For the past 30 years, the Wallflowers have stood as one of rock’s most dynamic and purposeful bands – a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996’s Bringing Down the Horse as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012’s Glad All Over.
The Jakob Dylan-led act returned to the studio for the first time in nearly a decade with their seventh studio album, 2021’s Exit Wounds. Dylan describes the album as an ode to people – individual and collective – that have, to put it mildly, “been through some stuff.” When it came to realizing the new songs on record, Dylan assembled a backing band of people he says he’s wanted to play with through the years.
Dylan says the spirit of collaboration that comes from playing in a band, even with a constantly shifting lineup, is a sacred thing. Dylan says it’s been his vision to be part of a great rock ‘n’ roll band like the ones he grew up with. With the Wallflowers, he says he’s been working towards that goal for 30 years, but he still has a lot to say, and his work is far from finished.
