After a five year wait, Matchbox Twenty is back on the music charts with a new album. "North" was released in September 2012 and showcases the group - Rob Thomas, Paul Doucette, Kyle Cool and Brian Yale - more honed and fine-tuned than ever.
"North" is the group's fourth studio album and their first release to debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart. It's also the group's first set of all-new material in a decade. The 12-song album features the single "She's So Mean" and the songs "Put Your Hands Up," "Our Song," "Overjoyed," "Parade," "English Town" and "I Will."
The group formed in 1996 in Florida and burst onto the music scene in 1996 with their debut album, "Yourself or Someone Like You." It contained five hit singles, including – “Push,” “3 am,” “Real World,” “Long Day” and “Back 2 Good.” The album earned RIAA Diamond Award certification for U.S. sales exceeding more than 12 million to date.Thomas also raised the band's profile by co-writing and singing on Santana's Grammy Award-winning 1999 smash “Smooth.” Matchbox Twenty maintained the momentum with "Mad Season" in 2000 and "More Than You Think You Are" in 2002, both of which went multiplatinum and continued to produce hits such as “Bent,” “Unwell,” “If You're Gone,” “Bright Lights” and “Disease.”
After their third album, the group took a break from touring and recording. They reunited for the 2007 released "Exile on Mainstream." The album was a greatest hits collection that featured six new tracks, which were co-written by the band for the first time ever and included their biggest selling single to date “How Far We’ve Come.”
So far the group has sold more then 30 million records worldwide and has earned countless awards. Some of their accolades include five Grammy nominations, four American Music Award nods and the 2004 People’s Choice Award for Favorite Musical Group.
In addition to this, Thomas has proved himself as one of the most highly-decorated artists of recent years, receiving three Grammy Awards, 11 BMI Awards and two Billboard Songwriter of the Year honors for both his chart-topping solo work, as well as collaborations with such legends as Santana, Mick Jagger, Willie Nelson and Big Boi.
