If someone says to you “it’s been a while” and you automatically sing “since I could hold my head up high” in your head, then you are especially going to want to tune in to see what Multi-platinum rock band Staind and Danny Wimmer Presents have announced!
STAIND will beÂ releasing their first album in nine years, Live: Itâs Been Awhile, May 7 via Yapâem / Alchemy Recordings. Pre-order the album HERE.Â
The Live: Itâs Been Awhile album will be accompanied by The Return Of Staind: A Two-Part Global StreamingÂ Series in partnership with Danny Wimmer Presents. The series launches with STAINDâs Live: Itâs Been AwhileÂ (From Foxwoods) concert, which streams globally on May 1. The Live: Itâs Been Awhile album and concert were recorded at the bandâs comeback show at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT in October 2019. The never-before-seen concert celebrates the bandâs reunion after a five-year hiatus.Â
âThese were the first grouping of shows we played together in 2019 when we were gearing up for what was to be a very busy 2020…that never happened,â says STAIND lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist, Aaron Lewis. âIâmÂ glad we captured that energy here and can share it with those who couldnât be at Foxwoods.âÂ
STAIND will also be performing their iconic multi-platinum 2001 album Break The Cycle in its entirety for a MayÂ 8 streaming event, exactly 20 years after the albumâs release. The 20th Anniversary Of Break The Cycle,Â Performed In Its Entirety takes place at Mill 1 in Open Square in Holyoke, Massachusetts, bringing the band back to their Western Mass roots. Please note, this is a fully virtual event, with no in-person attendance.Â
âOur first show together in 1995 was at a now-defunct bar called the Waterfront in Holyoke,â says Aaron. âWe played mostly covers because thatâs what you had to do back then. Turns out The Waterfront is two miles from where we did this. Here we are, two miles down the road, 26 years later, celebrating the anniversary of theÂ album that helped us breakthrough 20 years ago and altered our lives forever.âÂ
Both global streaming events debut at 2:00 PM PDT / 5:00 PM EDT / 10:00 PM BST / 11:00 PM CEST on theirÂ respective days and will be available on-demand for 72 hours. Watch the official trailer for The Return Of Staind:Â A Two-Part Global Streaming Series here:

After a five-year hiatus, STAIND roared back on the scene in 2019 with a series of electrifying live performances,Â including DWPâs Louder Than Life and Aftershock festivals.Â Â
âBreak The Cycle was huge â in 2001 it debuted at #1 with over 700,000 copies sold in its first week â but itâs more than just a hit record. Itâs a defining moment for the genre, the way it flows from beauty to heaviness â and Aaron Lewis was the perfect instrument for those melodies, those lyrics. Nobody in the genre could match the dynamics of Aaronâs voice,â says Danny Wimmer, founder of Danny Wimmer Presents. âWhen Staind came back in 2019, they sounded as good as ever, and the fan demand for what the band had planned for 2020 was through the roof. Now in 2021, thereâs no way we were going to miss this opportunity to celebrate 20 years ofÂ such a pivotal record and carry that momentum into the next era of Staind.âÂ
In 2020, Danny Wimmer Presents entered the digital content curation space, promoting pay-per-view live streams and creating the popular digital series Offstage with DWP. DWP is known worldwide for its stellarÂ portfolio of music and lifestyle events, which includes Aftershock, Bourbon & Beyond, Epicenter, HometownÂ Rising, Louder Than Life, Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival, and Welcome To Rockville.Â
