On September 8, Indianapolis, Indiana radio station WRZX 103.3 FM conducted an interview with STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis at the Indianapolis stop of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. You can now watch the chat below.
STAIND issued a new concert DVD and Blu-ray, titled “Live From Mohegan Sun”, last month. The concert was recorded and filmed in high definition at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Montville, Connecticut on November 25, 2011, during STAIND‘s initial bout of touring for its self-titled seventh album.
Lewis recently said that STAIND will go on hiatus after finishing its upcoming touring commitments, but insisted that the group is not breaking up.
Lewis plans to spend time promoting the release of his first full-length solo album, “The Road”, which comes out on September 11.
The disc follows up his 2011 EP “Town Line”, which reinvented Lewis as a country music performer when not with STAIND.
STAIND had a difficult time making its latest record, with the band in turmoil and the sessions eventually leading to a split with founding drummer Jon Wysocki.
The new album debuted at No. 5 on the Billboard album chart and marked the end of the group’s deal with Atlantic Records.
Lewis said the band would explore its options during the hiatus, adding that it would take “a ridiculous, ridiculous check for me to be willing to sign a label deal again.”
