Exit Wounds

Jump to “More items of this artist”

Seit nunmehr 30 Jahren schon zählt der von Jakob Dylan angeführte Act zu den wohl dynamischsten und determiniertesten Rockbands - eine Einheit, die sich einem Sound verschrieben hat, der zeitloses Songwriting und Storytelling mit einem schonungslosen und entschieden modernen musikalischen Ansatz verbindet, ihn kontinuierlich verfeinert.
Neun lange Jahre ist es her, seit wir von der Gruppe gehört haben, mit der Dylan sich zum ersten Mal einen Namen gemacht hat. An dem hohen Stellenwert, den die Band für ihn einnimmt, hat sich trotz diverser Projekte - u.a. trat er bei dem Dokumentarfilm "Echo In The Canyon" (2018) sowohl als Executive Producer als auch Hauptdarsteller auf - und Soloausflügen jedoch nichts geändert.
"Die Wallflowers machen einen Großteil meines Lebenswerks aus", sagt er schlicht. Dieses Lebenswerk geht mit Exit Wounds weiter, dem neuen Studioalbum: einer Ode an Menschen - ob nun individuell oder kollektiv - die, gelinde gesagt, einiges durchgemacht haben. Produziert von Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Weezer).

Rock 'n' roll is often hard to define, or even to find, in these fractured musical times. But to paraphrase an old saying, you know it when you hear it. And you always hear it with The Wallflowers. For the past 30 years, the Jakob Dylan-led act has stood as one of rock's most dynamic and purposeful bands - a unit dedicated to and continually honing a sound that meshes timeless songwriting and storytelling with a hard-hitting and decidedly modern musical attack. That signature style has been present through the decades, baked into the grooves of smash hits like 1996's Bringing Down the Horse as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012's Glad All Over. But while it's been nine long years since we've heard from the group with whom he first made his mark, The Wallflowers are silent no more. And Dylan always knew they'd return. "The Wallflowers is much of my life's work," he says simply. That life's work continues with Exit Wounds, the brand-new Wallflowers studio offering. The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since Glad All Over. Exit Wounds, which, true to its title, is an ode to people - individual and collective - that have, to put it mildly, been through some stuff. "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," Dylan says. "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 all swimming in them."
