SANTA BARBARA, CALIF. – In 2010, Dean Dinning, Randy Guss, Todd Nichols and Glen Phillips – collectively known as Toad The Wet Sprocket – officially reformed and began writing songs for their first studio album of new material since 1997’s Coil. On tour this fall, the band will preview two new songs in their live set.
Also that year, the group regained ownership of their song catalog and with Primary Wave Music as their publisher, began work on a “best of” album of new recordings produced by Glen Phillips, Todd Nichols and Dean Dinning. The resulting 11 song album titled All You Want features their chart-topping single “All I Want,” and fan favorites “Good Intentions,” “Walk on the Ocean,” “Something’s Always Wrong,” and “Fall Down.”
In celebration of All You Want, the band took on a 65-date U.S. tour in 2011 (the most they had played since 1997). The album is currently sold at shows, and also available on i-Tunes and other online outlets including the band’s website, as well as traditional record stores. Tracks from All You Want have been used in several recent TV shows, including “Homeland” on Showtime, and “Missing” on ABC.
Toad The Wet Sprocket is currently working on recording an album of new material at home in Santa Barbara. The album is being produced by Phillips, Nichols, and Dinning. Fans can preview two of the new tracks on their upcoming tour dates.
