Staind are working on some new material.
Aaron Lewis broke the news to Sully Erna on the Godsmack singer’s Hometown Sessions show Tuesday, saying that “I’m working on new Staind [crap]. We’re toying around with some creativity.” The move to work on new songs isn’t that surprising, since Staind played a handful of shows last fall and were going to open for Disturbed this summer. (That trek has been postponed to next summer.) The group’s last album of new material was their self-titled album in 2011.
Lewis also revealed that he’s doing another solo album, but this one won’t be another country effort. Lewis explained, “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.”
