Staind To Release New Live Album “Live: It’s Been Awhile” In May, Announce Two-Part Streaming Concert Series

Staind will be releasing a new live album titled “Live: It’s Been Awhile” on May 7. The effort was recorded during an October 2019 show at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, CT. Footage of the set will also stream on May 1 as part of the band’s two-part virtual concert series “The Return Of Staind.” The second part of the series will feature a livestream concert in which the band will be performing “Break The Cycle“ in full at Mill 1 at Open Square in Holyoke, MA on May 8. Tickets can be found HERE.

Aaron Lewis said the following about the “Live: It’s Been Awhile” set:

“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.”

He also added the following about the “Break The Cycle” livestream:

“Our first show together in 1995 was at a now defunct bar called the Waterfront in Holyoke. We played mostly covers, because that’s what you had to do back then. Turns out The Waterfront is two miles from where we did this. Here we are, two miles down the road, 26 years later, celebrating the anniversary of the album that helped us break though 20 years ago and altered our lives forever.”
