Staind & Their Stimulus Package

Staind is doing their part to help rock fans during the global recession.

Most tickets for their upcoming tour will cost under $40 and some amphitheater lawn tickets will be priced at $10.

Staind is comprised of lead singer/guitarist Aaron Lewis, lead guitarist Mike Mushok, bassist/vocalist Johnny April and drummer Jon Wysocki

Staind is comprised of lead singer/guitarist Aaron Lewis, lead guitarist Mike Mushok, bassist/vocalist Johnny April and drummer Jon Wysocki. The band has released six studio albums.

The hard rock band from Springfield, Massachusetts is calling their latest North America tour “Stimulate This.” The 40-date excursion begins July 1st in Peoria.

Touring with the band will be Shinedown and Chevelle, so get ready for Staind, Shinedown and Chevelle Philadelphia tickets, incidentally that’s also the tour’s final destination. Speaking of Pennsylvania, the state’s own Halestorm will also be on bill.

In addition to the inexpensive tickets, Staind fans in select markets will be able to use their tickets to get discounts on concessions, local retail outlets and band merchandise.

For each concert, a contest winner will be allowed to participate in a mini-backstage jam session involving members from all four bands. The contests have yet to be determined but more than likely they will involve a local radio stations.

Lastly, the band’s record label, Atlantic Records, will be giving away five pairs of tickets to each show. To win these tickets, fans must submit a story to describing why they deserve free Staind tickets in these tough economic times.

Land of Punt thinks this is a great idea. In fact, we like it so much that we’re entering the contest—although we’re not sure if we want Staind Boston Tickets or Staind Los Angeles Tickets.

Dear Atlantic Records,
These Dust Bowl Days have slashed us to our very core as our suffering is truly unfathomable and nearly unbearable. Seeing the “Stimulate This” Tour for free would be a musical salve that would sooth our deep, festering wounds.

Yes, my dear Atlantic Records the unthinkable has happen. These hard economic times has made it almost impossible for Land of Punt (a quasi-mythological land located in the horn of Africa) to pirate music. It’s hard to believe, but it’s true. Just think of us as another causality of the global recession.

First of all, our friends can no longer afford to buy CD’s which they would then loan to us so we can rip them into our ITunes. Secondly, we had to drastically cut back on our bandwidth. This has greatly reduced the amount of music we can download from the internet. In the past week alone, we’ve only been able to download four albums and three EP’s.

This truly is the winter of our discontent.

Already this month we’ve had to skip the new Jarvis Cocker, the new Kate Voegele, and the new Iron & Wine. New music is coming in so slowly, we’ve actually been forced to listen to music from 2008!

Not only that, but you’d cringed if you heard the movies we’ve been forced not to download.

A pair of Staind tickets would go a long way to alleviate the pain and suffering the economic downturn has caused to our vast music pirating efforts. We have just one question: can we bring a recording device to the show?

Respectfully Yours,
Land of Punt
