Creatively titled 'Seven,' Staind will release their seventh studio album reportedly in late September. The first single, "Not Again" is due out later next month.
Staind announced late last month that drummer Jon Wysocki is no longer with the band, wishing him the best but giving no specific reason for his departure. Drummer Will Hunt (Eye Empire, Evanescence) has been filling in as drummer on the band's current tour.
Despite the country sound of his latest solo release, lead singer Aaron Lewis says fans can expect Seven to be the "heaviest" the band has ever released.
"It's the heaviest record or collection of songs we have written in a long time. There's no 'Outsides,' no 'It's Been Awhiles,' no 'Right Heres,' anything like that. It's straightforward and heavy."
