Matchbox Twenty promotes "North" with stateside run
Fresh off the Australian tour trail with INXS, pop-rockers Matchbox Twenty have revealed plans for a North American leg in the New Year behind the recently released "North."
The established quartet, helmed by Rob Thomas, will kick off the latest journey Jan. 29 in Catoosa, OK. The two-month trek crisscrosses the continent, venturing through 38 major market from coast to coast before wrapping up March 30 in Indio, CA.
Ticketing information for the tour can be found at the band's website.
Matchbox Twenty unleashed "North," the outfit's fourth studio effort, in September via Atlantic Records. Produced by Matt Serletic, the 12-track set marks the group's first new material since 2002's "More Than You Think You Are."
Drummer Paul Doucette talked to SoundSpike last month about the new album and how the band came up with the name.
"There's a saying, 'If you're lost find out where North is, and you can figure out where you're going.' We had to figure out where our "North" was. The record is pretty much the representation of where our 'North' was."
The brand-new collection debuted at the top of The Billboard 200, selling 95,000 copies its first week in stores.
