The Flobots acheive platinum status

Dave Nesi

The Flobots have officially been certified platinum for one million downloads of "Handlebars." The announcement really comes as no surprise. After the single was shipped to radio a few months after the first of the year, it reached "Crazy"-like ubiquity almost immediately. The Flobots are only the second Denver-based act in recent years to have achieved platinum status, the first, of course, being their longtime friends, the Fray. -- Dave Herrera
