Los Angeles, CA, June 23, 2007 — GRAMMY-nominated Staind frontman Aaron Lewis resumes his highly successful, solo-acoustic tour “Have Guitar, Will Travel” July 27, allowing fans to experience the iconic singer/songwriter in an intimate, one-of-a-kind setting. Armed solely with guitar, Lewis will perform Staind hits along with favorite obscure cover tunes, while also taking special audience requests. The highly dynamic performer also customizes his set on-the-spot, making every show fresh and spontaneous. Lewis, who is widely recognized as one of the most prolific and relevant artists of his era, first captivated a generation with his solid MTV Unplugged performance nearly a decade ago. He brings simplicity and the great craft of songwriting back to the forefront of rock, as he continues to sell out venues across the nation - with just his guitar and songs. Lewis sold-out nearly all the dates on his initial solo, acoustic run - with many markets selling out in minutes.

Prior to Lewis resuming his “Have Guitar, Will Travel” solo acoustic tour, he will hit the road with Staind, who are scheduled to release new, original music in 2008 (date tba).

Flip/Atlantic Records released Staind’s first-ever hits collection entitled The Singles: 1996-2006, along with the simultaneous release of a separate companion DVD, Staind: the Videos. The 16-track recording features such #1 rock radio staples as “It’s Been Awhile,” “For You,” “So Far Away,” and “Right Here,” along with never-before released live acoustic cover versions of Pink Floyd’s “Comfortably Numb,” Tool’s “Sober,” Alice In Chains’ “Nutshell,” and a live, acoustic version of “Everything Changes.” The version of “Outside” appearing on the album is also the same original cut that was included on the Family Values Tour 1999 with Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst.

To date, Staind has sold more than 15 million records worldwide, with its last three albums entering the Billboard 200 in the #1 spot. 2005’s Chapter V has been certified RIAA platinum and features the single “Right Here,” which marked the group’s fourth #1 rock radio track.
