It's a miraculous yet familiar tale...Group of friends form a band, work their asses off gigging around town, cut some demos, secure a recording contract, write a hit or two, emerge from local obscurity to global touring and sales success, hit a creative and interpersonal wall, disband, wander in individual obscurity for a few years, get back together, older, wiser, and produces the best effort of their career and does it all over again.
In this brave new, fiercely competitive world of evaporating record companies, digital downloads and MySpace-created rock stars, when artists are given a rare second chance, they know they must rise to the occasion. Candlebox disappeared but they have most definitely returned and this time, it's not the scene or the culture or the media doing the talking. It's the music. And that is miraculous.
"Candlelight Red" deliver hard edged yet melodic, powerful
and emotion driven music. Hailing from central PA, the band has completed their first full length cd with Grammy Nominated Producer "David Ivory" and will soon be hitting the road on a spring/summer tour (dates to be announced).
CLR beat out over 10,000 other bands to win the 2010 national Guitar Center "Onstage" contest which landed them an opening slot for "KISS". The band was chosen from among twenty two regional contest winners by none other than Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley of KISS. CLR had the honor of opening a show for KISS in Pittsburgh later in 2010.
Candlelight Red followed up the Guitar Center contest victory and their exploding regional buzz by inking a record deal with Imagen Records in late 2010. The band had also recently opened up for Buckcherry, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Hellyeah, The Damned Things, Tantric and others. They just finished up a 30 day tour with Egypt Central and are slated to tour with Saving Abel into October.Their upcoming cd is scheduled to be released in July.
