American rock band Candlebox will take the Hard Rock Event Center stage in Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa on Thursday, May 19, at 8 p.m.
From Seattle, Washington, Candlebox has released seven studio albums, several charting singles, a compilation, and a CD+DVD.
Candlebox found immediate success with the release of its self-titled debut album in July 1993. It featured four singles: “Change,” “You,” “Far Behind,” and “Cover Me.” “Far Behind” reached the top 20, and the album was certified quadruple platinum by the RIAA.
The band’s next album, Lucy (1995), was certified gold, and was followed three years later by Happy Pills (1998). After troubles with its record company, Candlebox broke up in 2000, but the band reunited in 2006 and they have since released four more studio albums: Into the Sun (2008), Love Stories & Other Musings (2012), Disappearing in Airports (2016), and Wolves (2021).
Candlebox’s musical style, while predominately hard rock, has a wide range of influences. Some of the band’s songs have strong references to blues, grunge, and rock. The band’s music is considered contemporary.
