These titans of rock will release their second album, Out Of Exile , on May 23 rd with the single Be Yourself following on May 30 th. Be Yourself takes a more subtle approach to rock than previous opening track Cochise (from their 2002 self-titled debut) and has already proved a hit on the radio in the US, currently standing at #1 on the Modern Rock, Active Rock and Mainstream Rock charts. Even in the mysterious world of American radio charts, that makes impressive reading.
