Multi-platinum group Third Eye Blind has been topping the charts since arriving on the national music scene in 1997, garnering many awards and nominations and selling approximately 12 million records worldwide. The groups’ self-titled album, including chart-topping hits like “Semi-Charmed Life” and “How’s It Going to Be,” went platinum six times, and the album titled “Blue,” released in 1999, went platinum twice. In 1999, Third Eye Blind was nominated for two American Music Awards – Favorite Pop/Rock New Artist and Favorite Alternative Artist – and in 1997 the group won a Billboard Music Award for Best Modern Rock Track, “Semi-Charmed Life.” The group is currently recording a fifth album, projected to be released by summer 2014.
Panic! At The Disco recently released their fourth studio album, “Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Albums Chart. The album features the Top 10 alternative rock hit “Miss Jackson (feat. Lolo)” and the bands current single “This Is Gospel.” The album follows their 2005 double-platinum “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out,” 2008’s “Pretty. Odd.,” which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Album chart, and 2011’s “Vices & Virtues,” which debuted at No. 7. Panic! At The Disco will set out on their highly anticipated “The Gospel Tour” this summer, a national headline tour and follow up to the sold out “Too Weird To Live, Too Rare To Die” tour.
