Los Angeles,Â CAÂ MAY 8, 2012â€”The WallflowersÂ have announced they are back in the studio and putting the finishing touches on a long-awaited new studio album that will be released by Columbia Records this fall. Currently recording in Nashville at Dan Auerbachâ€™s (The Black Keys) Easy Eye Sound studio, the new album finds frontmanÂ Jakob DylanÂ joining original band membersÂ Greg RichlingÂ (bass) andÂ Rami Jaffee(keyboards), with Wallflowersâ€™ longtime guitaristÂ Stuart MathisÂ and drummerÂ Jack IronsÂ (Red Hot Chili Peppers, Pearl Jam) rounding out the lineup. The album is being produced byÂ Jay JoyceÂ (Emmylou Harris, Cage the Elephant) and mixed byÂ Rich CosteyÂ (Bruce Springsteen, The Shins).
The Wallflowers have taken their deep history and defining sound into new territory with the release of their upcoming album. The new record has the band doing what it does best while continuing to find new ground to cover.Â â€œIt’s been a while since we’ve felt this energized and creative.
