Throughout his more than two-decade career, whether topping the charts as the frontman of hard rock heroes Staind, or his second act as a No. 1 artist on the country charts as a solo artist, Aaron Lewis has always been painfully honest in his music.
“That’s all I’ve ever done. My songs have always been me wearing my heart on my sleeve, and my emotions on my sleeve, and my misfortunes on my sleeve, my sins on my sleeve,” Lewis says. “I don’t feel like it would be genuine nor worthy of this crazy ride I’ve been on if it wasn’t.”
He is 100% open, as he has to be, about his stunning new collection, STATE I’M IN (The Valory Music Co.).
“The songs I wrote on this record, they were some dark times,” he says. “The state I’m in is not Mississippi, or Texas, or Massachusetts, it’s more about the emotional state I’m in and everything I’ve surprisingly talked about in this interview. I’m always surprised by what comes out of me. I’m always surprised by the overall content of a record. It is a flow of consciousness.”
For Lewis, who remains on the road year-round, new songs are the most exciting way to spice up the live set and, as he puts it, “Hit the refresh button.” So, he’s been playing several songs off STATE I’M IN and has been very excited by the response.
“It’s always nice to put some new stuff in there and even better when people react to it the way people have been reacting to these new songs,” he says. “They’re hearing them for the first time and reacting to them like they’ve known them. And the reaction to the songs was like they were a song off their favorite record. That’s always motivating and hopeful.”
Maybe it is fitting in the dark times that led to this record, Lewis finds his salvation and hope in playing the new material live. As he says, in his powerful honesty, music is the one thing that has kept him going all these years.
“It’s absolutely been my saving grace. I don’t know how I made it through high school. I don’t know how many times I should’ve died in high school. I don’t know how I could’ve channeled that self-destructive energy away from me in any other way than to have writing as an outlet,” he says.
Through that outlet, he has helped many others over the years. Something he says makes it all worthwhile. “It makes it make some sort of sense,” he says of every time a fan shares a story of how his music has helped them. “It gives me some sort of peace to know that everything I went through in my childhood, and that I’ve gone through in my life, had some sort of purpose.”
