Staind – “Eyes Wide Open”

Staind’s new self-titled record is due out September 13 via Atlantic Records. The album, which is the follow-up to 2008’s ‘The Illusion of Progress,’ was produced by Johnny K and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge.

Frontman Aaron Lewis described ‘Staind’ as “the heaviest thing we have recorded in a long time. It’s definitely one of the heaviest collections of songs that we have put together.”

“It’s completely different than the last record,” stated guitarist Mike Mushok in a statement. “It’s more of a throwback to where we came from. I definitely think it’s fresh. It’s a modern-sounding version of a heavy Staind record. It’s pretty cool.”
