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 rocks 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 1996s Bringing Down the Horse as well as more recent and exploratory fare like 2012s Glad All Over.

But while its been nine long years since weve heard from the group with whom he first made his mark, the Wallflowers are silent no more. And Dylan always knew theyd return. The Wallflowers is much of my lifes work, he says simply. That lifes work continues with Exit Wounds, the brand-new Wallflowers studio offering. The collection marks the first new Wallflowers material since Glad All Over.

Exit Wounds, which, true to its title, is an ode to people individual and collective that have, to put it mildly, been through some stuff.

I think everybody no matter what side of the aisle youre on wherever were going to next, we're all taking a lot of exit wounds with us, Dylan says. Nobody is the same as they were four years ago. That, to me, is what Exit Wounds signifies. And it's not meant to be negative at all. It just means that wherever youre headed, even if its to a better place, you leave people and things behind, and you think about those people and those things and you carry them with you. Those are your exit wounds. And right now, were all swimming in them.
