CD Review: Candlebox Return Refreshed With New Album "Disappearing In Airports"

American rock band Candlebox are returning after four years with their new studio album titled "Disappearing In Airports." The band's rise to fame came swift as their self-titled debut album hit #7 on the album charts and has since gone 4x platinum. In 2000, Candlebox went on hiatus as band members went their separate ways to pursue other musical endeavors. The band reunited in 2006 to tour behind a greatest hits compilation, which led them to record a new album in 2008. Since then, Candlebox has mixed in touring and new albums with their busy personal lives, but are ready to put their all into this latest release.
The new ten song release begins with "Only Because Of You," which starts the album with a pop/rock sound that is a far distance from their hard rock debut album. They pick the tempo and the intensity up with "Vexatious," before returning to their roots on the funk-like, arena rock of "Supernova." Lead singer Kevin Martin opens up his vocal pipes for the powerful delivery of "Alive At Last" then brings the band along to release his anger for "I've Got A Gun," which should please long-time fans with its hard-edged sound. The album finishes with the power ballad "Spotlights" and the punk-like energy of "God's Gift." 
Candlebox is currently on the road, promoting the new album with shows running through May, including a stop at the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun. To find out more about their new album "Disappearing In Airports," please visit
