Matchbox Twenty’s Rob Thomas Excited that Band’s Still “Moving Forward”


Last month, Matchbox Twenty released North, their first studio album in 10 years, and it shot straight to the top of the charts, debuting at #1.  It was the group’s first-ever chart-topping album, and nobody is more surprised at its success than frontman Rob Thomas.

“We’ve been really fortunate. We’ve had great success,” Rob said on Tuesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “I think it was nice having a debut and not being around for 10 years and coming out with a record and it debuting at number one to know that we’re still kind of moving forward.”

Rob credits the album’s songwriting as the reason why fans still connect to Matchbox Twenty’s sound.

“A good song is just a good song,” Thomas explained to Ellen DeGeneres before he and the band performed their latest hit, “She’s So Mean.”  “If you’re writing about things that matter to you and I’m a pretty normal person then those things might matter to other people,” Thomas added.

Rob also spoke about his latest efforts to protect animal welfare around the country, and about his and his wife Marisol’s involvement with their own non-profit organization, the Sidewalk Angels Foundation.
