STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok has told Western Mass News that the band is working on a new album, which he said should be released sometime next year.

In a separate interview with Atlantic City WeeklyMushok said that both he and STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis will continue to pursue other projects — Mushok with SAINT ASONIA, the band he co-founded in 2015 with former THREE DAYS GRACE singer Adam Gontier, and Lewis with his country solo career — alongside their long-running outfit.

STAIND has just kicked off a short U.S. tour.

In the summer of 2021, STAIND completed a U.S. run of dates as the support act for KORN.

In June 2021, Mushok told Anne Erickson of Audio Ink Radio that he and his bandmates were working on their first studio album since 2011’s self-titled effort. “There’s a bunch of [new] songs kicking around,” he said. “It’s just kind of [a matter of] sorting through that stuff and seeing what, if anything, we like, and figuring out… I imagine, having not put out a real record of new music in 10 years, we’re gonna be pretty critical of what it is and wanna make sure that it’s great. But, yes, there is talk of that. We actually signed a record deal and have a deal to do a new record.”

In March 2021, Lewis told SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk” that he “would certainly love to” have the new STAIND album released in the not-too-distant future. “All of our plans that were kind of semi on the books and on the table, everything just had a year taken off of it [due to the pandemic],” he said at the time. “We were gonna have a record come out sometime in 2020 or certainly in 2021, and there was a schedule that was on the table that, just like everything else, got burned to the ground as soon as [the lockdown] started.”

STAIND released its first album in nine years, “Live: It’s Been Awhile”, in May 2021 via Yap’em/Alchemy Recordings. The “Live: It’s Been Awhile” album was accompanied by “The Return Of Staind”, a two-part global streaming series in partnership with Danny Wimmer Presents. The series launched with STAIND‘s “Live: It’s Been Awhile (From Foxwoods)” concert, which streamed globally on May 1, 2021. The “Live: It’s Been Awhile” album and concert were recorded at the band’s comeback show at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut in October 2019. The never-before-seen concert celebrated the band’s reunion after a five-year hiatus. STAIND also performed its iconic multi-platinum 2001 album “Break The Cycle” in its entirety for a May 8, 2021 streaming event, exactly 20 years after the album’s release. The “20th Anniversary Of Break The Cycle, Performed In Its Entirety” took place at Mill 1 in Open Square in Holyoke, Massachusetts, bringing the band back to their Western Mass roots.

STAIND played its first full live show in five years in September 2019 at the Louder Than Life music festival in Louisville, Kentucky.
