RIDGEFIELD, Conn. – Seattle alternative rock band Candlebox will bring a special acoustic performance to The Ridgefield Playhouse at 8 p.m. Wednesday.

Formed in 1990, Candlebox has sold more than 8 million albums worldwide and are considered one of the greatest American rock bands of that time. The band found immediate success with the release of a self-titled debut album in July 1993. It featured some of the band’s biggest hit singles, including "Far Behind," "You" and “Cover Me” and was certified platinum four times by the RIAA. Two more successful albums, “Lucy” and “Happy Pills,” followed and Candlebox toured relentlessly until 2000 when it went on an indefinite hiatus.

The band reunited in 2006, and two years later, released its fourth album, “Into the Sun,” followed by an extensive tour. Its latest album, “Love Stories & Other Musings,” was released in April 2012.

Candlebox is currently hard at work on a new album, which is set for release on March 11.
