Band to make their Atlantic Records debut with 2011 release
Staind have announced that they will release their new album ‘Seven’ later this year through Atlantic Records.
“It’s a modern-sounding version of a heavy Staind record,” guitarist Mike Mushok explained. “It’s completely different than the last record [2008’s ‘The Illusion Of Progress’]. It’s more of a throwback to where we came from. [But] I don’t think there’s any rehashed riffs; I definitely think it’s fresh.”
Mushok goes on to reveal that the record was pretty “difficult” to make. “It was a tough one,” he says. “And it wasn’t even the music or writing it; it’s just that there were a lot of things going on, and it made for a long, drawn-out process, it seemed. But I’ll tell you what – looking back, now that it’s done, I’m really, really happy with it.”
