STAIND Name New Album

MTV News is reporting that STAIND have set "Chapter V" as the title of their fifth album and the band's first album on Flip/Atlantic Records. While a definitive street date hasn't been firmed up yet (STAIND singer Aaron Lewis' wife is pregnant and due in May, "so it will be sometime shortly after that," guitarist Mike Mushok said), the record is expected to drop early this summer. Mushok added that the band intends to spend most of the summer touring in support of "Chapter V"; but again, the imminent birth of Lewis' child has put finalizing those plans on hold for now.

Mushok said "Chapter V" will feature 11, maybe 12, new STAIND tunes, among them "Paper Christ" and "Falling", along with "Right Here", a strong contender for the album's lead-off single.

"I know right now that I could play our new record, beginning to end, and not have any problem with it," Mushok said. "I don't think I felt that with [2003's '14 Shades of Grey'] for some reason. I mean, I loved that record. I'm proud of it, and I thought there were some really good songs on there, but it really didn't turn out exactly the way I wanted. This new record, to me, has that feeling — that when I am playing a song for someone, I'm sitting there, looking forward to playing the next song for them and the song after that."
