Fresh off first No. 1 at Active Rock, Grammy-nominated band is back with ‘Pieces’

Press Release

After achieving their first No. 1 at Active Rock and first No. 1 single in 15 years with their Big Machine debut, “Artificial,” Daughtry returns with a biting new follow-up in “Pieces,” out now on all platforms via Big Machine Records.

Written shortly after the passing of both his daughter and mother, frontman Chris Daughtry’s iconic vocals carry the weight on a universal tale of strength in loss for the band’s most raw release to date. The hard-hitting track continues to usher in a fine-tuned and razor-sharp new era for the Grammy-nominated group, as Daughtry make a return to hard rock roots.

“Pieces” and “Artificial” will both be available on the band’s new EP, due out this fall. Listen to “Pieces” here.

“At some point in our lives, we will all experience trauma of some kind – something that chips away at the essence of who we are,” Daughtry explained. “Sometimes, it’s an event so devastating that it shatters our reality and rips a hole through our soul. This is about finding the strength to pick up those broken pieces, face the darkness head on, and fight your way toward the light.”

Daughtry, one of the most visible and best-selling rock bands of the 21st century, has sold out concerts across the globe. Their debut album, the self-titled “Daughtry,” was the top-selling album of 2007 and was the fastest-selling rock debut album in Soundscan history. The record was nominated for four Grammy Awards and won four American Music Awards, alongside seven Billboard Music Awards, including Album of the Year. Subsequent albums (“Leave This Town,” 2009; “Break The Spell,” 2011; “Baptized,” 2013) have all gone Platinum, with “Cage To Rattle” (2018) certified Gold.

In 2021, the band released the record “Dearly Beloved,” with singles “World On Fire,” “Heavy Is The Crown” and “Changes Are Coming” all cracking the Top 10. Following yet another Top 10 success with the 2023 smash cover of Journey’s “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)" featuring Halestorm's Lzzy Hale, Daughtry ushered in a new sonic era with their debut Big Machine Records single, “Artificial.” The return to their rock roots scored the band its first No. 1 single in the Active Rock format, laying the groundwork for the new EP, set to release this fall.

Catch Daughtry on the road this spring for their stateside tour with Breaking Benjamin. The show stops at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls, Ontario, on March 27. For tickets and more information, visit daughtryofficial.com.
