Originally founded in Agoura Hills, California in 1994, Hoobastank is an American rock band, associated with the post-grunge and nu-metal scenes. The original line-up consisted of vocalist Doug Robb, guitarist Dan Estrin, drummer Chris Hesse and bassist Markku Lappalainen. The current line-up consists of Robb, Estrin, Hesse and bassist Jesse Charland. After initially building a following in Southern California's music scene throughout the mid-to-late 1990s, the band was signed to Island Records in 2001. Hoobastank subsequently released their self-titled début studio album the same year. The album would eventually achieved platinum status, while singles like 'Running Away' and 'Crawling in the Dark' gained significant airplay. This was then followed by the release of their most successful album, 'The Reason', in 2003. This album would eventually go 2x platinum, while the title track became a global hit, reaching number two on the Billboard Hot 100 and entering the top 20 in countries like the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and Australia. The band's new-found global popularity led to them earning a slot as a support act on Linkin Park's 'Meteora' world tour, as well as a co-headlining slot on a tour with Velvet Revolver. Although subsequent albums have been unable to achieve the same level of commercial success, 2006's 'Every Man for Himself' and 2009's 'For(n)ever' both peaked in the top 30 of the US Billboard 200 albums chart. A 'Greatest Hits' album was also released in 2009, while the band's fifth studio album, 'Fight or Flight', was released in 2012 and earned a positive critical response. In 2017, the band moved to Napalm Records and the following year, Hoobastank released their sixth studio album, entitled 'Push Pull'. It marked a significant stylistic shift, with the band adopting a more pop-friendly approach and moving away from the nu-metal sound they are best known for.
