Toad the Wet Sprocket is back

See also

A full 16 years after 1997’s "Coil," Toad the Wet Sprocket released a new studio album, titled “New Constellation,” in 2013. This Santa Barbara band continues to create emotionally gripping music, led by vocalist and primary songwriter, Glen Phillips.

Life has not always been easy for Phillips, however, and the singer has fought a long time with depression. Fortunately, this struggle did not keep him from writing some of the most memorable songs of the 90s. These hits included “Walk on the Ocean,” “All I Want,” “Fall Down” and “Something’s Always Wrong.”

It’s surprising to hear Phillips tell some of the stories behind these various chart-toppers. In some cases, such as “Walk on the Ocean,” the lyrics were not nearly as calculated as one might imagine. It’s great to have Toad the Wet Sprocket back making new music together. The act could have just as easily gone into nostalgia mode, as so many hit makers have done.
