Staind New Album Details
Produced by Johnny K – known for his work with 3 Doors Down, Disturbed, and Sevendust, not to mention his Grammy Award-nominated collaboration with Staind, 2008's "THE ILLUSION OF PROGRESS" – and mixed by the legendary Chris Lord-Alge, "STAIND" stands as Staind's most intense and powerful work to date. The album is heralded by the new song, "Eyes Wide Open," which premieres today at www.staind.com. "Not Again," the first official single from "STAIND," will then impact multi-format rock radio outlets nationwide in mid-July.
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Aaron Lewis recent described "STAIND" as "the heaviest thing we have recorded in a long time. It's definitely one of the heaviest collections of songs that we have put together."
"It's completely different than the last record," agrees guitarist Mike Mushok. "It's more of a throwback to where we came from. I definitely think it's fresh. It's a modern-sounding version of a heavy Staind record. It's pretty cool."
"STAIND" has already earned advance acclaim from ARTISTDirect, which hailed the album as a "timeless masterpiece," praising Lewis' vocals for "reach(ing) heights that only legends can touch."
In other news, Staind will perform at KROQ's annual rock festival, Epicenter 2011, slated for September 24th at Irvine, California's Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre.
