Southern California alt-rock trio Wallows quickly established themselves as a band to watch in 2018, with the release of their debut album Nothing Happens Out Now on Atlantic Records. Recorded at Los Angeles’ Sargent Studios, the album sees Wallows reunited with Grammy award-winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Alvvays, Future Islands) and captures the band’s journey towards adulthood through 11 intimate, introspective tracks (see track list below). Wallows offer a first glimpse into Nothing Happens with lead single and video “Are You Bored Yet? (feat. Clairo).”
The trippy video, directed by Drew Kirsch (Louis The Child, John Legend, Quinn XCII), features Wallows in a retro karaoke bar surrounded by friends and familiar faces including special appearances by Noah Centineo (To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Sierra Burgess Is A Loser), Brian Jones (Vampire Weekend, Human Natural), and Nina Ljeti (1980s Horror Film II music video director), among others.

The track is available instantly upon pre-ordering Nothing Happens here: https://Wallows.lnk.to/AreYouBoredYet.
Over the past year, Wallows released their debut EP Spring, amassed over 40 million career streams, sold out a headlining tour, played major festivals from Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits to Camp Flog Gnaw and Life is Beautiful, and made their TV debut onThe Late Late Show with James Corden. Idolator named single “Pictures of Girls” one of their 100 Best Singles of 2018, declaring it “stood out like a sore thumb in 2018 for all the right reasons,” Stereogum called track “1980s Horror Film” an “openly melodic acoustic guitar ballad that gradually unfolds into a thing of beauty with some help from indie-world superproducer John Congleton,” and Ones To Watch raved “Wallows’ unrestrained brand of indie alt-rock arrives at the perfect intersection between admiration for the alternative ‘90s music scene and newfound heartfelt indie rock for a mixture that’s not quite like anything else.”
Wallows’ live shows are not to be missed; members Braeden Lemasters, Cole Preston, and Dylan Minnette have been playing music together for nearly a decade, and the connection is evident in their incredible, high-energy performances. Following album release, the band will launch their Nothing Happens World Tour with their Coachella debut on Saturday, April 13 and April 20. Wallows will make stops in major cities across the U.S. and Canada, including San Francisco, Dallas, New York, Toronto, and Chicago, before heading overseas for their first-ever European tour (see below for full list of dates).
