Massachusetts rockers STAIND are filming a video today (Friday, July 29) for “Not Again”, the first single from the band’s upcoming self-titled seventh album.
The new disc is STAIND‘s first studio effort in three years, but singer Aaron Lewis told The Pulse Of Radio that it wasn’t an easy record to make. “I’m usually pretty good about, you know, not wearing my stress on my sleeve at all, and this was a very stressful record,” he said. “We videotaped the entire thing, like everything, and we really, we captured all of it. And you’ll be able to see for yourself as to how stress manifests itself in the creative process.”
This is the first STAIND album done without founding drummer Jon Wysocki, who exited in May. STAIND recently enlisted EVANESCENCE drummer Will Hunt to fill in on some festival shows but has yet to announce a permanent new drummer.
STAIND will perform a handful of shows in September, including Southern California’s Epicenter festival on September 24, with full tour plans yet to be announced.
