Aaron Lewis has announced plans for an acoustic tour, kicking off October 7th in Boston. Lewis is expected to preview tracks from his solo debut album he finished earlier this year while on the tour. Full tour dates are listed below.
Lewis told Billboard in July that the album did not yet have a release date, but would be released by Atlantic Records.
"It's acoustic guitar based," Lewis said of the solo record, "and I recorded it in Nashville with a bunch of country session musicians. So it's kind of somewhere between country and James Taylor and 'It's Been Awhile.'" Adding to the album's country theme, Hank Williams Jr., George Jones and Charlie Daniels will be featured on the album's first single, titled "Country Boy."
Following the tour, Lewis is expected to reunite with the members of Staind to begin work on the band's follow up to The Illusion of Progress.
