Jakob Dylan's Wallflowers are the latest group hitting the reunion trail. The '90s hitmakers are getting back together early next year, according to a Rolling Stone interview with Dylan. "I've got new songs and we've all been talking," Dylan said. "We've been trying to carve that time out for a while." The band, famous for "One Headlight" and other hits, will set to work on their first album since 2005. The Wallflowers last toured in 2009, before going on hiatus. "I never suggested we were breaking up," Dylan said. "We all felt we were losing the plot a little bit and we needed a break. And that year break becomes two years, then becomes three years, and before you know it five or six years go by pretty quickly." Dylan has been doing the solo thing in recent years and he said he's looking forward to playing with the band again. "I miss it," he said. "I'm happy to put the acoustic guitar down. That was something I wanted to do, but I never planned on hitting the road and just being the guy with a guitar out there. That never has been exciting to me. I came up loving bands and I want to be in one." Thanks for the report to Bryan Wawzenek, Gibson.com.

    Great array of bands there Suicidal--it's awesome to see that people on UG have varied musical tastes! I'm actually doing a blog entry about my Top 200 Albums of the past twenty years (1991-2011) and Bringing Down The Horse is easily in the top ten if not top five. I was so stoked to see this article because I was JUST looking at The Wallflowers' Wikipedia page to see if there was any new information about a possible album. If it's anything like Rebel, Sweetheart I'll be a happy camper man.

    They were/are HIGHLY undervalued in my opinion. They were a great band and could be again with all that talent.

    Scope out Rebel, Sweetheart and then Breach. The material is a little different but in my opinion it's still really good.
