Candlebox Reveal New Single ‘Vexatious’ + 2016 U.S. Tour
Candlebox will be releasing Disappearing From Airports, their sixth studio effort and third since reforming, on April 22 through Pavement Entertainment. The record will serve as the successor to 2012's Love Stories and Other Musings and the band has served up the first single, "Vexatious," which can be heard in the video above. The group will also be embarking on a U.S. tour on April 1.
The song takes a shot at the current age of human interaction backed by a sing-along chorus and a driving rhythm from drummer Dave Krusen. Frontman Kevin Martin commented on the single, stating, "'Vexatious' is about the social networking-obsessed, unlimited bragging rights society we live in, where people come off as entitled yet so insecure. Whether it's a pop star feuding senselessly with another pop star, or people who can't help but to take 50 different selfies in under a minute missing everything that's happening around them, it's a sad commentary on life that we can't escape. Dating apps, bitching apps, secret sharing apps, apps, apps, apps-they all operate outside of any real or authentic human connection. It's disconnect everywhere and it's destroying us. No one cares what anyone else thinks or feels. It's all 'me, me, me' and, if you ask me, it's f--king sad."
"I want to take Candlebox into a new world, and this record is very different, very diverse for us. It's about growth and pushing the band in the direction for a new audience," Martin said of Disappearing From Airports on the whole. Candlebox will hit the road in April, kicking things off in Louisville, Ky. on the first day of the month, wrapping it up over a month later on May 7 in Marietta, Ohio. Support on the trek will come from Pete RG.
Pre-orders for Disappearing From Airports can be placed at iTunes.
