NEW ALBUM: WALLFLOWERS | EXIT WOUNDS

Jakob Dylan has released his first album with The Wallflowers in almost a decade titled, "Exit Wounds" which comes nine years after 2012’s "Glad All Over." Dylan typically takes several years between releases. Even The Wallflowers' hit-spawning 1996 breakthrough, "Bringing Down the Horse" with hits "One Headlight" and "6th Avenue Heartache," didn't produce a follow-up for four years ("Breach"). Dylan wrote the songs for ‘Exit Wounds’ “when the world felt like it was falling apart.” He said, “That changes the way you address even the simplest things because you have panic in your mind all the time. You have anxiety. And you also have hope. And it’s all in there”. Recorded in Los Angeles at producer Butch Walker’s studio, the 10 tracks were wrapped in a couple of weeks in early 2020. As with past Wallflowers records, Dylan fronts a rotating cast of musicians. The majority of the players on “Exit Wounds” are members of Walker’s regular band: bassist Whynot Jansveld; keyboardist Aaron Embry; drummer Mark Stepro and Walker himself on guitars, keyboards and, on the rollicking “Who’s That Man Walking ‘Round My Garden,” the all-important cowbell.
