STAIND Guitarist: 'We Would Get Destroyed On OZZFEST'

July 27, 2005

Launch Radio Networks reports: STAIND will perform a Fusion Flash Concert on August 9, the same day that the band releases its new album, "Chapter V". Fans can learn the gig's secret location in Boston by registering at STAIND is one of several acts participating in the Fusion Flash series, which is sponsored by Ford Motors. The shows reflect the "flash mob" concept, where mass crowds meet at specific locations after being alerted via e-mail or text message.

One series of concerts you won't see STAIND involved with is Ozzfest. Guitarist Mike Mushok told Launch that he thinks his band's diverse sound wouldn't go over well with that festival's metal-hungry audience. "I think we'd get destroyed on Ozzfest," he said. "Like, the last two years of Ozzfest has been metal. Honestly, we could go out there and play an hour's worth of real heavy stuff, but I think that there's a perception with the band that that's not what we are, because our success has come from more of the slower, melodic type of tunes, even though there is an aggressive side to what we do."

STAIND is currently opening for 3 DOORS DOWN, along with BREAKING BENJAMIN and NO ADDRESS. The bands play in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio tonight (Wednesday, July 27) and Albany, New York on Friday (July 29).
