The band has toured the globe countless times, performed in front of millions of fans, received numerous awards (including four Grammy nominations), and recorded and released 10 studio albums, including their latest, "Magnetic," which debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and at No. 2 on the top rock albums chart, propelled by singles "Rebel Beat" and "Come To Me." Rzeznik has also been honored with the Songwriters Hall of Fame Hal David Starlight Award.
