Staind is back with a new live album taken from their short-lived 2019 reunion.
Live: It’s Been Awhile was recorded in October 2019 at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. The live album features songs from five of the band’s seven studio album, excluding 1996’s Tormented and 2008’s The Illusion of Progress.
Frontman Aaron Lewis says the band was “gearing up for what was to be a very busy 2020…that never happened.” But he says the live album “captured that energy” for fans who weren’t able to be there.
Live: It’s Been Awhile will be out May 7th. The band is also planning a two-part livestream event titled The Return of Staind, premiering May 1st and May 8th.
Staind will livestream the aforementioned 2019 Foxwoods show on May 1st. On May 8th, they’ll perform their #1, 5x Platinum third album, Break the Cycle in its entirety via livestream to celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary.
