After performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night, Los Angeles rock trio Wallows stopped by the Paste Studio in New York City to promote their forthcoming LP. Their highly-anticipated debut album, Nothing Matters, will be out on March 22 via Atlantic Records.
Wallows played stripped-down versions of four songs, opening with “These Days” from their 2018 EP Spring. Then, they broke into the album track “Scrawny,” which is the first time it’s been performed live. The members of the band later discussed their love of Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones and The Beatles, working with producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Alvvays) on their new album (“John loves fucked up shit!”) and balancing music with acting. Both Dylan Minnette and Braeden Lemasters have played high-profile TV and movie roles (Minnette most notably on 13 Reasons Why and Lemasters on Men of a Certain Age).
The band closed with a bubbly rendition of “Drunk on Halloween” and a spunky performance of the lead single “Are You Bored Yet?” (which features Clairo on the studio version).
Wallows will make an appearance at Coachella and Shaky Knees festivals later this year, in addition to some North American and U.K. headlining dates.
