Dishwalla Set to Release 5th Studio Album 'Juniper Road'
The platinum-selling, award-winning band with a career spanning over 2 decades and 5 albums.
California Alternative Rock mainstays Dishwalla will release their 5th studio album, Juniper Road, through Pavement Entertainment worldwide digitally on June 16 and CD on July 14, 2017.
In early 2017, Dishwalla launched a successful Pledge Music campaign in order for their strong diehard fan base to get an early taste of the album and other unique opportunities. The campaign was so successful that the band quickly realized they needed assistance in delivering their new album, Juniper Road, to meet the demand on a global level. The band inked a deal with Pavement Entertainment and are preparing for the worldwide physical and digital release.
The album will mark the band's first full-length studio release in over 10 years. As they say, "All good things come to those who wait," and Juniper Road stands true to those words. Blending elements of classic sounding Dishwalla anthems along with a modern edge, the band truly touches on every aspect of growth and stays true to its roots.
Throughout the '90s, Dishwalla made a name for themselves starting with their highly acclaimed debut album, Pet Your Friends. The album lit up the charts and the airwaves in 1996 with their smash hit single, "Counting Blue Cars". With a gritty attitude and edgy musicianship reminiscent of past musical legends, Dishwalla's Alt-Rock sound was enough for music fans to crown "Counting Blue Cars" one of the most requested songs of that year. The track earned the band a Billboard Award for "Best Rock Song" for 1996 as well as two ASCAP Awards for "Rock Track of the Year" in both 1996 and 1997, driving Pet Your Friends to sell more than a million copies worldwide.
Dishwalla continued their success by touring heavily throughout the late '90s and the early 2000s, and released further successful albums in the likes of Opaline (2002), Live...Greetings From The Flow State (2003), and their self-titled album, Dishwalla (2005).
Over the span of their 2 decade-long career, Dishwalla has survived the usual drama of personnel and record label changes. Dishwalla's music helped define the sound of a generation. Their music is timeless, and the recurrent airplay of "Counting Blue Cars" on Triple A and Hot A.C. radio is a testament to this. Touted by fans and industry alike as one of the best live bands to come out of the '90s, Dishwalla is back with an amazing story to tell. Catch them on tour all summer on various dates, with the likes of Fuel and Marcy Playground.
