« Back to all albums

Arrival was released in 2000. It was Journey's first studio album with new lead singer Steve Augeri, who had replaced singer Steve Perry. Journey also had a new drummer, Deen Castronovo, for this record. The album was originally first released in Japan in late 2000, but due to its leakage onto the Internet, the band decided to delay its release in the United States. Due to feedback from fans who heard the leaked version of Arrival, the band decided to record two harder rocking songs, which were included on the American version of the album. Arrival produced a minor adult contemporary hit with the ballad "All the Way", while rock fans were more satisfied with songs like "Higher Place" and the two new tracks on the American release, "World Gone Wild" and "Nothin' Comes Close".
