FOR iMMEDiATE RELEASE:
2016 - The polls have closed for
recent ARTIST OF
THE MONTH campaign. Voters from all over the U.S. and the world made
and grunge rock legends CANDLEBOX
newest ARTIST OF THE
MONTH. When you're
old as I am 22 years feels like it goes in a flash and because of that
the debut album from CANDLEBOX feels like it was a released just
yesterday. Memories of it come back to me in the form of that album's
singles CHANGE, FAR BEHIND and YOU and for the fact that the
signed to MADONNA's MAVERICK RECORDS - a proposition that probably
helped the album attain multi-platinum status. I seem to remember a few
grunge folks being puzzled by the signing and leery of the success. Ah
fuck them and fuck the nineties. CANDLEBOX deserved every bit of their
success.Two more albums would follow on the MAVERICK label (1995's LUCY
and 1998's HAPPY PILLS). After a ten year hiatus CANDLEBOX reunited for
the 2008 album INTO THE SUN (SILENT MAJORITY GROUP) and 2012's LOVE
STORIES & OTHER MUSINGS (AUDIONEST). Now after four years
has signed to PAVEMENT ENTERTAINMENT and has now released the curiously
titled DISAPPEARING IN AIRPORTS. Having worked with producers CARSON
SLOVAK and GRANT McFARLAND (AUGUST BURNS RED, EVERCLEAR) CANDLEBOX now
embraces a modern sound that is more immediate and visceral than any
they've issued in the past - a taste of which could be provided in the
albums first single VEXATIOUS.
Other nominees for ARTIST OF THE MONTH included LOVE AND A .38, CONQUEST, STEWART FRANCKE, DISTRICT AVENUE, CRASHDOLLZ, DIANA REIN
