PORTLAND – Acclaimed Universal Republic rock band 3 Doors Down topped the Billboard 200 chart last week for the second time in its career. The self-titled effort, “3 Doors Down,” the band’s fourth studio release, is a more-than-worthy follow-up to its multiplatinum 2005 album, “Seventeen Days,” which also debuted at No. 1.

The band – which has also clinched the No. 1 spot on the Top Current Rock Albums and the Current Alternative charts with the latest release – will play the Cumberland County Civic Center Wednesday, July 23.

Also performing at the concert, scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m., will be Staind and Hinder.

It was initially announced that the concert would be July 15. Show tickets for that earlier date will be honored. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase.

3 Doors Down is putting up massive radio numbers with “Its Not My Time,” the first single from the band’s latest album, released in stores May 20. Its much anticipated fourth studio album has spawned rock’s biggest radio hit of the year so far, with the debut single becoming the fastest moving song at Active Rock radio in the last five years. “It’s Not My Time” was the No. 1 Most Added song at Alternative Radio and scored as Greatest Gainer three weeks in a row at the coveted Rock Radio format. The track closed in on the 50,000 mark in digital sales in less than a month of release.

With nearly 13 million albums sold worldwide, the fiery group has rewritten the rock script on maintaining commercial success and securing rabid fan appeal without bowing to trends or compromising its grassroots approach.

Braced by front-man Brad Arnold’s enduring vocal power, 3 Doors Down has put together a streak of powerful albums and chart-topping singles, including its 6 million selling 2000 breakthrough effort, “The Better Life,” and mega-hit signature songs such as the No.1 “Kryptonite,” and “When I’m Gone,” from 2003’s “Away From The Sun.”

An exceptional live band, 3 Doors Down stands among the top concert draws in North America, performing more than 300 sold-out live shows a year.

Tickets are $42.50, general admission, all ages. Tickets are available at the CCCC box office, by calling 775-3458 and online at www.livenation.com
