Their much anticipated fourth studio album has spawned rock's biggest radio hit of the year so far, with the debut single becoming the fastest moving song at Active Rock radio in the past five years. The #1 most added song at Alternative radio the past 3 weeks in a row, "It's Not My Time" was also the biggest Gainer at the coveted rock radio format, leaping from #20 to #16 as it closes in on the prestigious 50,000 mark in digital sales in less than a month of release.
"The early radio success of "It's Not My Time" is an incredible indication of more great things to come from this band and this album," stated Monte Lipman, President & CEO of Universal Republic Records. "3 Doors Down have become a signature presence in rock through hard work and passionate songwriting that speaks directly to their audience. They have delivered a career-defining album that we cannot wait to get into the hands of fans."
The new CD has already got internet fans buzzing, with talk of other choice tracks such as the adrenalin-fueled "Train," and the rousing "It's The Only One You've Got", pointing to more milestones from the Mississipi fivesome, from a new album steeped in rock anthems and power-driven radio hits. The follow-up to their #1 debut album, 2005's Seventeen Days, lead singer Brad Arnold cites this effort as perhaps the most communal band effort. "3 Doors Down has always been about every band member giving everything we've got," says the singer/songwriter. "On this album we really wanted to make every song count. We owe it to our fans who have been there to support us from day one."
The group's followers have embraced "It's Not My Time" in record numbers, making it one of the bigger request records of the new year. The single's jump from #10 to #4 on the Active rock chart marks one of the fastest launches into the Top Ten of any 3 Doors Down song in their history.
