Staind’s Aaron Lewis Releases Studio Version Of His Divisive Solo Track “Let’s Go Fishing”


Staind vocalist Aaron Lewis has newly released the studio version of his controversial track “Let’s Go Fishing“. Lewis, who is outspoken about his right-wing political beliefs, has previously performed the song live. It features lyrics such as:

“The world’s gone crazy and the shit ain’t right
Let’s go runnin’
A little backwoods hidin’
It’s all so fucked up, I can’t stand it
Let’s go, Karen, let’s go, Brandon
And let’s go fishin’

We can make America great again
Turn right on a two-track
And turn off CNN”

The track will be included upon his solo new album “The Hill“, which will meet a March 29th release on The Valory Music Co.. Lewis said of that approaching acoustic effort:

“Music has always been my escape, my way of expressing the things that I don’t express very well in life. I’m coming up on 52 years old, and I’m on the hill I’m going to stand on. Nobody’s going to change me now. This record is a snapshot of my life and how I’m feeling and where my head is at — and that’s what my records have always been.

It’s another record that’s just really stripped down to the guts. I like raw. I like life’s imperfections showing through. I’m not perfect, nobody is. And I don’t want the music I’m putting out to be either.”

The Hill” track listing:

01 – “Let’s Go Fishing
02 – “Over The Hill
03 – “Made In China
04 – “Spinnin’
05 – “Over Me
06 – “Outlaw
07 – “Up To Me

As he is known to do, Lewis recently stirred the pot, drawing controversy for announcing a tour in support of the album alongside this photo of numerous coyote carcasses arranged to spell out support for Donald Trump‘s U.S. presidential bid. He was ultimately forced to reschedule some dates of that run due to illness, which is now underway, but it is now underway.
