But that’s not all. Hoobastank will toast the 20th anniversary on the road when they launch a nostalgic 2022 walk with their contemporaries i Lit. The tour covers much of the southern US with stops in 16 cities starting next month. (See all dates below.)
The self-titled Hoobastank album on Island Records kick-started the band’s mainstream arc upon its release in late 2001. The effort’s singles, “Crawling in the Dark”, “Remember Me” and “Running Away” – the latter two released in 2002 – pushed albums to RIAA platinum certified in USA
But while Hooba tank is the group’s major label debut, they released their very first album in 1998, still spelling their name as “Hoobustank”. The 10 song They sure don’t make basketball shorts like they used to… has a ska-punk style compared to the band’s successful nu-metal sound.
Hoobastank gives fans a behind-the-scenes look at life on the road, inside the studio and more in their upcoming docuseries as the band reflects on the 20th anniversary of their self-titled album.
In 2001, the So/Cal alt-rock band’s self-titled release, ‘Hoobastank’, launched the band’s career into mainstream success. … The band will release the docuseries in parts over the next few weeks, with new episodes coming out every other week.
