James Root were writing material for their other band, Slipknot. In January 2006 Stone Sour began recording the follow-up to their 2002 debut album Stone Sour, during which time drummer Joel Ekman left the band due to family constraints. He was eventually replaced by ex-Soulfly drummer Roy Mayorga who played on all but two tracks on the album.
Following the release of the album, Stone Sour went on to promote it for over a year; releasing five singles and touring in several regions, including the United States, Canada, Japan and several countries in Europe. The album received generally positive reviews. It was praised for showing a progression in the bands song writing ability and musical style. It was also certified Gold in the United States and Canada and the single "30/30-150" was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 49th Grammy Awards. On June 26, 2007 Stone Sour released a special edition version of the album, it included six previously unreleased tracks and a bonus DVD which featured three music videos and a complete live performance of the band in Moscow. It remains their best-selling album to date, mostly due to the success of the single "Through Glass."
