Artist of the Week: 3 Doors Down


3 Doors Down


With an album coming up and a single already climbing the Hot 100 chart, 3 Doors Down are the apt band to be featured this week.

Riding high on the success of their single "Kryptonite" in 2000 and the years after that plus their consistency in spawning hits after hits, 3 Doors Down are undoubtedly a rock icon that have embedeed their name so deep in the history of rock music. The band are now back in 2008 with their new effort, a self-titled album which will be released on April 20 via Universal Music.

Speaking about the new set, the band's guitarist Chris Henderson explained that their music has been revolutionizing since the last time they spawned an album. "We actually got to sit and work on it, instead of cranking it out," he said. "Over the years, since 1999 pretty much, there's always been some sort of deadline. A deadline for touring, for videos, for this or that. This time we were like, 'You know what? Let's take some time off and let's go back and write without a deadline and see what happens.' So we did that."

In a bid to promote the album, the band have also scheduled an extensive tour together with rock outfits Staind and Hinder. The jaunt will begin July 9 and end September 7, with a total of venues visited around 24 plus.

For years, 3 Doors have been regarded as one of the most prominent alternative rock bands of the early 2000s. They have managed to deliver songs that in the next century will also still be talked and probably covered by many sprouting music acts. Prior to the 2008 album, they have shelved three Top 10 albums and more than ten high-charting hits.
