STAIND: New Audio Interview With AARON LEWIS Available

A 15-minute audio interview with STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis, conducted on July 18, 2009 by "Démentièllement Vôtre" on Québec City, Québec, Canada's CKRL 89.1 FM, has been posted online at this location. Also available are more than 30 pictures of the band's performance at Festival D'ete in Québec City.

"Démentièllement Vôtre" is a metal radio show on the oldest independent Francophone radio station in North America, CKRL 89.1 FM. The program has been airing since February 2003 and can be heard every Friday night from midnight to 6:00 a.m.

Lewis revealed in a recent interview that he plans to get down to business and finally record his debut solo album this fall, after STAIND finishes up its "Stimulate This" summer tour. As for how his solo material will compare to what he does with STAIND, Lewis told The Pulse of Radio, "It's gonna be actually quite different. You know, I don't want to come out and do a solo record that's gonna be 'STAIND light.' You know, it just, it needs to be different and it's going to be. I don't want to give too much away, you know, but it's going to be very different. Chances are I won't even sing the same way as that I normally do. It's gonna definitely be different."

Lewis has done solo tours every winter for the past several years, usually playing casinos and small venues. He's tested out some solo material at these gigs.

STAIND kicked off the "Stimulate This" tour on July 1 in Peoria, Illinois, as the band continues to support 2008's "The Illusion Of Progress" album.

The trek, which also includes SHINEDOWN, CHEVELLE and HALESTORM, is working with promoters to give concertgoers breaks on concessions, parking and products from local businesses.
