Original Candlebox Lineup Reunites For 25th Anniversary Show in Seattle

Anyone who read Mark Yarm’s excellent book Everybody Loves Our Town: A Grunge History knows that Candlebox were the redheaded stepchild of the early ’90s music Seattle scene. Sure, Candlebox’s eponymous 1993 record went quadruple platinum, but out-of-towners like Pearl Jam managed to scoop up all the accolades and grunge bona fides while Candlebox was largely regarded by their Seattle peers as the uninspired product of the post-Nirvana record label feeding frenzy.

Perhaps Candlebox can finally claim some of that elusive glory at its July 21 show at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle featuring the band’s original lineup for one night only. The band will perform its 1993 debut album in its entirety, according to Blabbermouth. That being said, if you can tell the original lineup of Candlebox from literally any other lineup of Candlebox, then bless you.
