After more than a year's delay, melancholy rock trio Staind will release its first DVD, a record of the group's appearance on MTV's "Unplugged," Nov. 12 on Elektra. The DVD will feature the "Unplugged" performance, taped July 16, 2001, along with two additional songs ("Suffer," "Pressure") that didn't air on the original broadcast.

In addition to the 11-song, 72-minute "Unplugged" show, the DVD will also include the video clips for "Mudshovel," "Outside," "Epiphany," and "Fade," as well as behind-the-scenes footage.

The DVD captures Staind in the midst of its commercial breakthrough, a month after the release of its third album, "Break the Cycle" (Elektra), which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200. Buoyed by the singles "Outside" and "It's Been Awhile" (the latter of which spent 16 weeks atop Billboard's Modern Rock chart), the album has sold 4.8 million copies in the U.S. to date, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Elektra says the group is currently working on its fourth album, with a spring 2003 release in its sights.

Here is the track list for the "Unplugged" portion of the DVD:

"Home"
"Me"
"Pressure"
"Excess Baggage"
"Suffer"
"Waste"
"Epiphany"
"It's Been Awhile"
"Can't Believe"
"Fade"
"Outside"
