Biografi

Candlebox is known for an explosive live show and throughout their career, they have toured with such bands as Living Colour, The Flaming Lips, Our Lady Peace, Rush, Henry Rollins, Aerosmith, Godsmack, and Metallica. They were also a featured band on the main-stage at Woodstock ‘94 and made repeat live performances on the David Letterman show.

Drummer Scott Mercado left the band in 1997 and was replaced by former Pearl Jam member Dave Krusen. Krusen left the band in 1999 and was replaced by Shannon Larkin of Ugly Kid Joe. Bardi Martin also left the band that year and was replaced by Rob Redick (formerly of Dig).

They are best known for the singles ”Change,” ”You,” ”Far Behind,” and ”Simple Lessons.” ”Far Behind” entered Billboard’s Top 20 in July of 1993, peaked at #18, and didn’t drop off the charts until January of 1994. The videos for ”Far Behind” and ”You” were in seemingly perpetual rotation on MTV and became two of the most requested videos of 1993. The video for their song ”Understanding” was directed by Gus Van Sant and is memorable for a long shot of lead singer Kevin Martin lip synching underwater.

In 2005, Kevin Martin was recording and performing as the leader of The Hiwatts. Peter Klett was recording and performing as the leader of redlightmusic.

In 2006, Candlebox reunited with their original line-up and embarked on a three-month North American tour from July to October of that year. Candlebox released a ”Best Of” album on May 23, 2006. July 22, 2008 saw the band release their latest album ”Into The Sun.”. This marks the first collaboration of the original lineup since 1996.

The first single, ”Stand” was released to Radio in mid-May and Candlebox officially commences their tour in support of the new record in June 2008. Into the Sun will be Candlebox’s first studio album since 1998’s Happy Pills. The First single ”Stand” has reached as high as number 12 on the national rock air play chart.
