music news 19/04/2019

Aaron Lewis has hinted that more Staind shows could happen this year, following the reunion in 2017.

He floated the idea past concertgoers at his solo gig in Oklahoma City in March, saying:

"So what if I told you that Staind is coming back next year? I might be lying, but I might not. There might even be live shows this year. I can't say for sure. You never know". You can hear this in the video above. 

Finding success in the early 2000s with hits like 'It's Been Awhile' and 'Outside', Staind, the latter of which picked up more success when Limp Biskit's Fred Durst appeared alongside Lewis in a live version of the music video.

Lewis still catches up with Durst for some friendly advice, all while praising him for putting his band on the map in the first place:

"Fred’s the whole reason I’m sitting in front of you tonight. And I gotta say, that at this point in my life I call Fred when I need like Dalai Lama advice, for real," he said to his crowd of fans last month.
