Jakob Dylan, frontman for The Wallflowers has suggested plans to reunite The Wallflowers from their 6 year hiatus, saying he “always wanted to” and that “I can’t do what I do in the Wallflowers without them. I miss it.”
Speaking to Rolling Stone, he revealed that the band never really broke up in the first place, saying:
“I never suggested we were breaking up. We all felt we were losing the plot a little bit and we needed a break. And that year break becomes two years, then becomes three years, and before you know it five or six years go by pretty quickly.”
He plans to record a new album with the band early next year. “I’ve got new songs and we’ve all been talking,” he says. “We’ve been trying to carve that time out for a while.” This would be the band’s first album since 2005’s Rebel, Sweetheart.
Jakob Dylan recently performed as a part of Tom Petty’s benefit concerts for the US college radio station KCSN-FM.
