Staind Acoustic Performances Highlight Forthcoming DVD

Staind is getting ready to release a DVD, which will feature music videos, an acoustic session, and backstage interviews with the band. The still-untitled collection is tentatively scheduled for a November 20 release. The DVD is scheduled to contain the videos for “Mudshovel” and “Fade,” as well as the band’s entire MTV Unplugged broadcast plus two additional songs that didn’t make the show, “Pressure” and “Suffer.”

Earlier this year Staind’s acoustic side drew attention, when Aaron Lewis’ version of “Outside,” with special guest Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst, appeared on the Family Values ’99 album, and eventually topped Billboard’s Modern Rock chart. Lewis told LAUNCH, “The acoustic version being out, that was all a complete natural occurrence. It was accidental. That song was just supposed to be a bonus track on the Family Values CD. It wasn’t supposed to be a single. It came out and it carried us from Dysfunction to Break The Cycle better than anybody could have ever planned it out to be. But what was crazy is there was nothing planned about it. It just happened, perfectly.”

Staind is part of this year’s Family Values Tour, which kicks off Thursday (October 11) in Cleveland.
