MUSIC NEWS - The Wallflowers have announced their long-awaited new studio album Glad All Over will be released on October 2, 2012 via Columbia Records. The band's new single, "Reboot The Mission," is a Clash-inspired track with an unmistakable shuffle backbeat, featuring The Clash's Mick Jones on vocals and guitar. The new tune will be available for FREE beginning this Tuesday, July 24th at their website.
Recently wrapping recording in Nashville, TN at Easy Eye Sound studio, the new album has frontman Jakob Dylan joining up with other original band members Greg Richling (bass) and Rami Jaffee (keyboards), with The Wallflowers' longtime guitarist Stuart Mathis and drummer Jack Irons (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam) rounding out the music lineup. The album was produced by Jay Joyce (Emmylou Harris, Cage the Elephant) and mixed by Rich Costey (Bruce Springsteen).
In addition to their new album, The Wallflowers have announced a brief series of tour dates that will kick off in select USA cities in July (see itinerary below). Expect more tour dates later this year. On these July dates the band expects to give fans a preview of the new material, which finds them rediscovering their sound while reflecting the varied influences they have accumulated over the years.
Formed in Los Angeles, The Wallflowers rose to fame with their 4x platinum album Bringing Down The Horse, which featured four top charting singles including "6th Avenue Heartache," "One Headlight," "The Difference," and "Three Marlenas." The two-time Grammy Award winners went on to sell over 7 million records worldwide with a series of critically acclaimed albums before going on hiatus in 2007. During the group's break from recording, Jakob Dylan released two solo albums, which also garnered significant praise, 2008's Seeing Things and 2010's Women and Country.
