Hoobastank–the group–have premiered More Beautifulthe first song from themulti-platinum, 3X GRAMMY-nominatedband’s upcoming PUSH PULLalbum, due out May 25 on noted rock independent label Napalm Records. The album is available for pre-order starting today here.

New album ‘Push Pull’ finds Hoobastank — Doug Robb (Lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Dan Estrin (Lead guitar/keyboards), Chris Hesse (Drums/percussion/backing vocals), Jesse Charlene  (bassist/keyboardist/backing vocals)– exploring both rock and pop songwriting with a renewed vigor.

For their sixth studio album and first new music since 2012’s Fight or Flight, the band partnered with producer Matt Wallace(Faith No More, Deftones, Maroon 5, Andy Grammer). As a result, PUSH PULLnails a bull’s-eye to the group’s underappreciated sweet spot–the large-scale, muscular ‘80s-‘90s alternative rock of U2, Duran Duran, INXS and even Tears for Fears, whose “Heads Over Heels”gets a brawny, Bowiesque take on the new collection.

Hoobastank approached ‘Push Pull’ with the swagger and confidence of a band whose first three albums all went either gold, platinum or multi-platinum. The Reasongarnered GRAMMY nominationsfor “Song of the Year,” “Best Rock Album”and “Best Pop Performance” for a Duo or Group.

Album highlights include the go-for-broke “Just Let Go (Who Cares if We Fall),”which sums up Hoobastank’sattitude. “At least we get to fly,” sings Robb. In the title track “Push Pull,” and “More Beautiful,” Doug unleashes his falsetto, while the funky R&Bfeel is a tribute to Dan’s early, late–‘90s penchant for Chic and “groove-based” dance music.

Songs like “True Believer”and “Buzzkill (Before You Say Goodbye)”show Hoobastankmaturing from adolescent to adult relationships, often examining the difficulty of keeping alive the sexuality that fuels them.  “We Don’t Need the World” and “There Will Never Be Another”explore the protective bubble and the memories which bind two people together.

Doug’s lyrics to the headphones-worthy “Fallen Starwere inspired by a memory of him watching television  one night and seeing a military family of a soldier who had died in combat. It made him think of the brave men and women who serve and even more so now the parents of those who serve.

With ‘Push Pull’, Hoobastankfind themselves looking back to the future, combining the best of what brought them here and establishing their presence in the current pop-rock spectrum.
