Candlebox, the influential, multi-platinum rock band from the powerful ‘90s Seattle music movement, has kicked off its headlining U.S. tour and are headed to Annapolis’ Rams Head On Stage in May. The initial leg of the “Disappearing in Airports Tour 2016” will continue through the first week of May, including festival stops at Welcome to Rockville and Carolina Rebellion.
Vocalist Kevin Martin commented: “We cannot wait to play these new songs from Disappearing in Airports to all of our amazing fans. Love you all. See you soon.”
Candlebox is touring in anticipation of its long overdue sixth album, Disappearing in Airports, which released on April 22 via Pavement Entertainment.
Disappearing in Airports showcases the group’s introspective and poetically candid songwriting with its signature musical immediacy. Candlebox worked with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Everclear, Rivers of Nihil), cutting the record at Think Loud Studios in York, Penn. With vocalist Kevin Martin, Dave Krusen on drums, Adam Kury on bass and the addition of guitarists Mike Leslie and Brian Quinn, the recommitment to creating music that is ‘pissed and urgent’ as well as bringing a new energy to the live show is at this record’s core.
“I want to take Candlebox into a new world, and this record is very different, very diverse for us,” said Kevin Martin. “It’s about growth and pushing the band in the direction for a new audience.”
Formed in Seattle in 1991, Candlebox went quadruple platinum with their 1993 self-titled debut and released two more acclaimed and top-selling albums (1995’s Lucy and 1998’s Happy Pills) before going on a hiatus in 2000. Candlebox regrouped with a 2006 tour, then put out Into the Sun in 2008, followed by 2012’s Love Stories & Other Musings. Candlebox remains one of the most highly requested and played groups on radio, including the band’s mega hits “Far Behind” and “You.”
