Staind have announced their first studio album in more than a decade. Confessions of the Fallen, the follow-up to 2011's self-titled album, is the band's eighth full-length release, and is preceded by a single, Lowest In Me

"I did want to modernise the sound and bring us up to date," says frontman Aaron Lewis. "You can certainly recognize the band but at the same time you can hear that we've been paying attention and understand what kind of sounds and approaches we can use that maybe weren't around the last time we did this." 

"It’s undeniably Aaron’s voice, and same for the songs," adds guitarist Mike Mushok. "We got together and spent a lot of time focusing on direction, and we really like how it turned out.”

In July, Staind will set out on a co-headlining tour with Godsmack. The run of 25 shows begins at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in St Louis, MO, on July 18, and finishes up at the Germania Insurance Amphitheater in Austin, TX, on August 31.
