Staind guitarist Mike Mushok has a charming, almost antiquated notion of "home. Mushok and his family live in Farmington, in an area where the families on his street socialize, and he says he's "made a lot of friends" by helping coach his son's little league teams and staying involved in his daughter's activities. The idea that there's a multi-platinum rock star in their midst is something his neighbors are aware of, Mushok acknowledges in a phone conversation earlier this week, but, he says, "I don't go out of my way to point that out, ever. I mean, one of my neighbors is an eye surgeon.
To me, that's pretty cool. I'm very happy we've been in the same place for a while and it's a really nice place with really friendly people. Discussing the concept of home and comfort with a member of one of the eminent practitioners of anguish-metal might seem a bit odd. Staind, though, it turns out, also enjoys looking homeward. After the quartet hit it big in the late '90s and the early part of the new century behind albums like "Break the Cycle," "Chapter V" and "14 Shades of Grey" and songs like "It's Been A While" and "Right Here," Mushok says they began to regard gigs at both Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun as special.
It seems only natural, then, that, last week, Staind released their first album in nine years, an in-concert document titled "Live: It's Been Awhile — Foxwoods The album release is being followed up at 5 p. Saturday when Staind will stream a live, 20th anniversary performance of their entire "Break The Cycle" album. That show will take place from Mill 1 in Holyoke's Open Square, and the stream will then be available for replay until May 11 at p.Staind - Right Here (Official Video)
As for the live Foxwoods album, it was the first show by the band after a five-year hiatus in which vocalist Aaron Lewis focused on his country music career and Mushok worked with his side-project band Saint Ansonia. Bassist Johnny April and drummer Sal Giancarelli round out the group's personnel. The concert was also supposed to kick off a reunion tour scheduled to include several legs and extend through Of course, after only a spate of shows, the pandemic hit and the rest of the tour was cancelled. They — and Mohegan Sun — are just down the road and have always taken great care of us and been very accommodating.
He pauses and reflects. It was fortuitous, he says, that the live album was recorded at Foxwoods. It ended up that it worked out really well, timing-wise, to do Foxwoods.Bob Dylan - Tomorrow Is a Long Time (Official Audio)
What better place to do a reunion show? It's also a bit of thematic fun that Staind's live album, relased inis "Live from Mohegan Sun. Though "Alive: It's Been Awhile" is a fine document of what happened on one magical night, there's is still optimism in spite of the lost tour — a sense of unfinished business or untapped potential. And there are plans for new Staind music.
We ed a record deal recently and we have some ideas we're kicking around. Aaron is finishing up a country record and when that's done, we'll dive a little more into what we're going to do. Reflecting on how the band members have musically matured over their hiatus, Mushok says, "A person definitely changes and grows with age.
On the other hand, a cool riff is a cool riff. My job is to search for something that Aaron wants to sing over. In that sense, it's different but it's still the same, if that makes any sense. We've both changed but ultimately we find ways to connect. Sometimes I write things I think Aaron will like and he doesn't, and sometimes I'll come up with something I think he won't like — and he does.
It's quantity AND quality. If we follow that path, it'll be Staind and it will work out. As for how Staind and any new music they come up with might fit into a musical landscape that has also changed ificantly over the several years the band has been idle, Mushok remains upbeat and positive. I don't think that's the case now It's hard because labels aren't ing bands anymore. They have the same six songwriters writing for the same group of pop artists.
That's what it is now. I always believe there will be people who want to go see other people play and create music and be part of that experience. And that's our responsibility to keep that going. I feel nowhere near my age.
