Far Behind: The History of CandleboxDespite the thriving music scene in early '90s Seattle, Candlebox was often overlooked by many critics and fans. Formed in 1990, the band regularly performed at some of the city's top clubs, including the former RKCNDY venue. During that time, it started to build up a solid fanbase. Candlebox's eight-song EP caught the attention of talent agents from Maverick Records. The band signed with the label and would release its self-titled debut in 1993. Candlebox peaked at No. 7 on Billboard's album charts and sold more than four million copies. The album featured many hit songs, including "Change," "Far Behind," "You" and "Cover Me." In July 1993, "Far Behind" entered Billboard's Top 20 at the No. 18 position, and it would stay on the charts until the beginning of 1994. The continuous airplay on television and radio gained the band a coveted main stage spot at Woodstock '94. They were considered the forerunners in the post-grunge scene. Metal Edge Magazine awarded Candlebox the Readers' Choice Award for Best New Band in 1994. Candlebox released their follow-up album, Lucy, on October 3, 1995. While the album was certified gold, the band did not see the early success like the previous album. Candlebox disbanded in 2000, but they quickly reformed in 2006 and have released several albums since that time.
