The highly anticipated 7th album from Candlebox!
Throw out any preconceived notions about who Candlebox are. Wolves, the bands seventh album, is rife with brutal lyrical honesty and songs that run the gamut from dirty rock stompers to timeless, radio-ready pop-rock tunes. Wolves captures the live energy of a band embracing all its influences and coalescing them down into the most potent form. "These are songs that I love that the band loved. We didn't stop ourselves from recording anything if we dug it; we allowed each song to dictate to us what it needed musically, instrumentally," explains singer Kevin Martin. Wolves is a modern rock album that also contains "that really sparkly acoustic, Radiohead kind of dreamy guitar and ethereal stuff; we pulled from everything that inspired us, from Neil Young to brand-new bands."
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 Cornells older brother. As for the vibe: Martin knew he "wanted that song to feel and sound like Black Rebel Motorcycle Club."
Now comes the focus track "My Weakness. The pop-tastic gem is "kind of guttural and like The Summer of 69 and Bruce Springsteen tunes; its one of those love songs where you can feel the band just wants to take off with you the whole time." Reminiscent of chart-topping 80s pop-rock that has stood the test of time, Martin knows that "My Weakness may be perceived as a departure for Candlebox. But thats the point. Martin adds, "Its a love song about a guy longing for a girl.
