Aaron Lewis Got Wasted And Accidently Played Staind’s “It’s Been Awhile” Twice During Recent Solo Show

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis ended up getting wasted and accidently performed the band’s hit song “It’s Been Awhile” twice during his July 21 solo show at Bottle & Cork in Dewey Beach, DE. Towards the end of the second performance, he realized the mistake and told the audience the following:

“You know what I’m realizing right this second? That I’m drunk enough that I should be playing ‘Outside’ right now, and instead I’m playing a fucking song I already played tonight. Which means I might be slightly overserved. So should I play the fucking song that I was supposed to be playing the whole fucking time? Because maybe I might have smoked a little bit too much weed tonight. I will say that’s a first. That’s a first right there… I’ll hear about that one tomorrow. Actually, I’m gonna call you out and we’ll see whether you guys out me tomorrow for that. So I guess we’ll just see how much y’all love me, ’cause no one else except everybody in this room just saw that happen, so you can give me a free pass. It is entirely and totally up to you, so we’ll see whether I’m hiding my face in shame tomorrow, ’cause I have definitely seen a whole lot of cameras recording this, which… super comfortable.”

Mike Mushok Says Staind Have “A Bunch Of Songs Kicking Around” For Their Next Album

During a recent interview with Audio Ink Radio, Staind’s Mike Mushok offered an update on the writing process for the band’s new album. He said the following:

“We’re working on that now. Aaron [Lewis] is finishing up a country record; he’s just about done with it. I think the idea is once that’s completed, we’re gonna… There’s a bunch of [new] songs kicking around. It’s just kind of [a matter of] sorting through that stuff and seeing what, if anything, we like, and figuring out… I imagine, having not put out a real record of new music in 10 years, we’re gonna be pretty critical of what it is and wanna make sure that it’s great. But, yes, there is talk of that. We actually signed a record deal and have a deal to do a new record.”

Aaron Lewis (Staind) On New Solo Material: “It’s Somewhere Between Pink Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ And Billie Eilish”

It looks like Staind frontman Aaron Lewis is sitting on some different sounding solo material. He said the following about that during a recent interview with Billboard:

“It’s like 30 ideas, but they don’t fit with anything that’s going on right now. They don’t fit Staind. They don’t fit with my country thing. It’s somewhere between Pink Floyd‘s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon‘ and Billie Eilish — very dreamscape-y, very ethereal. The musical landscape is quite simple and sparse; there’s a lot of stuff going on without much stuff going on. It’ll be much more focused around melody.”

Staind Stream Live Version Of “Mudshovel”

Staind are streaming a live version of their song “Mudshovel.” This version of the track is from the band’s new live album “Live: It’s Been Awhile,” which will be released on May 7. That effort was recorded during an October 2019 show at Foxwoods in Mashantucket, CT. Footage of the set will 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. Mike Mushok said the following about “Mudshovel”:

“There hasn’t been a gig since we first wrote this song in ’96 where we haven’t played ‘Mudshovel‘. It’s definitely become a fan favorite and I have as much fun playing it now as I did back then.”

Staind Hoping To Release New Album In 2022

Staind previously announced that they are planning to release a new live album on May 7 to coincide with a two-part streaming series, but now it looks like a new studio album may be on the way as well. During an appearance on SiriusXM‘s “Trunk Nation With Eddie Trunk,” frontman Aaron Lewis said that the band are hoping to release a new record sometime next year:

“I would certainly love to have it recorded and done by the end of this year, to be released next year. All of our plans that were kind of semi on the books and on the table, everything just had a year taken off of it [due to the pandemic]. We were gonna have a record come out sometime in 2020 or certainly in 2021, and there was a schedule that was on the table that, just like everything else, got burned to the ground as soon as [the lockdown] started.”
