Candlebox Launches Music Video For New Single “Vexatious”


Candlebox, the influential, multi-platinum rock band from the powerful ’90s Seattle music movement, has launched a music video for the new single “Vexatious,” taken from the band’s upcoming sixth studio album Disappearing in Airports. Stream the “Vexatious” music video on YouTube at this location >.

“‘Vexatious’ is about the social networking-obsessed, unlimited bragging rights society we live in, where people come off as entitled yet so insecure,” commented Candlebox founder and frontman Kevin Martin. “Whether it’s a pop star feuding senselessly with another pop star, or people who can’t help but to take 50 different selfies in under a minute missing everything that’s happening around them, it’s a sad commentary on life that we can’t escape. Dating apps, bitching apps, secret sharing apps, apps, apps, apps-they all operate outside of any real or authentic human connection. It’s disconnect everywhere and it’s destroying us. No one cares what anyone else thinks or feels. It’s all ‘me, me, me’ and, if you ask me, it’s fucking sad.”

Disappearing in Airports will release on April 22 via Pavement Entertainment. It will be available on all digital platforms (iTunes, Amazon, YouTube Red, Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music) and distributed by MRI/Sony RED. iTunes pre-orders are live now at: with Instant Gratification downloads of “Vexatious,” “Supernova,” “I’ve Got a Gun” and “Keep on Waiting.”

Disappearing in Airports showcases the group’s introspective and poetically candid songwriting with its signature musical immediacy. Candlebox worked with producers Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Everclear, Rivers of Nihil), cutting the record at Think Loud Studios in York, Penn. With vocalist Kevin Martin, Dave Krusen on drums, Adam Kury on bass and the addition of guitarists Mike Leslie and Brian Quinn, the recommitment to creating music that is ‘pissed and urgent’ as well as bringing a new energy to the live show is at this record’s core.

“I want to take Candlebox into a new world, and this record is very different, very diverse for us,” said Kevin Martin. “It’s about growth and pushing the band in the direction for a new audience.”
