Wallflowers frontman tackles God, war and drunken puppets on fifth album with rollingstone.com
Four albums and more than a decade down the line, the Wallflowers return on May 24th with Rebel, Sweetheart, the follow-up to 2002?s Red Letter Days. Recorded with veteran rock producer Brendan O?Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen), the album showcases more of singer-songwriter Jakob Dylan?s meticulously crafted songs, with topics ranging from the war in Iraq to failed friendships. The band -- singer-guitarist Dylan, keyboardist Rami Jaffee, bassist Greg Richling and new drummer Fred Eltringham (Ben Kweller) -- will launch a tour in support of Rebel at the end of April. Dylan speaks to Rolling Stone about songwriting, his secret sense of humor and not behaving like Axl Rose.
Original Days of the New members Todd Whitener, Matt Taul, and Jesse Vest were fired from the band but would go on to form the band Tantric, while Meeks formed a new band under the Days of the New name.
