Songs You Know and Love

You undoubtedly are familiar with "Far Behind" and "You," two of Candlebox's most well-known songs. The band performed for several years before taking a break from touring in 2000. It was in 2006 that Candlebox hit the road again to perform live and in 2008 the band released Into the Sun, and then Love Stories and Other Musings in 2012. The band's seventh studio album Wolves will change everything you think you know about the band.

In a press release, they say,

Candlebox teased the upcoming LP in August 2020, releasing Wolves’ energized “Let Me Down Easy,” an aggro, blues-based rocker with a booming bass and edgy guitar riffing. The cut was co-written with old Seattle pal Peter Cornell, Chris Cornell’s older brother. As for the vibe: Martin knew he “wanted that song to feel and sound like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.”

The first official single from Wolves is “All Down Hill From Here,” co-written with Christopher Thorne of Blind Melon, another old friend of Martin’s. In the frank autobiographical tune, Martin sings, “Spent half of my life in a rock and roll band … They say ‘the harder they come, the harder they fall’ / Well I hit it pretty hard babe, still reelin’ from it all /And I made it to the peak babe, but it’s all downhill from here now.”
