About The Wallflowers
The Wallflowers are a rock band that initially started out under the name “The Apples”. After changing their name, they played around clubs in Los Angeles and sent out their demo tapes to various record companies and major figures in the music industry. Soon, one of the tapes caught the attention of Andrew Slater, who eventually ended up becoming the band’s manager. Soon, the band was signed on to Virgin Records, and well on its way to begin recording. Their songs were meant to give a very basic and raw feel, with live recordings and very little usage of musical instruments. This is the reason why it took the band a while to find a producer willing to work on their album. After the release of this self-titled debut album on 25th August 1992, The Wallflowers began touring nationwide as an opening act for bands such as 10,000 Maniacs and the Spin Doctors.
Even though the sales for the album were a little slow, the band continued to tour. The reviews for this debut album, however, were largely positive. The Rolling Stone rated the album 4 stars, calling it a “sweet debut”. But due to the lack of commercial success of the album, the band soon parted ways with Virgin Records, in a mutual agreement.
After this, the band went back to playing around in various clubs in the Los Angeles area. It wasn’t until 1994 that the band was signed on to Interscope Records. Their first album with this label, Bringing Down the Horse, was produced by T Bone Burnett. It was released in May, 1996, and was followed by a tour for its promotion. The album sales started out slow, but after the release of “6th Avenue Heartache”, along with its David Fincher-directed video, the fame for the band began to grow. The Wallflowers even got to appear on Saturday Night Live. By December of the same year, the album had received a gold certification by the RIAA, after having sold an impressive 500,000 copies.
Further success followed as the band was nominated for two Grammy Awards for “6th Avenue Heartache”. After the release of the second single from the album, called “One Headlight”, the band got heavier airplay and within six weeks, the album went double platinum.
More Grammy nominations followed for “One Headlight”, with the band winning two out of the three awards it was nominated for, including Best Rock Song.
Breach in 2001
In 2001, the band released their third studio album, called (Breach). Even though this album received positive reviews, it was not as big a success as its predecessor. The album peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200 and received a Gold certification a year later.
The Red Letter Days in 2002
The band released its fourth album, Red Letter Days, in 2002. The album was met with mixed reviews and many critics noted the changes in the sound of the band. It peaked at number 32 on the Billboard 200 and was followed by an extensive tour.
The next album by the band, Rebel, Sweetheart was released in 2005 and received positive reviews. It peaked at No. 40 on the Billboard 200. Following the release of this album, the band took a break from their careers.
In 2011, it was announced that the band would be reuniting to release their sixth studio album, Glad All Over. The album was released in July 2012 and was followed by a series of promotional performances on various television shows and a tour, as the opening act of Eric Clapton.
In May 2016, the 1996 album, Bringing Down the Horse was reissued as a 20th anniversary celebration. And now the band members are geared up to perform for their fans again. Grab The Wallflowers tickets to catch them live in action!
