The album, which yielded 3 hits at Top 40 radio, was originally released on August 22nd, 2006, and gave rise to the band’s multi-platinum career. Included on the record were the singles “The Great Escape,” which catapulted the band into the mainstream (RIAA-certified Platinum, Top 10 at Top 40 radio, #1 on then-cultural-scoreboard Total Request Live, etc); “Hero/Heroine,” the nostalgia-tinged second single which was certified Gold by the RIAA; and “Thunder,” also an RIAA Gold single.
