0
Hoobastank's third full-length effort, "Every Man For Himself," will be released April 18 via Island, reports BillBoard. The Californian act teamed up once again with producer Howard Benson (POD, My Chemical Romance), who manned the boards for its hit 2003 album "The Reason." First single "If I Were You" can be streamed via the band's official website. The band's previous album "The Reason" peaked at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 in May 2004 and has sold 2.3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The single of the same name is the band's highest charting song, spending much of 2004 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it peaked at No. 2. The album spawned three Grammy nominations and also featured the singles "Disappear," "Out Of Control" and "Same Direction." Read more at this location.

    "The Reason" was a rock ballad. If they can change up on one song I think that shows more talent. As long as they don't try to ride on that for the rest of their career and stick to what they like then hell yeah. Their heavier songs are the best though.

    il drink to that, good lad. not heard the new song.. i can bet it'l be another ballad like "the reason".. to be honest i agree that by doing ballads it makes thier music more diverse.. but they aren't really the sort of band that are all that good at doing ballads.. tho.. i think i (like most people) just don't like it that much because it was painfully overplayed.

    no seriously though i like the song "the reason". it isn't full of distortion and effects which shows they have talent and can actually play well unlike alot of today's bands

    I liked The Reason album, hopefully this'll be quite good. Depends which direction they take.

    im not gonna lie. i really like this band. the reason(song) was disappointing, but im gonna give the new album a chance before i go judging

    I think the self titled LP was more along the lines of Incubus but The Reason kind of pulled away from that. I want to hear 'They Sure Don't Make Basketball Shorts Like They Used To' but I can't find it anywhere...even online.

    i hated the song "the reason" it was terrible and all my friends loved it made me want to get new friends and it was soooo overplayed

    hoobastank, they were AWESOME on their first album the reason was horrible

    I hope they don't cock this up. I enjoyed the first album a lot (Crawling in the Dark - awesome song) and the second album slightly less so...I hope they don't go all queer and pseudo-emo.

    lol...ive always hated hoobastank up until i read this comments part..lol i thought theyr other songs were like the reason too.. heeh..

    dude, coldplay are one of the best bands around, right up there with soad, franz and weezer. anyway, their new song isn't all that, but neither was the reason. they need to put out a pop radio-station friendy single to promote the album. the reason was a great album, i'm sure their new one is gonna kick ass!

    The Reason is good. Overplayed, yes. Just because they have a few "ballads" dosent mean they suck. All the rest of thier music is quality music. Yea, their S/T album is alot better than The Reason ablum, but still. Just because "If I Were You" isnt as hard as their normal music, dosent mean the whole album is going to blow. Personally, I cant wait for their new album. Ive seen these guys live tons of times, and everytime I see them, Im never bored.

    well i really think hoobastank are a really talented punk rock band but my only complaint is that they need to work on some of their beats! i like bands with good beats and that's really something i think i could help hoobastank with! so if Mr. or Mrs. Hoobastank are reading this please call me! i can save your beats!

    There first got some awsome songs.. Crawling in the dark, running away

    I always sorta kinda liked them because back in the day, they reminded me of Incubus, my fav. band. But then I caught them live once, and they were hoooorible. Then their new album was just radio-friendly pop. yea soooo I dont like Hooba anymore.

    The new song "If I Were You" is complete rubbish. It's worse than the song "The Reason." The album The Reason wasn't so bad, except that song really got to me b/c it's not Hoobastank. Anyone else listen to the new song yet? It's awful...

    I have their first cd hoobastank and my brother has the reason.And those was good cds.But i heard their new song and oh my god that song is so awfull.They should really give up by now!

    Hoobstanks last album had a few good songs, but nothing worth spending money on. It just goes to show that one shitty song can sell you over two million albums in this society of followers

    hoobastank try to be like incubus nowadays too much, back in the days of crawling in the dark was their best days

    Dude, the only soft song on their latest CD was The Reason. All the others were like their previous releases. Did you even listen to "The Reason"(album, not song)?

    As long as they never make a song like the reason again im cool with them. God, that song was horrible.
    im not mental

    yeah, it's sad.
    RockMusicFan
    How could you compare them to Coldpaly? Just cause they have two or three soft songs does not make them like Coldplay.

    i heard their "they don't make basketball shorts like they used to" album too, and it's good, but i really didn't like the reason...i had preordered it and everything, and ended up selling it back to half price books

    most of there songs sound the same and people who didnt know music that well or didnt know how to play a instrument thought the reason was a great songs and all the musicians thought it sucked becasue it did!
    shesadaytripper
    If somebody starts singing the reason in the same building as me i will find them and punch them in the face.

    ^lol yeah i hated that song but i copied the reason (album) from a friend and it had some ok stuff. Not really my kind of music but i wont trash them or anything. There making music the way they like it and thats all there is to it

    I hope this is different to the last album, because it Hoobastunk . Oh how witty. But really, I think they're rubbish, Each to their own I s'pose.

    Agreed. Their 2nd album was not bad though, the guitarist has a couple of nice rhythm riffs
