DAUGHTRY Returns With New Song 'Backbone'; Fifth Album Coming Soon
March 31, 2018
Grammy-nominated rock band DAUGHTRY has unveiled a brand new song titled "Backbone". Notably, the track marks the group's first new original music since the release of the 2016 greatest-hits collection "It's Not Over…The Hits So Far".
With its swaggering riff and soulful chant — "Ya gotta show a little backbone" — this anthem heralds the arrival of the band's anxiously awaited fifth full-length album due out later this year. Additionally, it paves the way for the first official single coming very soon.
About "Backbone", frontman Chris Daughtry commented: "This is just a little something to get everyone ready for the record. It's been so long since we gave you new music that it only felt right to drop something fresh. We've put a lot into this music, and we can't wait to share what's to come."
Right now, the boys have been playing the track on their headlining North American tour joined by SINCLAIR as support.
DAUGHTRY has released four studio albums, scored four No. 1 hits and garnered four Grammy nominations. Additionally, the band has sold over eight million albums and 16 million singles, as well as selling out concerts around the globe. At radio, the band has also earned four No. 1 singles, including the mulit-format hit No. 1 song "It's Not Over". DAUGHTRY's self-titled album was the fastest-selling rock debut in SoundScan history, and its follow-up, "Leave This Town", marked the quintet's second consecutive No. 1 album. The band's third album, "Break The Spell", was certified gold within four weeks of its release, and their last studio effort, "Baptized", produced the certified-gold single "Waiting For Superman".
