Staind will release their first album in nine years on May 7th. The project is called Live: It’s Been Awhile, and it was recorded at the band’s comeback show at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT in October 2019.
The Live: It’s Been Awhile album will be accompanied by The Return Of Staind: A Two Part Global Streaming Series. The series launches with Staind’s Live: It’s Been Awhile (From Foxwoods) concert, which streams globally on May 1st. The concert was also recorded at Foxwoods Resort Casino in 2019. The never-before-seen concert celebrates the band’s reunion after a five-year hiatus.
Staind's lead singer Aaron Lewis said, “These were the first grouping of shows we played together in 2019, when we were gearing up for what was to be a very busy 2020 . . . that never happened. I’m glad we captured that energy here and can share it with those who couldn’t be at Foxwoods.”
