The headbanging foursome so far has 50 dates lined up through July, mixing it up with festivals, solo club shows, and a handful of concerts where they’ll share stages with the likes of Fuel, Buckcherry, Green Day, and Oleander.

Puddle of Mudd will open for the band through May 20 and on a few scattered dates through June 8.

In the midst of it all, Staind will celebrate the May 22 release of their sophomore major-label effort, Break the Cycle.

While the band has been fortunate enough to get some early career assistance from Limp Bizkit frontman and Interscope exec Fred Durst, Staind has worked its way up the music food chain through hard work and incessant touring.

Since mid-1998 they’ve played more than 200 shows, opening tours for Limp Bizkit, Korn, Kid Rock, Godsmack, Sevendust, and Monster Magnet, in addition to traveling with the Family Values and Warped Tour caravans. And they’ve managed to headline an outing or two of their own.

The Massachusetts-based band isn’t shy about acknowledging the support of Limp Bizkit and Durst, who helped get them signed to a record label after seeing a live show in late 1997.
