Candlebox~Wednesday, September 13 @Daily’s Place Amphitheater With 3 Doors Down

Los Angeles, CA – August 16, 2023 – As they prepare to release their final studio album, The Long Goodbye, next week, multi-platinum selling Seattle rock band Candlebox has released another offering from the collection with their new single “What Do You Need” featuring Mona. The new track, co-written by Nick Brown of the alt-rock band Mona, is a sneering statement of independence.  PRESS HEREto listen to “What Do You Need,” which first premiered on Consequence/Heavy Consequence,who noted, “The song is structured around a strutting riff and sees Candlebox indulging their hard rock and blues influences.” Out next Friday, August 25th via Round Hill Records, The Long Goodbye, Candlebox’s eighth studio album, also features the hard-hitting lead single “Punks.” PRESS HERE to pre-order/pre-save The Long Goodbye; all digital pre-saves include an instant download of “Punks” and “What Do You Need.” 

“‘What Do You Need’ was a blast to record,” shares front man and songwriter Kevin Martin.  “Working with Nick Brown from Mona on the lyrics was an incredible experience. There is so much  life in this song; I love how trashy and stomping this song is. It has all the best of Candlebox in it and  Don Miggs’ production on this track is absolutely perfect and gives it everything it was looking for. I  love this song!”  

Celebrating 30 years of success, Candlebox, whose power anthems “Far Behind,”“You” and “Cover  Me” off their 1993 debut, self-titled album exploded onto the charts, is capping off their long and influential career with The Long Goodbye. The new 10-track collection, produced by Don Miggs, finds the group taking stock of evolving maturity, fleeting time, and lasting love, all while kicking a lot of ass.  

Candlebox Kevin Martin (lead vocals), Adam Kury (bass), Brian Quinn (guitar), Island Styles (guitar), BJ Kerwin (drums) – is currently in the middle of their farewell tour, crossing the country until early fall with fellow rockers 3 Doors Down as direct support on their massive Away the Sun amphitheater tour in addition to various headlining shows.
