Aaron Lewis Working On New Staind Music And New Solo Acoustic Album

It looks like Staind have been working on new material as of late. Frontman Aaron Lewis confirmed the news during an appearance on Godsmack frontman Sully Erna‘s “Hometown Sessions.” On top of that, Lewis also revealed that he is working on a solo acoustic album.

Lewis said the following about Staind:

“I’m working on new Staind shit… We’re toying around with some creativity.”

He also added the following about the acoustic album:

“I’ve got a completely acoustic [album] — no coloration to it. It’s not gonna be country, it’s not gonna be anything except an acoustic guitar and vocals. That’s what’s next.”

“The last show that I played here in Nashville, just me acoustically, with no back-up band or anything. I was playing some of the songs off the country records, and I was playing some of the songs from Staind, but all just me and the acoustic guitar.

That simplifies everything — that takes away the country flavor, that takes away the rock flavor, that takes away everything and just leaves the skeletal structure.

And Scott Borchetta, the president of my record label, was so moved by that show, this next record he wants from me, which would have been a country record, he wants a totally acoustic record.”

“Hello Disturbed Ones! We hope you and your families are all doing well during this crazy time.

We have waited as long as we possibly could to finalize the plans for our 20th Anniversary of The Sickness summer tour. We had hoped that there would be some clear direction and guidelines on how mass gatherings would be conducted this summer. Unfortunately, that clarity has not come and out of an abundance of caution we have made the decision to RESCHEDULE for Next Summer. We are working to get these dates rescheduled and look forward to sharing an update soon.
