STAIND's AARON LEWIS Has Finished Recording His Third Country Music Solo Album

STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis has confirmed that he has completed work on his third country music album. The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2016's "Sinner" will arrive in early 2019.

Lewis spoke about his upcoming disc during an interview with Bill Hernandez. He said (hear audio below): "I've already recorded my next record. And [I'm] just waiting on a mastered, final product. And then we'll start putting together the plan for a first-quarter-of-next-year release."

Aaron's next disc is expected to contain some of the new songs he has been performing at his solo shows in recent months, including "The Party's Over" and "Reconsider".

Lewis's career in country music began in 2011 with the release of his "Town Line" EP. A full-length album, "The Road", followed in 2012.

Aside from a STAIND tour in summer 2014, that band has been inactive and Lewis said that fans should not expect to see a reunion any time soon. "I definitely see it staying on hold for a while," he told Rapid City Journal this past August. "I've got to stay focused on this [country career]. I've got to take this to where it needs to get to before I can start risking things with the good ol' boy network reception and throwing in a handful of STAIND shows in the summertime along with all of my country shows. But that's down the road. I can't even think about that right now."

STAIND guitarist Mike Mushok is now playing in SAINT ASONIA with former THREE DAYS GRACE frontman Adam Gontier. The band's debut album was released in July 2015.
