STAIND To Close Out HOWARD STERN's Final FM Broadcast

STAIND will be the sole musical guest on Howard Stern's final traditional radio broadcast, slated for Friday, December 16. The group will perform on 56th Street in Manhattan, outside the studios of radio station K-Rock (WXRK). Stern and his show will move to Sirius Satellite Radio in January.

A longtime STAIND fan and friend, Stern invited the band to create their own rendition of "The BeetleJuice Song" — originally performed on the show by frequent guest BeetleJuice. STAIND debuted their original acoustic arrangement of the song on "The Howard Stern" show this past summer. A recording of that live performance is included on the new limited-edition CD/DVD of STAIND's current album, "Chapter V". Entitled "This Is Beetle" aka "The BeetleJuice Song", it was written by Lester Green (aka BeetleJuice) and composer Richard Christy (former DEATH/ICED EARTH drummer and current Stern sidekick).

That same night, December 16, STAIND will headline the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, presented by K-Rock. The show is part of the band's current "Fall Brawl" cross-country tour, which also features Atlantic labelmates P.O.D. and TAPROOT, plus Texas rockers FLYLEAF.

The just-released limited edition CD/DVD version of "Chapter V" features the entire original album, plus five bonus tracks — including an acoustic version of "It's Been Awhile" and "This Is Beetle". The bonus DVD features a full band documentary, plus extras including the "Right Here" video, two songs filmed live, bonus interviews, and outtakes. The deluxe package includes a 36-page book featuring the lyrics to all STAIND songs, a photo history of the band, and liner notes.
