’90s alt-rockers Candlebox are the subject of a new documentary that will be released this fall.

Called Far Behind: The Candlebox Story, the movie will focus on the band’s rise to fame at the beginnings of the grunge scene. It’s being executive-produced by Guy Oseary, who signed the band to Madonna‘s label, Maverick, when he was just 20 years old. Their 1993 self-titled debut album went RIAA-certified four-times Platinum, thanks to singles like “You” and “Far Behind.” 

After splitting in 2000, Candlebox reunited in 2006 and have since released four more albums, including 2021’s Wolves. They’ll hit the road in May.

Frontman Brad Martin says in a statement, “The story of Candlebox is one that’s long overdue for a telling, and I cannot wait to share this documentary with the world – no holds barred, honest, painful, and as real as it gets.”

Director Jack Piatt, whose initiated the film project, adds, “I was in high school when the early 90’s Seattle sound made its way to rural Ohio, and it left a huge impression on my life musically. Candlebox plays a key role in this historic legacy. This is an important story for a lot of people, and I’m honored to have the opportunity to tell it.”

Far Behind: The Candlebox Story is expected to be released this fall.
