The Wallflowers will release Exit Wounds on July 9th via New West Records. The 10-song set is their first album in nearly a decade and was produced by Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Weezer). Exit Wounds was mixed by Chris Dugan (Green Day) and features the acclaimed singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne on four songs.
The Wallflowers announced their return last month with a live performance of the first single “Roots and Wings” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! See the performance HERE. The Wallflowers have also been announced as a part of Good Morning America’s 2021 Summer Concert Series on Tuesday, July 13th. In addition to the televised broadcast, the performance will be streamed live on the ABC app, Youtube TV, or Hulu + Live TV.
Stream the lead off track “Maybe Your Heart’s Not In It No More” below. Frontman Jakob Dylan described the song as “a conversation you could find yourself having with your muse — one where you’re asking if they’ve changed their mind or have you changed yours. Are you still in sync or have you lost touch? You’ll be needing one another — so checking on each other’s condition now and then is a good idea.”
Exit Wounds finds Dylan surrounded with a fresh cast of musicians, which he is quick to point out is not all that unusual. “The Wallflowers have always been a vehicle for me to make great rock ‘n’ roll records,” he says. “And sometimes the lineup that makes the record transfers over into touring, and sometimes it doesn’t. But my intention is always to make the Wallflowers record I want to make, using the musicians I have beside me. This was not the type of thing where it’s a rotating cast and you call a different drummer for each song, or you pull out the Rolodex and ring the local session guys,” Dylan says. “The record was made as a band – the five Wallflowers.”
