Candlebox is an American alternative rock band from Seattle, Washington. Since their debut, the group has released four studio albums, which have achieved multi-platinum and gold certification, as well as numerous charting singles, a compilation, and a CD+DVD.

The band has toured with such bands as Living Colour, The Flaming Lips, Our Lady Peace, Rush, Henry Rollins, Aerosmith, Godsmack, and Metallica. They were also a featured band on the main-stage at Woodstock '94 and made repeat live performances on Late Show with David Letterman.

Candlebox was the first successful act on Madonna's Maverick Records, which went on to sign Alanis Morissette, Deftones, and The Prodigy. After troubles with the label, however, Candlebox went on hiatus in 2000 after an alleged attempt to be freed from their contract. The band reunited in 2006, releasing their first studio album in 10 years and touring extensively.
