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.”

“I had the show recorded at the time for the purpose of us to listen back to it and hold that moment in our hands and minds forever. I don’t think any of us had even thought about releasing a live record at that time. It wasn’t until our friend Josh Sobeck (one of our favorite live Sound Engineers) randomly sent me a mix of ‘Dumptruck’ he had put together that we imagined showing this moment to anyone else.

Thankfully he did, though! One listen to that track and it was clear as could be…the fans deserve to own this moment with us. So, cheers to you all, the REAL Masters Of Ceremony! This one goes out to the house that Fuckery built! See you all again one day, maybe?”

“Okay, so we pressed the wrong button and cancelled Easter. And we’re sorry about that. Let’s move on, yeah? Christmas is coming, and nothing says joy and surprise like The Darkness rocking live in your living room! Santa gets a day off as we deliver the Premier Cru streamed concert of the year live to you from the IndigO2 in London town. Let us in at your interweb window as we celebrate life, love, Christmas and rock music, all wrapped in tinsel and delivered to you on a golden dream sleigh of almost ludicrous proportions.

Expect hits, old and new. Beards, flayed by the snow engines of entertainment. Fairy lights, plugged in and mostly working. A few brave and/or immune rockers will have the good fortune to join us in the stadium of dreams for this exclusive event — check out our written facts to understand. This will be an unparalleled night of true artistic integrity, so don’t dilly dally. Let’s rock our cocking socks off together for Christmaaaaaas!”

In other news, The Darkness have also teamed up with Signature Brew to create a new beer called “Bells End.” Guitarist Dan Hawkins said the following about the seasonal bitter ale:

“The tasting session for Bells End went well. It was a big night and we tried every ale that we could think of. We wanted a beer that’s punchy and drinkable at the same time. Signature Brew really know their stuff and captured exactly what we were after. Bells End has got a bit of oomph to it but it’s something you can drink in the run-up to Christmas and throughout the whole season. It’s a very wintry beer, it’s perfect and we can’t wait for everyone to try it.”

On November 15, 2019 we figured out the answers to those questions by capturing our entire show in London and we couldn’t be more excited to show it to everyone. London has consistently been one of our favorite places to play and this show was certainly one we’ll never forget, so we present to you our first live album…Periphery: Live in London!”

Frontman George Clarke commented:

“Earlier this year we intended on celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Deafheaven demo released through Bandcamp on June 1, 2010 with a tour of North America with our friends Inter Arma, Greet Death and All Your Sisters.

Unfortunately, we couldn’t fulfill that tour because of fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. To rebound from the financial and morale hit, we put together an album of the set we intended to perform.

Revisiting the songs in this studio sessions format with Jack Shirley at Atomic Garden reminded us of how important these years have been. I’m thankful we were able to give songs like ‘Daedalus,’ the first we wrote, and other favorites like ‘Vertigo‘ and ‘Kettle‘ new power after so many years of playing them.

They made me think of the people who played on them with us. For the first time we’ve included information on who played on what tracks and when they were originally released. We included thank yous in the liner notes to these musicians who’ve spent time with this project, on tour or on record and all of the touring crew, label support and management support who have helped us this past decade.

We’re thankful we were able to do this project and that fans have stuck with us as we make new music for 2021. Thank you for helping us move forward and I hope you enjoy this record as a small interim in the Deafheaven story. We’ll see you soon.”

Spencer Charnas commented:

“The Worcester Palladium holds a very special place in the heart of INK’s history. On September 22nd, 2000, I attended a Goldfinger/Mest concert there that changed the course of my life. I knew after that incredibly high-energy show that I wanted to dedicate my life to writing and performing my own music.

One year later, INK’s first show would take place on the very same stage at a battle of the bands that we did not win. The concert is pictured in this album insert. 18 years later we sold out the very same 3,000 capacity venue and recorded this live album there—a full circle moment that I will never forget. This album is dedicated to the INK psychos who allow us to make murder and mayhem an actual career.”
