Artist of the Week: Staind


Artist of the Week: Staind
Staind have made a solid start by steadily climbing Billboard Rock Song charts with their single 'Not Again' before releasing their self-titled album later.


Staind are on their way to dominate the U.S. charts. The rock band peaked at No. 4 on Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks and at No. 5 on Billboard Rock Songs, thanks to their latest single "Not Again" which is taken from their self-titled album "Staind".

Three years in the making, the eponymous album is produced by Johnny K who is known for his work with 3 Doors Down, Disturbed and Sevendust and for his contribution in Staind's critically-acclaimed album "Illusion of Progress". Also backed by legendary Chris Lord-Alge behind the mixing, the self-titled effort becomes Staind's most intense and powerful work to date.

The album is going to make its way out in the United States on September 13, and becomes their first release since their longtime drummer Jon Wysocki left and was replaced by Will Hunt. One of the songs "The Bottom" serves as a soundtrack for summer blockbuster "Transformers: Dark of the Moon".

Frontman Aaron Lewis gushed the album is "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." Guitarist Mike Mushok agrees, "It's completely different than the last record. 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."
