Now theyve triumphantly returned to a music scene where alt-rock is a meaningless label.
So says singer and frontman for the currently touring Seattle band, Kevin Martin.
He claims that the guys in Candlebox never considered themselves a so-called alternative band, explaining they only referred to their music as plain old rock.
In Martins words, The only people in our camp that worried about what to call us was the record company, Maverick.
He adds that because alt-rock has been so thoroughly integrated into the mainstream over the past decade, its set up a perfect environment for his own bands comeback.
The irony, he says, is that most fans dont know he has always been a huge punk rock fan, explaining hes followed punk ever since his first concert, which was an amazing Black Flag, Dead Kennedys show.
