3 Doors Down Confirm New Album And UK Shows

3 Doors Down, the Southern US chart-toppers with 16 million album sales to their name, will release their new/fifth studio album on July 18th via Spinefarm Records.

The follow-up to 2008’s self-titled outing, a US No. 1, ‘Time Of My Life’ has been produced by the Grammy-nominated Howard Benson and features 12 brand new compositions, including first single/video ‘When You’re Young’, released earlier this year via Spinefarm Records.

Says vocalist Brad Arnold:-

“This new album’s not as mainstream as our last one; this time, it was about making some artistic strides and creating a record we can stand behind. I really poured myself into the process and Howard pushes you to be better than you think you are…”

The band – completed by Matt Roberts (guitar/vocals), Todd Harrell (bass), Chris Henderson (guitar) & Greg Upchurch (drums/percussion) – first came together back in 1996, since which time they have enjoyed seven Number One chart hits in the US plus a dozen Top 10 chart positions, with Top 3 smash ‘Kryptonite’ (2000) effectively proving the ‘breakout’ release.

The five return to the UK in June for a concentrated run of UK shows:-

June 2011
16th – Academy, Manchester
17th – Academy, Glasgow
19th – Roundhouse, London
20th – 02 Academy, Birmingham

‘Time Of My Life’ will initially be released as a limited edition CD featuring acoustic versions of a number of tracks on the album.
