Formed in the mid-90’s, the multi-platinum, three-time GRAMMY Award-nominated group HOOBASTANK has five albums under their belt. The band was integral in establishing a global, critical mass in rock and began their career playing gigs in Los Angeles alongside contemporaries Incubus, Linkin Park and others. HOOBASTANK went on to sell over 10 million albums worldwide have released five albums and one EP. Their highly-anticipated sixth studio album, PUSH PULL, will be released on May 25, 2018 (Napalm Records). HOOBASTANK’s landmark self-titled debut album spawned the breakthough hit “Crawling in the Dark” (#68 Billboard Hot 100, #3 Modern Rock, #7 Mainstream Rock, #1 MP3 download chart) while the second single “Running Away” (Billboard Hot 100, #2 Modern Rock, #9 Mainstream Rock, #3 MP3 download chart) was even more successful. The album went platinum and reached # 25 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and #1 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart. World tours and high profile songs for major studio films (The Scorpion King, Daredevil) followed before they entered the studio with producer Howard Benson for their second album The Reason. The title track for The Reason became a worldwide hit, #2 Billboard Hot 100, #1 US and World Modern Rock charts (#10 Australia, #12 UK, #15 Germany), following the first single “Same Direction” (#9 Modern Rock, #16 Mainstream Rock). The album reached #3 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and set a record in Canada, with 21 weeks at #1. The album and song “The Reason” garnered multiple GRAMMY nominations including “Song of the Year,” “Best Rock Album” and “Best Pop Performance” for a Duo or Group and “The Reason” was played during the final episode of the mega hit NBC TV show Friends. HOOBASTANK’s third album Every Man for Himself achieved Gold certification and debuted at #12 on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The group followed with Fornever, a greatest hits album The Greatest Hits: Don’t Touch My Moustache and their first live album Live from the Wiltern as well as a series of singles and soundtrack releases including “We Are One“ Music for Relief in support of the Haiti earthquake crisis. In 2012, they released their fifth album Fight Or Flight which featured the singles “This Is Gonna Hurt,” and “Can You Save Me?”. Due out May 25, 2018, HOOBASTANK—DOUG ROBB (Lead vocals/rhythm guitar), DAN ESTRIN Lead guitar/keyboards), CHRIS HESSE (Drums/percussion/backing vocals), JESSE CHARLAND (bassist/keyboardist/backing vocals)—will release their sixth studio album titled PUSH PULL (Napalm Records). The group teamed with producer Matt Wallace (Faith No More, Deftones, Maroon 5) to exploring both rock and pop songwriting with a renewed vigor. As a result, the 11 songs on PUSH PULL deliver a large-scale, muscular, alternative rock sound combining the best of what brought them here and establishing their presence in the current pop-rock spectrum. Album highlights include title track “Push Pull,” and “More Beautiful,” as well as the go-for-broke “Just Let Go (Who Cares if We Fall),” which sums up HOOBASTANK’s attitude.
Expect the group to launch a worldwide tour soon.
