Multi-platinum rock band Staind has dropped a new single, “Cycle of Hurting,” from their forthcoming album, Confessions of the Fallen. Staind has brought all the goodies to their fans; adding to the excitement, an animated video was produced to support their “Cycle of Hurting” single.
Staind’s highly anticipated new album, Confessions of the Fallen, the band’s first new studio album since 2011, will be released September 15, 2023, via Alchemy Recordings/BMG. Variants of the album, including limited-edition orange vinyl and other exclusive merch items, are available through album pre-order.
The 10 tracks featured on Confessions of the Fallen explore a variety of sonic niches. Debut single “Lowest In Me” (currently top 5 on the active rock chart), “Cycle of Hurting,” “Was Any of it Real?,” and “Hate Me Too” pummel forth with unrelenting fury, the electronics enhancing the frenetic attack from the players. Tracks such as “Out of Time,” “In This Condition,” and “The Fray” are marked by ebb-and-flow arrangements and sweeping dynamic changes, while “Here and Now” and the cautiously optimistic “Better Days” remind us that Staind is no stranger to the pretty – when appropriate, that is.
Lyrically, Confessions of the Fallen draws again from those dark, reflective places Lewis has always mined in Staind’s songs, and these 10 songs are as personal as he’s ever been. A legion of Staind fans will certainly find their better days in these new songs from the band and in a new round of touring that includes a co-headlining trek with good pals Godsmack this summer.
