Their latest release, “Dark Before Dawn,” was released on June 24, 2015 and debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and spun off two No. 1 rock tracks, “Failure” and “Angels Fall.” “Failure” was also named the most played song on Active Rock for 2015.
“We Are Not Alone” spawned a pair of No. 1 radio hits (“So Cold” and “Sooner or Later”) and sold 2.3 million units (albums and digital tracks). “Phobia debuted” at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top 200, hit No. 1 on the Rock Album Chart, and was one of the Top 50 selling rock albums of 2006. It featured one No. 1 and two top 5 rock radio hits (“Breath,” “Diary of Jane,” and “Until The End”) and sold 2.8 million units.
2009’s “Dear Agony” debuted No. 4 on the Billboard Top 200 chart on one of the busiest release days of the year and No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. “Dear Agony” also spun off the platinum-selling and No. 1 song Active Rock single “I Will Not Bow,” where it stayed No. 1 for five weeks straight while the album itself was certified gold, selling over 500,000 copies.
