Wallflowers Embark On Two Week Tour – New Album In The Works

Grammy Award-winning recording artists The Wallflowers will kick-off a

two-week run of west-coast dates on June 10 at the East County Pacific

Arts Center in El Cajon, California. On the Back To California tour,

the band will play a mixture of large outdoor venues, concert theatres

and special engagements at intimate clubs in a run designed to bring

fresh vitality to The Wallflowers’ hits, play some band rarities and

covers, and debut some new tunes, according to Jakob Dylan and his band

mates. The brief tour will also serve as a prelude to the recording of

the band’s next album, which is scheduled for release in the first

quarter of 2005.

Renowned producer Brendan O’Brien – who has helmed multi-platinum

albums for Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine and

numerous others — will produce The Wallflowers’ forthcoming album,

with sessions set to begin in early July. For the first time in many

years, O’Brien will return to his road roots as lead guitarist for The

Wallflowers’ Back To California tour, having last taken a break in

production duties to tour with Neil Young in 1997. As Jakob Dylan

explained, “The band has been talking with Brendan about working

together for a long time, and we’re thrilled that the timing is finally

right to make a record with him and get him on stage with us. Yes, he

is a producer of great distinction, and yes he plays a mean guitar,

but,” Dylan added, “he is the new guy and we hope he doesn’t think he’s

getting the good bunk on the bus.”
