"Since making their debut, Matchbox Twenty has become one of the most admired and consistently successful rock bands in recent history, with over 20 million albums sold worldwide. Named as the "Best New Band" in the 1997 Rolling Stone Readers Poll, they have since moved from accomplishment to accomplishment, clearly establishing themselves as an exceptional unit, both in the studio and on stage.
More Than You Think You Are" follows the RIAA quadruple-platinum Mad Season by Matchbox Twenty, released in May 2000. Matchbox Twenty made their recording debut in 1996 with Yourself Or Someone Like You, which earned the RIAA's prestigious Diamond Award and has been certified 12X platinum in the US alone.
