'Staind' was produced by Johnny K (Disturbed, Machine Head) and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge. First single, 'Not Again', "was born out of the frustrations of making this record," explains singer/songwriter/guitarist Aaron Lewis. "It came out of being really fucking pissed off and you can hear that in my voice."
Another new track, 'The Bottom', is featured on the 'Transformers: Dark Side of the Moon' movie soundtrack.
Meanwhile, guitarist Mike Mushok sums up the band's return to form:
"It's like 'Dysfunction' 2011," he says, referring to their 1999 release. "The music goes back to where we started, but there's still melody. We were ready to make an album that was heavy from beginning to end. It was time."
The eponymously-titled album will be released on 13th September.
