Top Hits: THE REASON, OUT OF CONTROL, CRAWLING IN THE DARK
Hoobastank Booking Profile
American rock band Hoobastank is best known for their hit “The Reason”, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2004. They were signed to Island Records from 2001 to 2012 and have released five albums and one extended play to date. Their fifth studio album, Fight or Flight, was released in September 2012, and they have sold 10 million albums worldwide. While the heavy alternative sounds of acts like Tool and Alice in Chains were primary influences, Hoobastank tempered the gloomier elements of that music with a suburban California groove and an eye for accessibility. Hoobastank’s eponymous debut dropped in November 2001, and the singles “Crawling in the Dark” and “Running Away” were hits at radio and MTV. The LP went gold, and the quartet supported it with a jaunt through Asia and Europe that summer. The quartet offered the lead single “Out of Control” as a free download from its website before releasing the full-length The Reason at the end of the year. Although it showcased a harder-edged vocal performance from Robb, the album’s biggest hit was its title track, an emotive ballad that topped the rock charts and peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100. Their 2006 Every Man for Himself went gold in one month, a feat that likely owed its success to the band’s previous album. A new single “My Turn” appeared in October 2008, followed by the arrival of Fornever in 2009. That same year, the band announced that they had begun work on an acoustic album. The result was Is This the Day?, which featured acoustic versions of songs from throughout the bands catalog. The album was released in Korea and Japan in 2010, and saw a stateside release in 2011.
