Candlebox - Vexatious

The American rock band CANDLEBOX, from Seattle, Washington, is one of the influential rock band from the powerful '90s Seattle music movement, returns with its long-overdue sixth album, "Disappearing In Airports", on April 22.

CANDLEBOX was the first successful act on MADONNAs Maverick Records, which went on to sign ALANIS MORISSETTE, DEFTONES and THE PRODIGY. They found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album in July 1993. It featured some of the band's biggest hit singles, including "Far Behind" and "You", and was certified platinum by the RIAA four times. Their next two albums, Lucy and Happy Pills, also sold well. After troubles with Maverick, CANDLEBOX went on indefinite hiatus in 2000 after an alleged attempt to be freed from their contract. The band reunited in 2006, and two years later, they released their fourth album "Into the Sun", followed by an extensive tour. Their latest album, "Love Stories & Other Musings", was released in April 2012.

The band has toured or played selected shows with such bands as LIVING COLOUR, THE FLAMING LIPS, OUR LADY PEACE, RUSH, HENRY ROLLINS, AEROSMITH, GODSMACK, METALLICA, RADIOHEAD, THE OFFSPRING, SPONGE, SEAWEED, HINDER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and DANZIG. They were also a featured band on the main-stage at Woodstock '94 and made repeat live performances on Late Show with David Letterman.

For "Disappearing In Airports", the band worked with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (AUGUST BURNS RED, EVERCLEAR, RIVERS OF NIHIL), cutting the record at Think Loud Studios in York, Pennsylvania. With Martin, Dave Krusen on drums, Adam Kury on bass and the addition of guitarists Mike Leslie and Brian Quinn, the recommitment to creating music that is "pissed and urgent" as well as bringing a new energy to the live show is at this record's core.

Today's tune "Vexatious" is the first single taken from the upcoming album "Disappearing In Airports" (out April 22, 2016), the Video is created by Rob Neilson

"'Vexatious' is about the social networking-obsessed, unlimited bragging rights society we live in, where people come off as entitled yet so insecure," says frontman Kevin Martin. "Whether it's a pop star feuding senselessly with another pop star, or people who can't help but to take 50 different selfies in under a minute missing everything that's happening around them, it's a sad commentary on life that we can't escape. Dating apps, bitching apps, secret sharing apps, apps apps apps — they all operate outside of any real or authentic human connection. It's disconnect everywhere and it's destroying us. No one cares what anyone else thinks or feels. It's all 'me, me, me' and, if you ask me, it's fucking sad."
