The Wallflowers to hit Boston on reunion tour
The Wallflowers have revealed dates for their upcoming reunion tour and forthcoming album. The band will hit Boston for a show at the Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, September 29. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $25.
The California-based rockers will release their long-awaited new studio album, Glad All Over, on October 2. The band’s sixth studio effort and first since 2005’s Rebel, Sweetheart was recorded in Nashville at Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys’ Easy Eye Sound studio. It was produced by Jay Joyce (Emmylou Harris, Cage the Elephant) and mixed by Rich Costey (Bruce Springsteen, The Shins). The video for Glad All Over‘s lead single “Reboot The Mission,” which features special guest Mick Jones of The Clash on vocals and guitar, is streaming below.
Led by frontman Jakob Dylan, The Wallflowers are currently comprised of original band members Greg Richling (bass) and Rami Jaffee (keyboards), with longtime guitarist Stuart Mathis and drummer Jack Irons (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam) rounding out the lineup.
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, Dylan released two solo albums.
