Vertical Horizon Heads Straight Up as New Album is Certified Gold, While Title Single 'Everything You Want' Perches High Atop The Charts
LOS ANGELES, March 20 /PRNewswire/ -- It's up and away for RCA band Vertical Horizon, whose latest album and single, "Everything You Want", are proving everything the band could have hoped for. As the band continues an extensive national tour, the album, Everything You Want, currently #40 on the Billboard Top 100, has just been RIAA-certified gold, while the title track is now the #10 most played song across the country (all formats combined). See below for a complete listing of the band's current itinerary. The chart success comes at a frenetically busy time for the New England- based quartet. Vertical Horizon made an appearance on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno" on February 21, and is slated to perform live on "The Late Show with Craig Kilborn" on March 21. Founding members Matt Scannell and Keith Kane formed Vertical Horizon in 1991 while students at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. The following year, they released their debut LP, There and Back Again. As word spread, the band landed increasingly more prestigious tours, opening for such groups as the Allman Brothers, Better Than Ezra and the Samples. They also appeared on the Aware II compilation. In 1995, Vertical Horizon released their second indie album, Running On Ice. Drummer Ed Toth joined the lineup the following year and performed on the band's 1997 release, Live Stages. Bassist Sean Hurley signed up a year later, completing the lineup as it is today. Upon signing to RCA, in early 1999, the band reissued its three previous LPs, making their official major-label debut with Everything You Want later that year.
