As Hoobastank continues to look back on their journey as a band, this new episode of the docuseries shows the guys reflecting on being young and naive as they pursued the band after graduating high school. They found themselves a home in the LA scene, bouncing between The Roxy and Whisky a Go Go, where they built up a solid hometown fanbase. After having a demo deal in 1999, Hoobastank announced to a packed house in LA that they ultimately signed a record deal in August 2000.
Next episodes of the docuseries will be released every other Thursday.
Almost two decades later, Hoobastank is still clocking in at over 6M monthly listeners on Spotify and “Crawling In The Dark” has surpassed the 100M streaming mark across DSPs. The band’s 2003 follow up studio album The Reason took them to even greater heights and solidified Hoobastank as a household name. The title track “The Reason” went 4x RIAA Platinum and racked up quite a few #1 chart positions along the way, while the album went 2x RIAA Platinum. “The Reason” has over 2 Billion streams/views which has helped lead the way to the band’s catalog surpassing the 3 billion mark across the various streaming platforms. The band looks forward to continuing their success in the years to come while also celebrating what they have accomplished so far.
Hoobastank continues to hit career milestones as the official music video for “The Reason” crossed 900M views on YouTube over the weekend.
