The Wallflowers have announced details of their first album in almost a decade. and co. will release their seventh studio album ‘Exit Wounds’, the long awaited follow-up to 2012’s ‘Glad All Over’, on July 9.
Dylan said in a statement: “The Wallflowers is much of my life’s work. I think everybody — no matter what side of the aisle you’re on — wherever we’re going to next, we’re all taking a lot of exit wounds with us. Nobody is the same as they were four years ago. That, to me, is what ‘Exit Wounds’ signifies. And it’s not meant to be negative at all. It just means that wherever you’re headed, even if it’s to a better place, you leave people and things behind, and you think about those people and those things and you carry them with you. Those are your exit wounds. And right now, we’re swimming in them. I’m the same writer I’ve always been — I was just also writing during a time when the world felt like it was falling apart. 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.”
Exit Wounds is available to preorder now. The band have also scheduled a U.S. summer tour with Matchbox Twenty that kicks off just a week after Exit Wounds’ release.
