Staind Back On Tour
The Massachusetts-based band kicked off the trek on January 29th at Philadelphia's Electric Factory (see attached itinerary). The headline dates continue across the country through a February 19th show at the Myth in Minneapolis. Support for all dates will come from Theory of a Deadman and Loser.
In addition, Staind just played a special homestate performance on January 28th. The band performed live at Boston's TD Banknorth Garden, immediately following the NHL's Boston Bruins vs. New York Islanders game.
Staind is also set for another major sports-related performance on February 11th, when they will be the headline act for pre- and post-race concert festivities at the 28th annual Budweiser Shootout at Daytona. Taking place at the Daytona International Speedway, the event is the official kick-off of the NASCAR Nextel Cup season and will be broadcast live on TNT. Staind's Aaron Lewis will sing the National Anthem prior to the Budweiser Shootout, and the band will perform a free concert for ticket holders at the conclusion of the all-star race.
Following the U.S. itinerary's conclusion, Staind will head to Europe for a much-anticipated month-long tour, including stops in England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands.
"Chapter V" (Flip/Atlantic), the fifth album from Staind, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 this past August, marking the Massachusetts-based band's third consecutive chart-topper. The album follows 2003's critically acclaimed "14 Shades of Grey" and 2001's quintuple platinum "Break the Cycle," both of which also entered the Billboard 200 in the #1 spot.
The new album has thus far yielded two radio smashes -- the #1 multi-format hit, "Right Here," and the current single, "Falling," which has bulleted into the top ten on both the Rock and Active Rock charts. "Right Here" marked the band's fourth #1 radio track to date, following "For You," "It's Been Awhile," and "So Far Away."
The recently released Limited Edition CD/DVD version of "Chapter V" features the entire original album, plus five bonus tracks, including an acoustic version of "It's Been Awhile" and "This Is Beetle." The bonus DVD features a full band documentary, plus extras including the "Right Here" video, two songs filmed live, bonus interviews, and outtakes. The deluxe package includes a 36-page book featuring the lyrics to all Staind songs, a photo history of the band, and liner notes.
