Rob Thomas released Chip Tooth Smile, his fourth studio album, in April through Atlantic Records. The Matchbox Twenty frontman brings his solo show to The Anthem on Friday, July 12!
Chip Tooth Smile is a 12-track collection featuring production from Butch Walker (Panic! At The Disco, P!nk) and Benny Blanco (Ed Sheeran), and it perfectly showcases Rob’s long-acclaimed songwriting talent.
“I was writing about experiences I’ve been through that I could’ve only been through by getting older, by facing mortality, by having a son, by having a family, and by having responsibilities that I didn’t have when I first started out,” Rob said. “It’s very autobiographical about where I’m at now and where I’m headed.”

Debuting at #3 on the Billboard Top Album Sales chart, Chip Tooth Smile has been met with an outpouring of critical acclaim since its release.
“Rob Thomas is an expert at his craft,” raved Variety, while Forbes echoed “Chip Tooth Smile is vintage Thomas — smart songwriting, excellent pop/rock craftsmanship, eclectic, and at times moving, at times, fun, and always solid.”
Variety also declared Rob’s live show to be “a fist-pumping celebration of life” following opening night in Red Bank, New Jersey, further praising him as “a consummate performer” and noting “it’s impossible to keep your eyes off of him as he works every inch of the stage.”
