He said the following:

“We haven’t broken up. I have no interest or creative need to go there right now. I’m pretty focused on [country music] and I’m not going anywhere. This is what feels right at this point in my life. Do I think there’s room somewhere down the road for Staind to play shows in the summertime, radio festivals and stuff like that? Sure. Do I think I have another one of those [Staind] records in me? Of course I do. All I have to do is live.”

Mike Mushok On Staind’s Future: “There’s No Real Plan For [Anything] Right Now”

Mike Mushok was recently interviewed by Mitch Lafon and was asked about the future of Staind. According to Mushok, the band still doesn’t have any plans for the foreseeable future. This isn’t too surprising though, considering Aaron Lewis solo country venture and Mushok’s dedication to Saint Asonia.

Mushok said the following:

“I remember in ’09, we stopped touring, and we did a record after that. We did the self-titled ‘Staind‘ record, which we did a little touring on. It was one of my favorite Staind records we had done. Aaron, I know, has another country record coming out in September. So, you know… we say we’re gonna do something else, but there’s no real plan for it right now. I know he’s pursuing that. And I know we’re [Saint Asonia] writing another record.”

He also added the following when asked if it was frustrating to to go on hiatus due to Lewis’ country career:

“Honestly, it was was a little frustrating, you know what I mean? But, listen… And people come to me, ‘Don’t you get mad? Aren’t you angry…?’ And I’m, like, ‘Well, I can’t be. He has to be happy with what he wants to do.’ And if Aaron‘s not happy… No matter what I do, when I go to Aaron, I can’t go ‘Dude, we have all these offers. We’ve gotta play these shows.’ I can’t make him. And if I did make him, he’d resent me. And it wouldn’t be fun, and it wouldn’t be what they’re supposed to be.

So when the day comes that he decides, ‘Hey, man, let’s do this again,’ either I’ll be ready or I won’t. It’s either, ‘No, man, I’m doing this thing [Saint Asonia] now, because you had your thing,’ or we’ll be on a break, or whatever it is, and I’ll say, ‘Okay, we can do it.’ So I’m really just kind of playing it as it goes.”

According to Blabbermouth, Staind vocalist, Aaron Lewis cursed out fans who were reportedly “molesting” a teenage girl who was crowd surfing during their set at Rockfest, yesterday (May 31). The band was playing their song, “Something To Remind You,” when Lewis stopped the concert to call out the guys who were harassing the girl.

He said the following:

“Alright, listen up, you fucking assholes. That fucking girl right there is, like, 15 fucking years old and you fucking pieces of shit are molesting her while she’s on the fucking crowd. Your fucking mothers should be ashamed of themselves, you pieces of shit. You should all be fucking beaten down by everyone around you for being fucking pieces of shit. If I fucking see that shit again, I swear to God, I will point you out in the crowd and have everyone around you beat your fucking ass.”
