Candlebox Premiere New Song “My Weakness”

Candlebox have premiered a new song titled “My Weakness.” This track is from the band’s new album “Wolves,” which will be released on September 17.

Kevin Martin said the following about the new song:

“The song is kind of guttural and like ‘The Summer Of ’69’ and Bruce Springsteen tunes; it’s one of those love songs where you can feel the band just wants to take off with you the whole time.”

He also added the following about the new album:

“It comes from where we are as humans right now, and what we’ve become. Yes, there’s beauty in these wolves, but there’s the pack mentality, and that lone wolf mentality on the other side.”

“Wolves” Track Listing:

01. “All Down Hill From Here”
02. “Let Me Down Easy”
03. “Riptide”
04. “Sunshine”
05. “My Weakness”
06. “We”
07. “Nothing Left To Lose”
08. “Lost Angeline”
09. “Trip”
10. “Don’t Count Me Out”
11. “Criminals”

Candlebox Premiere New Song “Let Me Down Easy”

Candlebox have premiered a new song titled “Let Me Down Easy.” This track is from the band’s upcoming album, which will be released in 2021.

Kevin Martin commented:

“We’re all sinners. Ain’t a saint amongst us, and you can only hope that when your time comes it’s not a struggle, that maybe you might be lucky enough to be forgiven for your sins and allowed into the gates of heaven because you are aware — that is… if that’s what you believe in.”

“Peter Cornell and I had been chatting about doing something together and he sent me the song. I really loved writing this one with Peter. He’s incredibly talented and has an innate ability to produce something that is easy to sing to… I really loved this process with him. I think it’s an amazing song. We put it together as a full band in pre-production pretty quickly because it was so well-structured, which in turn allowed/inspired me to write the lyrics.”

Candlebox Share Cover Of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth”

Candlebox have shared a cover of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth.” The track is expected to serve as the first installment in a series of protest covers. Frontman Kevin Martin commented:

“In these times of uncertainty, it’s important that we take care of one another. We had a blast recording this song and can’t wait to do more and get music out to our fans.”

Candlebox To Play Benefit For Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation

Candlebox have announced that they will be playing a special benefit show for Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation on May 19 at BLK Live in Scottsdale, AZ. Proceeds will go towards the Rock Teen Center. Kevin Martin commented:

“This is a cause that is very close to my heart. With music and arts programs being cut from our schools it’s now more important than ever to have organizations like Alice’s to make sure that our kids get the opportunity to experience these things. Who knows where I would have wound up if it weren’t for music? I think most musicians out there would agree.”

Original Candlebox Lineup To Perform Debut Album In Full At Special Seattle, WA Show

Candlebox’s original lineup, featuring Peter Klett, Bardi Martin, Kevin Martin, and Scott Mercado, will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of their self-titled debut album by performing it in full at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, WA on July 21. The band will also be joined by special guests SweetWater and Green Apple Quick Step.

Kevin Martin said the following:

“I can’t believe its been 25 years, it seems like yesterday we were playing the 1st of 3 sold out shows at the Paramount and to be able to come back 25 years later to that same magical venue to play these songs for our fans is truly overwhelming and humbling. I don’t think any of us ever thought that we had made a record that would have such a profound affect on so many. I mean, we were proud of it of course and we loved what we had created but to think that it was going to reach so many people and that it was still going to be as impactful 25 years later, no way. I think we are all amazed that its 25 years old, very humbling for sure and I couldn’t be more grateful that our fans still love what we do all these years later.”

Klett also commented:

“I’m truly looking forward to getting back together with the guys where it started all those years ago. Playing the songs that literally changed our lives and continue to do so and to be able to play them in the The Paramount with our fans there is going to be amazing!”

Bardi Martin added:

“It is amazing, I mean, if you’d have asked me in 1993 if I thought we’d be playing this album for our fans in 25 years I dont know how i would have responded. I think i would probably have said “I hope so” but really I’m just amazed and cannot wait to celebrate these past 25 years with the guys and the fans!”

Mercado commented as well:

“I’m so stoked to be reuniting with the 3 guys that changed my life immeasurably and presented the most magical moments I’ll ever experience on this Earth. I love these guys and can’t wait to play the songs from the album that catapulted our musical careers.”
