Aaron Lewis Assists STP, Linkin Park On Family Values CD

Staind frontman also sings with his own band, offers solo track.

Aaron Lewis owes much of his recent success to the Family Values Tour 2000 album, which featured his acoustic “Outside” single, so it’s fitting that the Staind singer is all over the record from the 2001 outing.

Family Values Tour 2001, due May 7, features Lewis solo again on “Black,” with Staind on “Fade” and “It’s Been Awhile,” with Stone Temple Pilots on their classic “Creep,” and with Linkin Park on “One Step Closer,” according to Elektra Records.

The album, the third spawned from the Family Values tour, also features a notable collaboration between Stone Temple Pilots, who slammed rap-rock on the tour (see “Stone Temple Pilots Slam Rap Rockers At Family Values Stop” ), and Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington on “Wonderful.” The song, from STP’s Shangri-La Dee Da (2001), is the live album’s first single.

Static-X and Deadsy singer P. Exeter Blue team up on the record as well, on the former’s “Push It.” Static-X and Deadsy also contribute another track each, “Cold” and a cover of Rush’s “Tom Sawyer,” respectively.

Josh Abraham (Staind, Limp Bizkit) produced Family Values Tour 2001, which was recorded on various dates of the outing last fall.

Stone Temple Pilots, who plan on hitting the road again in April, have four songs on the album, including “Wicked Garden.”

Last year’s Family Values ignited a friendship between Staind and Linkin Park that resulted in Lewis collaborating with the rap-rockers for their upcoming remix album (see “Staind’s Aaron Lewis Joins Linkin Park On ’Crawling’ Remix” ).

The first two Family Values live albums have been certified platinum.
