TheRock act 3 Doors Down has settled on a name for its upcoming Universal album. "Seventeen Days" won't be out until Feb. 8, but the single "Let Me Go" is already making noise on U.S. radio outlets. The cut debuts this week at No. 27 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and No. 33 on the Modern Rock Tracks survey.
"Seventeen Days" was produced by Johnny K (Disturbed, Drowning Pool) and is the follow-up to 2002's "Away From the Sun." That set debuted at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 and has sold more than 3 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
"I think it is going to be a little edgier record," bassist Todd Harrell told Billboard.com this summer, when the band was still sifting through material. "I think there will be more rock songs on it and who knows -- we might get in there and write 10 new songs that might cancel out the ones we have now. But right now, it looks like the record is going to be a little bit heavier than the last."
An extensive tour in support of "Seventeen Days" is expected next year. The only date on 3 Doors Down's schedule at present is the band's Dec. 18 fundraiser for its the Better Life Foundation. To be held at the Grand Casino in Biloxi, Miss., the event will also boast performances by Tracy Lawrence, Shinedown and members of Lynyrd Skynyrd.
