Atlantic recording group Staind has announced details of their hugely
anticipated new album. "STAIND" -- which marks the iconic hard rock
band's seventh studio album and first full-length release in three
years -- arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on September
13th.

Produced by Johnny K -- known for his work with 3 Doors Down,
Disturbed, and Sevendust, not to mention his Grammy Award-nominated
collaboration with Staind, 2008's "THE ILLUSION OF PROGRESS" -- and
mixed by the legendary Chris Lord-Alge, "STAIND" stands as Staind's
most intense and powerful work to date. The album is heralded by the
new song, "Eyes Wide Open," which premieres today at www.staind.com.
"Not Again," the first official single from "STAIND," will then impact
multi-format rock radio outlets nationwide in mid-July.

Singer/songwriter/guitarist Aaron Lewis recent described "STAIND" as
"the heaviest thing we have recorded in a long time. It's definitely
one of the heaviest collections of songs that we have put together."

"It's completely different than the last record," agrees guitarist
Mike Mushok. "It's more of a throwback to where we came from. I
definitely think it's fresh. It's a modern-sounding version of a heavy
Staind record. It's pretty cool."

"STAIND" has already earned advance acclaim from ARTISTDirect, which
hailed the album as a "timeless masterpiece," praising Lewis' vocals
for "reach(ing) heights that only legends can touch."

In other news, Staind will perform at KROQ's annual rock festival,
Epicenter 2011, slated for September 24th at Irvine, California's
Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. For up-to-the-minute details, please

Staind's decade-plus career has seen worldwide album sales in excess
of 13 million and five #1 singles spanning three different radio
formats. With honest, heartfelt lyrics, resounding guitar chords, and
Aaron Lewis' unmistakable voice, the New England-based band leapt to
the forefront of American alternative metal with 2001's hugely popular
Flip/Elektra third album, "BREAK THE CYCLE." Fueled by the hit
singles, "Outside" and "It's Been Awhile," the album debuted at #1 on
the Billboard 200, ultimately going on to five-times RIAA platinum
certification and worldwide sales of 7 million.

2003's "14 SHADES OF GRAY" saw Staind continuing to dominate rock
radio, spawning the mainstream rock hits, "Price To Play" and "So Far
Away" and earning RIAA platinum certification. Released two years
later, "CHAPTER V" entered the Billboard 200 at #1 -- Staind's third
consecutive platinum-certified, chart-topping debut. In 2008, "THE
ILLUSION OF PROGRESS" made a top 3 debut on the Billboard 200 driven
by the #1 alternative rock song, "Believe."

In addition to his continuing work with Staind, singer Aaron Lewis is
a fervent road warrior, performing solo acoustic shows featuring both
classic Staind songs like "It's Been Awhile" and "Right Here" and
songs from his solo EP "Town Line," which debuted at in the #1 slot on
the Billboard country chart, and #7 on the Billboard 200. "Town Line"
also earned him two CMT video nominations, one for the lead single
"Country Boy," the video for which currently has 10 million views on
