Matchbox Twenty’s chart-topping single “Unwell” has been breaking records at multiple radio formats. “Unwell” is the second single from Matchbox Twenty’s third album More Than You Think You Are. The band has now had more Number One hits and spent more weeks at Number One on both the national modern AC and adult top 40 charts than any other artist in history, according to the BDS (Broadcast Data Systems) airplay monitoring service.

Five Matchbox Twenty tracks have spent a combined total of 51 weeks at the modern AC format, while four tracks have spent a total of 47 weeks at adult top 40.

In addition, “Unwell” has been Number One on the adult top 40 Chart for the past 11 weeks-with week 12 coming up-while holding the all-time spin record at the format. “Unwell” and “Disease” are the latest in a seven-year string of hit singles for the band including “Push,” 3AM,” “Real World,” “Back 2 Good,” “If You’re Gone,” “Bent,” and “Mad Season.”

Matchbox 20’s headlining tour of North America will wrap up on Sunday (July 6) in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The band’s June 28 concert at the Philips Arena in Atlanta was filmed for an upcoming DVD.

Next, Matchbox Twenty heads to Australia for a string of sold out dates starting July 25.
