Aaron Lewis of STAIND berated someone in the crowd for allegedly throwing a beer bottle and hitting a girl in the back of her head during Aaron’s November 6 concert at Cowboys Dance Hall in San Antonio, Texas. Addressing the culprit, Lewis said (see video below): “What the fuck is wrong with you? That’s a glass fucking bottle you just hit some girl in the back of the head with, you fucking douchebag. So I’d appreciate it if you’d continue pointing him out until security gets over there so that we can have his ass throw the fuck out of here. ‘Cause I’m not playing any more until he’s fucking gone…” Lewis paused a few seconds and lit a cigarette while waiting for security to escort the concertgoer out of the venue. He then added: “Get him the fuck out of here. There is no fucking talking.”
Lewis is currently working on the follow-up to his first full-length country album, “The Road”, which came out in November 2012 via Blaster Records through Warner Music Nashville. The new CD is tentatively due in early 2016.
STAIND has been mostly inactive since 2011 and Lewis said in a recent interview that the band is probably going to stay that way for the foreseeable future. Asked by Shout Out Minnesota if the group has any plans, Lewis replied, “Not for a while. Mike Mushok, the guitar player, signed with another band and their new [album] just came out and he’s gonna be busy for three records with that band.”
Mike Mushok is now playing in SAINT ASONIA with former THREE DAYS GRACE frontman Adam Gontier. The band’s debut album came out July 31.
But Lewis maintains that fans have not seen the last of STAIND, saying, “We didn’t break up and at some point STAIND will come back out. I don’t know if we’ll record a record or tour or what the deal will be… so this is what it is for a while.”
STAIND has released seven studio albums dating back to 1996, with 11 Top 10 rock singles and four No. 1 tracks to their credit.
