Aaron Lewis has been away from Staind for quite some time. The band hasn’t released any new music since their self titled release back in 2011. Six years later, it seems like the band has been put to rest once and for all.
When Lewis refers to a song he wrote “a lifetime ago” on stage, the crowd immediately goes nuts. They know what is about to come. Spending his time focusing on his solo country career, Lewis has amassed a huge following outside of the army of Staind fans that have known him for years.
On stage, the former Staind frontman launches into a re-imagined version of “It’s Been Awhile” with a full country band performing with him. It sounds like this song was meant to be a country tune all along.
