Multi-platinum, superstar hit making pop-rockers Matchbox Twenty have released Don’t Get Me Wrong, a second track from their highly anticipated fifth studio album Where The Light Goes (arriving May 26th via Atlantic Records). Produced by Gregg Wattenberg with Paul Doucette and Kyle Cook, the album finds the band surging with energy for another great batch of real, relevant, and relatable songs.

“A lot of times, when people have been together for years, you can have arguments that get really heated and keep you on edge. It’s only natural for someone to sometimes think it may be the end. This song was just someone saying, ‘I know I get mad sometimes, but I’m not going anywhere’” – ROB THOMAS

Don’t Get Me Wrong” follows the album’s energetic lead “Wild Dogs (Running in a Slow Dream),” which marked the band’s first new music release in over a decade. Already boasting over 3 million global streams, the single features a vibrant music video directed by Jay Sprogell (watch here), was just performed live the first time on The Kelly Clarkson Show(watch here), and got stripped back for a stunning acoustic rendition (stream here).

The band – Rob ThomasBrian YalePaul Doucette, and Kyle Cook — will be hitting the road this month for their 50+ date spring/summer “Slow Dream Tour.” Produced by Live Nation, the “Slow Dream Tour” will begin on Tuesday, May 16th at Rogers Arena in Vancouver, BC and conclude on Sunday, August 6th at Chicago’s Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre. The outing is the band’s first since 2017’s “A Brief History of Everything” tour which marked the 20th anniversary of their Diamond-certified debut album Yourself or Someone Like YouThe “Slow Dream Tour” will feature support from Platinum-selling singer-songwriter Matt Nathanson for the first half of the tour and chart-topping singer-songwriter/producer Ben Rector on the second half.

Matchbox Twenty have quietly woven their songs into the very fabric of American popular culture. The band has sold over 40 million records worldwide, dominated charts, garnered multiple GRAMMY Award nominations, and played to millions of fans in arenas, amphitheaters, and stadiums across continents.

Earning hits in each of the last three decades, Matchbox has gone from perennially dominating radio airwaves and ruling MTV to piling up streams in the billions, speaking to the enduring appeal of their music. Fueled by such classic songs as “Real World,” “Back 2 Good” and the No. 1 smash hits “Push” and “3AM,” 1996’s Diamond-certified Yourself or Someone Like You proved a worldwide sensation and instantly established the band as global superstars. 2000 saw the band release the four-times Platinum Mad Season, containing the No. 1 singles “Bent” and “If You’re Gone.”  Their third releaseMore Than You Think You Arealso was certified double-Platinum and featured the No. 1 hit, “Unwell.” 2007’s greatest hits compilation album with six new songs, “Exile On Mainstream” yielded yet another No. 1 track, “How Far We’ve Come,” while 2012’s North, exploded into the top position on the Billboard 200 release – Matchbox Twenty’s first-ever chart-topper and No. 1 debut.

Now nearly eleven years later, the band sounds refreshed as ever on Where The Light Goes, benefitting from the musicians’ respective solo journeys. Rob Thomas has proven one of the most highly decorated artists of recent years – releasing five solo albums and receiving three GRAMMY Awards, 11 BMI Awards, the first-ever Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award, two Billboard “Songwriter of the Year” honors, and top 5 placement on Billboard’s Top 20 Hot 100 Songwriters of the aughts. Meanwhile, Paul Doucette has scored and contributed original music to film and television series such as Utopia, For All Mankind, and more.
