"The Stone" is a song by American band ASHES dIVIDE and is their debut single from their debut album Keep Telling Myself It's Alright, which was released on April 8, 2008. The music video for the song was released in March.
"The Stone" is actually derived from a song done by Billy Howerdel during his time in A Perfect Circle. An instrumental named "Army" has many similarities with this song. It was done during demo sessions that yielded material from their first album, Mer de Noms. It apparently wasn't deemed a fit for A Perfect Circle music, so Billy re-worked it on his own for years until it appeared in this form.
The Stone garnered much attention from many U.S. rock radio stations and has been regularly played among the airwaves. It has also achieved recognizable success on the rock charts, peaking at #7 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and #10 on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart.
