STAIND To Support Troops With Trio Of Shows At U.S. Army Bases

Flip/Atlantic recording group STAIND has announced plans to perform a series of very special live dates for United States military service members. The multi-platinum band will take time out from their eagerly awaited European tour to play three concerts at U.S. Army installations in Germany.

The shows are scheduled for March 3 at the U.S. Army Garrison, Mannheim; March 16 at the U.S. Army Garrison, Franconia; and March 17 at the U.S. Army Garrison, Baumholder. The shows at Mannheim and Franconia are part of "Welcome Home" celebrations for troops returning from combat duty in the Persian Gulf Region. The concerts will see STAIND performing tracks spanning their career — including their most recent effort, 2005's No. 1-charting "Chapter V".

These special shows are new additions to STAIND's much-anticipated month-long tour of Europe. The trek — which kicked off Tuesday, February 28 in Glasgow — includes stops in England, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and the Netherlands.

The European itinerary follows the Massachusetts-based band's recent U.S. headline tour with THEORY OF A DEADMAN and LOSER. Upon their return to the States, STAIND will headline the Jägermeister spring tour, set to begin in mid-April, and will also top the bill at the annual 98 Rock Livestock Festival in Zephyr Hills, Florida, slated for April 29.

"Chapter V" (Flip/Atlantic), the fifth album from STAIND, debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart this past August, marking the Massachusetts-based band's third consecutive chart-topper. The album follows 2003's critically acclaimed "14 Shades of Grey" and 2001's quintuple platinum "Break the Cycle", both of which also entered the Billboard 200 in the No. 1 spot.

The album has thus far yielded three radio smashes — the No. 1 multi-format smash, "Right Here", the top ten Rock/Active Rock track "Falling", and the latest single, "Everything Changes", which is currently ascending the airplay chart at Active Rock outlets nationwide. "Right Here" marked the band's fourth No. 1 radio track to date, following "For You", "It's Been Awhile", and "So Far Away".
