Thursday 12/29/22 10pm ET: Feature LP: Wallflowers – (Breach) (2000)

Breach (stylized as (Breach)) is the third studio album by The Wallflowers. The album’s first single was “Sleepwalker”, the video of which poked fun at lead-singer Jakob Dylan’s “rock star” status following the success of Bringing Down the Horse. Released October 10, 2000. Guests on the album included Elvis Costello, who performed vocals on “Murder 101”. Despite good reviews, the album failed to follow the commercial success of Bringing Down the Horse and was seen as somewhat of a commercial failure. “Breach” peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200 and was certified Gold.
