For more information, visit STGPresents.org.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."
