Daughtry group

Daughtry are set to release their third album ‘Break the Spell’ on November 21st. Frontman Chris Daughtry spoke with ‘On Air with Ryan Seacrest’ about the project. “Most of the material on the record is way more upbeat, way more positive lyrically than the last two records,” the ‘American Idol’ alum said. “I think that all came from not doing it for awhile.” Listen to the interview below.

Daughtry Promote ‘September’ In New York City

With an arena tour that wrapped last month, Chris Daughtry and guitarist/co-songwriter Brian Craddock flew into New York City to promote the band’s latest single, ‘September’, and invited PopEater to experience what it’s like rolling with the band. The ‘American Idol’ alum said being a father has influenced the way he writes songs. “Certainly you feel that you don’t want to put anything in your music that you wouldn’t want your kids listening to,” he said. “That’s always in the back of my mind. Not only do we have a lot of kid fans, but more importantly, we want to be an example to our own kids.” Watch a clip from Daughtry’s day below and the full story at
