Staind's upcoming self-titled seventh album, which is scheduled for release next Tueday, the 13th, stands as one of the band's most intense and powerful works to date. The release was produced by Johnny K, who collaborated with the band on 2008's Grammy Award-nominated The Illusion Of Progress, and mixed by Chris Lord-Alge. The sessions started in Aaron Lewis' barn in Western Massachusetts but by the time they wrapped; drummer Jon Wysocki had been fired and the relationship between the remaining band members was pushed to its limits.

In this one-hour Staind radio special on 103GBD, Staind's Aaron Lewis, Mike Mushock and Johnny April sit down with longtime friend of the band, Mike Karolyi, and provide the whole story as they discuss the dysfunction, tension and challenges that went into making this release and what's ahead now that the band has come out the other side. New songs from the album are featured along with the introspective and revealing conversation between Karolyi and the band. This is one special that Staind fans will not want to miss. Catch it 9pm Saturday night on 103GBF. Also listen all weekend during the 103GBF GRAB BAG WEEKEND to score a digital download of the new Staind album before it’s released!
