Creed’s former frontman, Scott Stapp has had a rough couple of years dealing with drug abuse and bi-polar disorder. Thankfully, Stapp is now five years sober and is celebrating by releasing a solo album called The Space Between the Shadows which drops in July through Napalm Records. The record is said to revolve around Strapp’s previous six years of struggle and his lessons learned during that time. According to the vocalist, the first single “Purpose for Pain” is an uplifting track and focuses on seeking a higher meaning.

“’Purpose for Pain’ is about seeking a higher meaning, a spiritual mentality when dealing with our struggles and life’s painful moments. There are unexplainable, dark times that everyone goes through, and that pain is real. If we can dig deep and hold on to hope during the most difficult situations, believing there is a purpose waiting for us on the others side, we can find meaning and clarity that gives us the strength to keep fighting.”
