Were it not for the COVID-19 pandemic, Wallows could very well be one of the biggest band around right now — and they’re poised for an even bigger breakthrough in 2022.

The Los Angeles-based indie/pop trio featuring actor Dylan Minnette of Netflix’s 13 Reasons Why, Braeden Lemasters, an actor known for roles such as Men of a Certain Age and Cole Preston, was prepared for a heavy tour presence before the pandemic put a hold on those plans, shows that would no doubt have helped elevate their already strong status that boasts a passionate online army of fans all across the world.

Wallows did release the Remote EP in early 2021, continuing the promising run of material that kicked into gear after a series of self-released EPs with 2019’s impressive debut album, Nothing Happens, with the track “Are You Bored Yet?” eclipsing 100 million Spotify streams.

On Thursday, the band returned with a new song, “I Don’t Want to Talk,” the first bit of new music from the group since the Remote EP. The music video showcases the band’s knack for entertainment with some Bob Dylan-inspired signage throughout:

Said Minnette of the song in a statement: “’I Don’t Want to Talk’ is ultimately a song about insecurities. Not only in yourself, but in this case, particularly in a relationship. It centers around the fear of being away from someone for too long and that ultimately allowing the other person’s head to be turned by someone else, and instead of expressing those fears, completely shutting down and not wanting to talk about it at all.”

Wallows will also embark on a big 2022 tour, which was also announced with the single release. The schedule of dates, with more details available at the band’s site:
