It was inevitable, and now Aaron "I don't speak Spanish" Lewis confirmed that he's working on new music for Staind.
I still think the first Staind album has some decent hard rock bangers, and the album with "It's Been A While" was good for a moment, but that's where my fandom with Staind ended. However, Staind are probably bigger now than they have been in a while just by being away.
On the latest episode of Godsmack frontman Sully Erna's podcast, Hometown Sessions, Lewis revealed “I’m working on new Staind shit… We’re toying around with some creativity.”
Staind hasn't released an album since 2011, so nearly a decade. Lewis added that he's working on solo material as well, noting that the album is “not gonna be anything except an acoustic guitar and vocals.”
