Staind will release a new live recording next month.

The band is scheduled to release its never-before-seen recording, Live: It’s Been a While May 7 through Yap’em/Alchemy Recordings. Pre-orders are open now. The recording’s release is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release of the band’s landmark album Break The Cycle.

The concert featured in the recording was captured in October 2019 at the Foxwoods Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

Front man Aaron Lewis talked about the concert during a recent interview.

“These were the first grouping of shows we played together in 2019, when we were gearing up for what was to be a very busy 2020…that never happened,” said Lewis.  “I’m glad we captured that energy here and can share it with those who couldn’t be at Foxwoods.”
