Candlebox Ready First Album In Ten Years

Candlebox will release their first album in ten years titled Into The Sun on July 22nd. The first single "Stand" hits radio airwaves this month and can be heard on the bands' myspace page. Candlebox is hitting the road all Summer.

May 5th, 2008 - Seattle, WA: Candlebox make their triumphant return to
the modern music game this summer with their first new record in ten
years. INTO THE SUN will be released July 22nd on Silent Majority Group
in conjunction with Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group.



The original Candlebox songwriting team of singer Kevin Martin and
guitarist Peter Klett along with original drummer Scott Mercado,
reunited shortly before the 2006 Rhino/Warner Brothers retrospective,
Best Of Candlebox was released. Candlebox's 2008 lineup features 3 of
the founding 4 members - Only bass player Bardi Martin has been replaced
by Adam Kury. After being apart for more than 7 years, Martin and Klett
discovered that the time and tide apart had nurtured enhanced chemistry
and mutual personal evolution that has now manifested in a cache of new
songs that leave their past works, for lack of a better phrase, far
behind.



INTO THE SUN was produced by Ron Aniello (Barenaked Ladies, Lifehouse)
engineered by Cliff Norrell (REM, Henry Rollins) & mixed by Norrell and
Mike Shipley (Nickelback, Def Leppard). Kevin Martin (Vocals) and Peter
Klett (Guitar) Scott Mercado (DRUMS) and Adam Kury (BASS) have come
together to make a bold, eclectic mix of rhythms and textures that will
make long-time Candlebox fans mouth's water and has the potential to
vault this band back into the national spotlight. Remember, this is a
band that's sold over Six Million albums in the US alone.



INTO THE SUN Confirmed Tracklisting:

1. Stand
2. Bitches Brewin
3. Surrendering
4. Into The Sun
5. Underneath It All
6. Miss You
7. How Does It Feel
8. A Kiss Before The Dying
9. Breathe Intro
10. Breathe Me In
11. Lover Come Back To Me
12. Consider Us

"Stand," the first single off Into The Sun, goes to active and rock
radio in May and is currently streaming on the bands MySpace page,
www.myspace.com/candlebox - If you think radio programmers have
forgotten about Candlebox, think again. Candlebox is as permanently
entrenched on rock radio playlists as a Nirvana or a Pearl Jam. Check
out these airplay stats pulled from Mediabase this week that prove that
Candlebox hits like "Far Behind" and "You" are still extremely relevant
in 2008:



91% of the Mainstream Rock Panel , 80% of the Active Rock Panel and 65%
of the Alternative Rock Panel have played "Far Behind" in the last week

Over 120 rock stations have played "Far Behind" in the last week



71% of the Active Rock Panel, 65% of the Mainstream Rock Panel and 36%
of the Alternative Rock Panel have played "You" in the last week

Over 90 rock stations have played "You" in the last week



Stations like DC101 Washington DC, WYSP/WRFF Philly, 97X & WXTB Tampa,

WKLS Atlanta, Buzz Houston, 98ROCK Baltimore, KQRC KC, KISW Seattle

are still playing tracks 1-2 times a day



Over 180 stations in multiple formats have played Far Behind in the past
week.



Statements from Candlebox band members:



Kevin Martin, Vocals:

"I really feel this is our best work to date, seemed like old times in
the studio and I really enjoyed making this record. When we started
writing the songs for this record back in '07 I think we all felt like
we were on to something special. I think you can hear that in the songs,
they just speak to you like an old friend you haven't seen in years but
are so happy to be able to catch up with."



Peter Klett, Guitar:

"Making this record reminded me of the first album - we didn't feel that
we needed to find the sound, it was there and the goal was to capture it
in the recording. I feel we did that and more...it was nice to end up
with some live, off the cuff, recordings such as the intro to
breathe....it was one of those moments that just happens...all of us in
the same room feeding off one another....very exciting to feel that
again."



Scott Mercado, Drums:

"Without a doubt, Candlebox fans are the most loyal and greatest fans in
the whole world. I can't wait to hear what they think!"
