Jakob Dylan and The Wallflowers have announced a new album titled Exit Wounds, which marks their first full-length in nearly a decade. It will be released on July 9th via New West Records, one week before the band’s 53-date arena tour.

Exit Wounds spans 10 songs and was produced by Butch Walker. Singer-songwriter Shelby Lynne appears on four tracks.

In a statement, Dylan explained the meaning of the album’s title. “I think everybody — no matter what side of the aisle you’re on — wherever we’re going to next, we’re all taking a lot of exit wounds with us. Nobody is the same as they were four years ago,” he said. “That, to me, is what Exit Wounds signifies.”

Adding that the title is not meant to be negative, he continued, “I’m the same writer I’ve always been — I was just also writing during a time when the world felt like it was falling apart. That changes the way you address even the simplest things, because you have panic in your mind all the time. You have anxiety. And you also have hope.”

The Wallflowers announced their return on Thursday night while premiering the lead single, “Roots and Wings”, on Jimmy Kimmy Live. Check out the performance and studio version of the song below.

As for the tour, it kicks off on July 16th at Mohegan Sun in Connecticut and features stops in Atlanta, Nashville, Dallas, Kansas City, Toronto, and many more North American cities. It concludes in Los Angeles on October 7th at the Hollywood Bowl. Check out the full list of dates below.

Pre-orders for the upcoming album are currently ongoing.
