After taking a break from performing live, Staind played their first show out and recorded it for a DVD/CD release. Titled Live From Mohegan Sun, the band says they were thrown into the fire. Front man Aaron Lewis says that Staind never really “had the opportunity to get back on the bicycle and remember how to ride,” before they recorded the show. It’s not that they couldn’t rehearse, the band says that’s just how the schedule worked out. As for some of the banter back and forth on stage—don’t expect to see that on Staind’s August 14th DVD/CD release. However, if you want to hear Aaron Lewis talk in-between songs, you’ll be able to do that when he performs his country set at the Illinois State Fair August 10th.
Lamb of God & Dethklok cancel tour
This was a given, considering Randy Blythe is still held up in a Prague jail--Lamb of God and Dethklok have called off their upcoming tour. Blythe was arrested in the death of a fan that was thrown off a Czech Republic stage in 2010 and died two weeks later. He was charged with contributing to the fan’s death by pushing him off stage. There’s still no word on a bond or a even a trial. With things so uncertain, both Lamb of God and Dethklok still plan to take to the road in the future—even if it’s separate tours.
