CANDLEBOX Announces Fall 2021 U.S. Tour

CANDLEBOX Announces Fall 2021 U.S. Tour

Long-running Seattle rockers CANDLEBOX have announced a U.S. tour in support of their upcoming album, "Wolves". With COVID-19 restrictions lifting, the band is happy to return to normalcy. The tour kicks off in Louisville, Kentucky on August 5 and runs until November 6, ending in CANDLEBOX's hometown of Seattle. The final two Seattle shows on November 5 and November 6 will both feature CANDLEBOX's original lineup. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10 a.m. PST.

"Wolves" is CANDLEBOX's seventh studio album and drops worldwide on September 17, 2021 on Pavement Entertainment. The album will be available on all formats (CD, vinyl, and through digital outlets). "Wolves" embraces a fresh modernity in terms of sound and explores new territory. Vocalist Kevin Martin says: "We didn't stray away from anything; if the song sounded Americana, we went there; if a song sounded progressive, we went progressive — we didn't try to stay in our lane, if you will." The band is thrilled with their results and invites fans, both new and old, along for the ride.

Two songs from "Wolves", "Let Me Down Easy" and "My Weakness", are available to stream now. "Let Me Down Easy" is an aggro, blues-based rocker with a booming bass and edgy guitar riffing, co-written with old Seattle pal Peter Cornell, Chris Cornell's older brother. "My Weakness" is a love song that melds the honesty of Bryan Adams's "Summer Of 69" and passion of Bruce Springsteen's "Born To Run".
