Love Stories & Other Musings, the fifth studio album from Candlebox (released April 3 on AudioNest/Fontana/Universal), evidences a newfound level of maturity for the band, formed in 1991 in Seattle. At the same time, listening to it with the volume knob cranked up emphatically reveals that frontman Kevin Martin, lead guitarist Peter Klett, drummer Scott Mercado, and their bandmates, remain filled with the youthful exuberance that marked their first go-round in the 1990s, a decade during which they ran off a string of alt-rock classics while selling north of 5 million albums.

“At a time when it’s more difficult than ever for bands to find their niche, it’s nice to have more than 20 years of history as a band to draw on,” says Martin. “We don’t have to find our footing-it’s been there the whole time. We’re rebuilding the style and structure of the band, not to reinvent ourselves but, thanks to our growth and the accessibility of the music we’ve been making during the last couple of years, to allow ourselves to reach a new audience.”

    I danced to my first 8th grade mixer with a girl named Melanie at Waluga to this band. Glowing Soul was the song…i think. If I win, it will transport me back to an awkward where-do-i-put-my-sweaty-palms night. C’mon do the right thing here!

    Candlebox has been a fav band of mine since my teens. I can’t believe I have never seen them in concert, so pumped they got back together. Their first album is a masterpiece and I can’t wait to hear those guitar solo’s live at my first show at the Crystal Ballroom!

    CANDLEBOX?! They’ve been on my bucket list of concerts since I was a kid! Kevin Martin has the vocals of a god! Candlebox inspired me to write my first songs as an independent writer. It would be fantastic to hear them, meet them, and be a part of their anniversary celebration!

    I want Candlebox tickets because I am a fan who is very new to Portland and trying to make a few friends! What better way to do that than a concert where I will have a common interest with everyone there?

    I love these guys!! I have a few buddies back home in Ohio who have awesome bands and they have played several times with Candlebox. I have been feeling a bit homesick lately and going to Candlebox would help some of the missing home.

    I’ve gone to 2 Candlebox concerts and have yet to see them play. The first was at Rockfest long long ago, my boyfriend was being a drunk idiot and we left early. Then a couple years later me and a friend went to see them at the Big Stink (I think….maybe Rockfest again) both concerts in Estacada. I got heat stroke and once again had to leave before they took the stage. Now that I’m in my 40’s I can only hope I can stay up past 9 and finally see one of my favorite bands!!

    Oh my gawd! I remember seeing Candlebox at the Roseland back in college. One of my favorite early/mid 90’s bands and the best show I’d seen at the time. Would loooove to see them again. I talk about them all the time!

    It’s for you
    Only you
    It’s for you
