Stone Sour guitarist Josh Rand has revealed in a statement issued on Sunday (April 15th) that he sought treatment earlier this year for “an alcohol and Xanax dependency” which forced him to sit out the band’s last tour. Rand wrote, “I hit a personal breaking point and it was imperative that I address it.” He added, “I want to sincerely thank all of you for your thoughts, prayers, and positive words. It means a lot to me.” Rand last performed with Stone Sour on the ShipRocked cruise in mid-January before stepping away for what were at the time unspecified issues.
