The Wallflowers at Xcite Center

Saturday, August 5, 2023, 8 pm

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.

Exit Wounds, the brand-new Wallflowers studio offering. The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since Glad All Over. And while the wait has been long, the much-anticipated record finds the band’s signature sound – lean, potent, and eminently entrancing – intact, even as Dylan surrounds himself with a fresh cast of musicians.

As far as Exit Wounds, Dylan continues, “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.”

For Dylan, Exit Wounds is the next chapter in a career devoted to chasing – and capturing – that magic. “I came up in an era of great rock ‘n’ roll bands making great music, and it’s the way I always imagined I would do it one day,” he says.

Joining The Wallflowers is Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Leslie Mendelson, known for her most recent studio album “If You Can’t say Anything Nice…” , as well as a solo acoustic EP ‘In The Meantime.’
