Staind have released a new version of their recent single, “Better Days.” The re-release features a special guest appearance from Dorothy. Stream the official lyric video below.

The song is from Staind’s latest album, Confessions of the Fallen. The record arrived last September, and it was their first release through their new label, BMG. The long awaited follow-up to the band’s 2011 self-titled LP, Confessions of the Fallen debuted at No. 4 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart. A pair of singles made their way onto Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart – “Here and Now” and “Lowest in Me,” the latter of which gave Staind their first No. 1 hit since their 2011 song, “Not Again.”

Next week, Staind and Seether are mounting a co-headlining tour across the United States. Very special guests for the trek will be Saint Asonia. The run will see guitarist Mike Mushok pulling double duty, as he will open the shows performing with Saint Asonia, and closing them out with Staind. The Tailgate Tour kicks off on April 22 at the Brandon Amphitheater in Brandon, Missouri and wraps up on May 15 at the Oak Mountain Amphitheatre in Pelham, Alabama. The tour includes stops at North Charleston Coliseum, Bon Secours Wellness Arena, and Santander Arena, among others. Tim Montana will open all shows.

Since 1999, Staind and Seether have been consistent forces in rock music. Together, both bands combine for nine No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart, and have dominated rock radio for two decades. Several of these hits crossed over to pop radio, and charted on the Billboard Hot 100. From 2001 to 2005, Staind released three albums that all hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Beginning with 2005’s Karma and Effect, Seether released four straight albums that all debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200.

This fall, Staind and Breaking Benjamin are hitting the road on a co-headlining tour. The trek kicks off on September 10 at The Pavilion at Star Lake in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania and wraps up on October 25 at the Germania Insurance Amphitheater in Austin, Texas. Very special guests for the run will be chart-topping rockers Daughtry, along with support from Lakeview.
