Staind's seventh studio, self-titled album (released today Sept. 13th) takes them back to their roots -- a place where their music could melt your face -- a long over due return. This album has the deep overdriven guitars and heavy lyrics that echo of 2000's 'Dysfunction' and 2001's 'Break the Cycle.'
Staind has made us realize a couple of things with their latest song 'Not Again': A) They still know how to kick ass. B) We miss music videos with big budgets. Check out their latest video where they basically play the song in front of a green screen.
Staind is set to release their heaviest disc of material since they burst onto the scene with 'Dysfunction' in 1999, but the arduous recording process cost them a drummer and almost the band. The cameras were rolling the entire time and a DVD of that footage comes with the deluxe edition of the album.
Ever wanted to be the lead guitarist for a big time rock band? Staind is giving you a chance to do just that. The band has initiated the 'Guitar Solo Showdown' -- whoever rocks the most kick ass guitar solo on their new single 'Not Again' will win a ton of cool stuff including $1000 to spend at Guitar Center and a spot on their upcoming seventh studio LP due September 13th.
For months now Staind has said that their upcoming album, recently re-named 'Staind', would act as a time machine for the band's sound; transporting it to their heavier nu-metal roots. As the lyric video for the first single 'Not Again' burns it's way on to the internet, it appears that the band was not exaggerating.
Staind's upcoming seventh studio album is said to be a return to the band's heavier roots. Many bands say "this is the heaviest thing we've ever done" (I'm looking at you Foo Fighters), but Staind may have actually delivered on that oft-broken promise with their new track 'Eyes Wide Open'.
Staind's upcoming release 'Seven' has been referred to by the band as their return to the heaviness of the 'Dysfunction' era. It will be interesting to see if the band makes good on that promise, I guess we'll find out in September.
Over the weekend at Rock on the Range 2011, the newest member of the Banana family; Anne Erickson had a chance to talk with Aaron Lewis and Mike Mushok of Staind. See them talk about their return to the 'Dysfunction' sound and concerns over the first performance for the band with a new drummer in this exclusive interview.
