Wolves is Candlebox’s seventh studio album and drops worldwide on September 17, 2021, on Pavement Entertainment. The album will be available on all formats (CD, vinyl, and through digital outlets). Wolves embraces a fresh modernity in terms of sound and explores new territory. Vocalist Kevin Martin says, “We didn’t stray away from anything; if the song sounded Americana, we went there; if a song sounded progressive, we went progressive- we didn’t try to stay in our lane, if you will.” The band is thrilled with their results and invites fans, both new and old, along for the ride.

Two songs from Wolves, “Let Me Down Easy” and “My Weakness,” are available to stream now. “Let Me Down Easy” is an aggro, blues-based rocker with a booming bass and edgy guitar riffing, co-written with old Seattle pal Peter Cornell, Chris Cornell’s older brother. “My Weakness” is a love song that melds the honesty of Bryan Adam’s “Summer of 69” and passion of Springsteen’s “Born to Run.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’ve a confession to make when it comes to Candlebox and that is that I never really kept up with them past the first album and only was able to catch them once in concert way long before I ever jumped into this music media adventure. As a matter of fact that time when I caught them was when the legendary Rush had them as an opener for their “Counterparts” album tour. At the time I was less than enthused despite liking their signature track “You” but I digress. I’d like to catch them and report my findings to the readership and it seems like the best option for me will be at the Prudential Center so let’s see what the scene is like around that time. What do you readers think? Are you someone who has been keeping up with the band for all these years and are excited about one or more of these many dates. This is surely one lengthy tour and that is good to see happening after the last sixteen or so months. Chime in down in the comments section if you have anything topical to add to this notice and I will see you again soon. Stay safe out there.
