Lead vocalist Corey Taylor recently suggested that while a single for "Part 2" would be the next release, there would still be more singles from "Part 1".
Corey Taylor gave a preview of what to expect from the song:
"It's quite aggressive, and actually the label asked me if I would go in and tame stuff down and I was like, 'No.' I'm not doing that," he said. "This is going out the way it is and I'm not gonna touch it up. I'm not gonna have people looking for a song that doesn't exist. This is the way it is on the album, that's the way it's going to be when we put it out to radio."
|“||"We're thinking about that". Once "Do Me a Favor" kinda does its thing, we'll probably go back to "Part 1" and find something there. It's a good problem to have, to be honest. There's so many great songs it's kinda hard to choose. We kinda can do whatever we want right now. Obviously with "Absolute Zero" going number one we were like, 'All right! That's really awesome!,' just one more stripe on our shoulder.||”|
Taylor recently told:
|“||Not next year but 2014 we are plotting and planning a world tour that is very special, where we do two nights in one place. We play "Part 1" top to bottom, the next night "Part 2" top to bottom involving a pretty elaborate stage thing that we’re cooking up now. And once we do that, we’re gonna film everything and try to put together a very comprehensive DVD set.||”|
The animated video for "Do Me a Favor" was directed by Phil Mucci and was released through their official YouTube channel on March 27. This video features comic book style imagery that is reminiscent of the movie Sin City. During this video we have flashes of colors, wild camera angles, an epic battle and a pretty blond. All of this is set to the delightful tune by Stone Sour.
Corey Taylor told about the video that it features all the characters from the story: Human, Allen, Black John, Numbers and Peckinpah.
