What do Alice in Chains and Counting Crows have in common? No, I’m not talkin’ about their Hair Club for Men membership…
If you’ve ever wondered if Jakob Dylan’s a fan of The Clash, wonder no longer.
Dylan has often referenced Joe Strummer and The Clash as a huge influence, and he wears it proudly on his sleeve on the new Wallflowers single, “Reboot The Mission.” With a piano driven rocksteady beat, the song wouldn’t sound out of place on Combat Rock. But The Clash references go far beyond just the sound of the song.
It’s been nearly six years since we’ve heard from The Wallflowers, but the band is back and they’re hitting the road to preview their new as-yet-untitled album, due out sometime in the fall.
