Tuesday 4pm ET: Feature Artist – Matchbox Twenty

Matchbox Twenty (previously Matchbox 20) is an American rock band, formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995. The group currently consists of Rob Thomas (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Brian Yale (bass guitar), Paul Doucette (drums, rhythm guitar, backing vocals), and Kyle Cook (lead guitar, vocals).

Matchbox Twenty rose to international fame with their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You (1996), which was certified 12× Platinum (diamond) in the United States and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. Their second album, Mad Season, released in 2000, charted in the top three on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4× Platinum in the United States. Their third album, More Than You Think You Are, released in 2002, was only certified 2× Platinum in the United States, despite its singles receiving significant airplay.

The band then went on hiatus in 2004 after rhythm guitarist Adam Gaynor’s departure. As a result, Paul Doucette took over rhythm guitar when the band reunited in 2007. They released a compilation album, Exile on Mainstream, which was certified Gold in the United States. After the release, the band toured to support it. Matchbox Twenty then took another hiatus while Rob Thomas embarked on a successful solo career but reunited again in 2010. On September 4, 2012, the band released their fourth studio album, North, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200.

Wednesday 12am ET: Feature LP: Matchbox Twenty – Exile On Mainstream (2007)

Exile on Mainstream is the first compilation album by American rock band Matchbox Twenty featuring seven new songs that emerged from a 12-song recording session in L.A., produced by Steve Lillywhite, and 11 greatest hits songs. The album was released on October 2, 2007, exactly 11 years and one day since the release of the band’s debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You. Paul Doucette, originally the band’s drummer, played rhythm guitar due to Adam Gaynor’s departure. The album’s title is a reference to the Rolling Stones’ Exile on Main St. (the track “Disease” was co-written with Mick Jagger).

All seven of the new songs on the album were credited to the members of Matchbox Twenty, a first for the group. Prior to this, the songs either were credited to Rob Thomas himself or co-written with various members of the band.

The album was available for pre-order on September 4, 2007 from iTunes. The full album was released on VH1’s “The Leak” one week prior to release. It leaked onto the Internet on September 28, 2007, four days ahead of the official release date. The album debuted on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart on October 8, 2007 at number-one with sales of 18,199 units. In the U.S., the album debuted at number-three on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 131,000 copies in its first week. The album was released in a USB wristband format as well as the 2-CD edition making Matchbox Twenty the first band to do so.

The first single, “How Far We’ve Come”, was released on July 16, 2007, and charted in the top 10 in Australia and in the top 20 in the United States. Paul Doucette announced in mid-October that “These Hard Times” would be released as the album’s second single in early 2008. In Australia, “All Your Reasons” was released as the second single instead of “These Hard Times”, and the single is available on the Australian iTunes Store.

The album has sold 660,319 copies as of June 7, 2008 and was certified gold in the United States.

matchboxtwentyMatchbox Twenty (originally spelled officially, and still sometimes known as Matchbox 20) is an American pop rock band, formed in Orlando, Florida, in 1995. The group currently comprises Rob Thomas (lead vocals, piano), Paul Doucette (drums, rhythm guitar, backing vocals), Kyle Cook (lead guitar, backing vocals), Brian Yale (bass guitar), and touring drummer Stacy Jones (drums).

Matchbox Twenty rose to international fame with their debut album, Yourself or Someone Like You (1996), which was certified diamond in the United States and multi-platinum in Australia, Canada and New Zealand. Their second album, Mad Season, released in 2000, charted in the top three on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4× platinum in the United States. Their third album, More Than You Think You Are, released in 2002, was certified double platinum in the United States. However, it was not as successful as the previous two albums, despite its singles receiving significant airplay.

The band then went on hiatus in 2004, and rhythm guitarist Adam Gaynor left the band in 2005, after performing on the first three studio albums. As a result, Paul Doucette took over rhythm guitar, and the band reunited and released a compilation album, Exile on Mainstream, in 2007, which was certified gold in the United States. After the release, former Push Stars drummer Ryan MacMillan filled Doucette’s vacated drum spot. During this period, Rob Thomas embarked on a successful solo career. Matchbox Twenty then took another hiatus, but reunited again in 2010. The band released North, their fourth album, on September 4, 2012 which made it its debut at number one on the Billboard 200.
