    • Staind - BERLIN, GERMANY - OCTOBER 14: Singer Aaron Lewis of the band Staind performs live during a concert at the Huxleys on October 14, 2011 in Berlin, Germany.
    • Staind - In some ways, Staind's triumphant set at "Epicenter 2011" is emblematic of their journey. They were never into press posturing, awards show bullshit, or trying to be something they're not. They write timeless songs like "Eyes Wide Open", "Spleen", "Mudshovel", and "Something to Remind You" and kick teeth in when they hit stage. Isn't that everything a hard rock band should do? Well, they do it better than anyone… - Rick Florino

    Aaron Lewis of Staind has a gift that very few possess. The man can sit down with an acoustic guitar and pen a song that can bring you to tears while you hum along. He's got that same spirit and spark that Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Kurt Cobain, and Layne Staley all possessed. It's simplistic, direct, and unfiltered, and that's what makes the music so powerful.

    His brand new song "75" stands as the perfect example of that gift. Written while working on the new Staind album and promoting his brand new EP Town Line, the song is another true portrait from Lewis. The lyrics tell the story of rolling down the highway, longing for home, and living on the road.

    Aaron Lewis gave ARTISTdirect.com an exclusive performance of the song with Ben "Kitt" Kitterman supporting. Check out the exclusive video below! You will love it…
