Mixing introspective singer-songwriter sensibilities with a commitment to genuine roots rock, The Wallflowers have released five studio albums, sold more than eight million copies of their catalog, topped the Billboard charts, scored a multiplatinum album, several Modern Rock hits, two Grammy? awards and a legion of fans. The Wallflowers will release a ?retrospective? set entitled Collected:[masked] on June 16, 2009 (Interscope/UMe). The disc brings together fourteen of the Los Angeles group?s hit songs - from their 1996 breakthrough quadruple platinum album Bringing Down The Horse all the way through to their most recent full-length, 2005?s critically acclaimed Rebel, Sweetheart - plus two unreleased tracks.
With leader Jakob Dylan overseeing its production and compiling the track list, the 16-selection Collected:[masked] is the definitive look at a critically-acclaimed favorite of the past decade, whose tales of disillusionment and perseverance were wrapped in a sound both gritty and polished, melancholy and aggressive.
An extensive US summer tour will feature Rami Jaffee (keyboards) and Greg Richling (bass) along with Jakob Dylan (vocals/guitar), Fred Eltringham (drums/vocals), and Stuart Mathis (guitar). The Wallflowers three-month trek is set to begin in mid-June and last through August.
After a 1992 major label album, The Wallflowers broke through with 1996?s Bringing Down The Horse, produced by the renowned T-Bone Burnett with the Top 10 Modern Rockers ?One Headlight? (#1), ?6th Avenue Heartache? (which guested Adam Duritz of Counting Crows), and ?The Difference,? plus the Top 20 track ?Three Marlenas.? Collected:[masked] also includes ?Invisible City? from the same album.
