It's hard to believe it's been ten long years since Matchbox 20 delivered their last all-new album. Rob Thomas and co notched up their third consecutive top five ARIA album with the 2002 release 'More Than You Think You Are' and garnered an impressive five times platinum accreditation.
Now Warner Music has confirmed the forthcoming local release of the band's new album entitled 'North'.
Band member Paul Doucette explains the 'direction'.
"We went into this record with a lot of material. Many different songs that could have taken us in many different directions," he said. "It sort of overwhelmed us for a bit. But, at a certain point, we figured it out. We figured out where North was."
He and fellow bandmember Kyle Cook will be in Sydney this week, servicing the new single 'She's So Mean' to radio station programmers.
'North' is currently due at local retail on Friday August 31, four days ahead of its US release.
