The Pulse of Radio reports: STAIND frontman Aaron Lewis is getting ready to hit the road for his annual post-holiday solo acoustic tour, which starts on Friday (January 2) in the Green Valley Ranch resort in Henderson, Nevada. Following that and some more touring with STAIND, Lewis hopes to begin recording his first solo album in the spring. Although he wants to produce the project himself, he said that those plans could always change. "I'll be doing it at my house in my studio, and I'm very open-minded," he said. "If we get to a point and I'm just like, 'You know what? To take these songs to the next level I've got to get (STAIND producer) Johnny K. to come up here and help me out a little bit,' then that's what I'll do. But as it stands, I'm gonna attempt to do it myself."
STAIND will head to Europe for a month of dates beginning in mid-January as the group continues supporting its latest album, "The Illusion of Progress".
The band has posted a video online for a new single from the CD, "The Way I Am", which follows "Believe" and "All I Want".
