STAIND Announce Temporary Hiatus - Official Statement Available!

Aaron Lewis, vocalist and frontman of Massachusetts Hard Rock outfit STAIND, has revealed to Billboard.com that his band is planning to go on a temporary hiatus after they complete their current album cycle next year.

STAIND released its self-titled latest album in September 2011 and is currently preparing for the August 17 launch of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. A full list of tour dates and all the details can be seen below.

"The touring that we've done this year has been good," Lewis told Billboard.com. "We've got this next tour and we might do something next year and then we're going to take a little break for a second. We're not breaking up. We're not gonna stop making music. We're just going to take a little hiatus that really hasn't ever been taken in our career. We put out seven records in 14 years. We've been pretty busy."

The third annual Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival will kick off August 17 in Kansas City, Missouri, criss-crossing the U.S. before wrapping September 30 in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival main stage will feature performances from multiplatinum rock bands SHINEDOWN, GODSMACK, STAIND and PAPA ROACH, along with breaking band ADELITAS WAY. In addition, the Ernie Ball Stage and Jägermeister Stage in the festival area will include performances from multiplatinum headliner P.O.D., as well as up-and-coming artists DEUCE, FOZZY, REDLIGHT KING, MINDSET EVOLUTION (winner of the 2011 Uproar Battle Of The Bands), IN THIS MOMENT, THOUSAND FOOT KRUTCH, CANDLELIGHT RED and a local Battle Of The Bands winner.
