Matchbox Twenty Debuts at #1

Matchbox Twenty NorthMatchbox Twenty’s done something they’ve never accomplished before – the group scored a #1 spot on Billboard’s Top 200 list for the first time in their career with North. “To be a band that put out our first album in 1996, and have our first #1 in 2012 feels like we are doing something right,” said frontman Rob Thomas.
North also made the #1 spot on the Australian album chart, which works out perfectly as Matchbox Twenty will be kicking off an Australian arena tour on October 20th. They’ll also be performing at two upcoming sold-out shows in London on September 18th and 19th.
The group continues to be busy doing publicity in support of the album’s release, heading to the Ellen DeGeneres Show on October 2nd. Before that, Rob Thomas and Kyle Cook will appear on VH1’s Top 20 Countdown on September 15th. Matchbox Twenty also revamped their website, making it easier for fans to scroll through all their hits with a new interactive “North Spotify Timeline.”
The first single off of North is “She’s So Mean” and the official music video already has over 1.9 million views.
