SANTA BARBARA, CA – Toad The Wet Sprocket – the trio of founding members Glen Phillips, Todd Nichols, and Dean Dinning – is still making new music and touring with the same spirit of unwavering independence that started it all over three decades ago. This year marks a new milestone in their journey with the 30th anniversary of the 1994 platinum selling album Dulcinea. Limited edition merchandise to celebrate the release is available at the Toad The Wet Sprocket online store.

The band recently spoke with People Magazine about the significance of Dulcinea, their fourth studio album, and upcoming plans to celebrate throughout 2024 on tour headlining, co-headlining with the Gin Blossoms and opening for Barenaked Ladies throughout the summer and fall.

“The band has been in such a better head space,” Glen Phillips tells People Magazine. “I think we have grown and are enjoying each other’s company more. And so, that translates a lot better to the audience. They can feel that.”

He continues, “I learned a lot from Barenaked Ladies on just how to be in a band and how to be with each other and how to lift people up. They are really good role models on just how to be on the road.”

Many of the songs from Dulcinea are featured in the band’s live and limited edition Dulcinea merchandise and Greatest Hits vinyl is available exclusively at the Toad The Wet Sprocket online store. The Dulcinea vinyl reissue sold-out in two weeks. Fans can also join the band ahead of the show as part of the VIP programs at shows.

ABOUT DULCINEA | After the success of fear (1991) the band re-teamed with producer Gavin MacKillop to record an album inspired by the sound that they had developed from their recent touring. Released in 1994, Dulcinea was certified platinum by the RIAA. The album features the single “Fall Down” (with a video directed by Samuel Bayer of “Smells Like Teen Spirit” fame) that spent 6 weeks at number one on the Billboard Modern Rock chart and “Something’s Always Wrong” that was featured in the movie “Fear” and had a groundbreaking music video that put the band on the Home Shopping Network selling themselves to the lowest bidder (WATCH). More recently, in 2023, “Fall Down” was featured on the Showtime series “Billions”, with the song showing up on the Shazam charts the following week.

Toad The Wet Sprocket share in the kind of musical chemistry that can only come from meeting in high school and writing, recording, and touring on albums over the course of time. After Bread & Circus, they followed with Pale in 1990, fear in ’91, Dulcinea in 1994, and Coil in 1997, as well as some compilations along the way. Their most recent releases are Starting Now (2021), New Constellation (2013), and EP The Architect of Ruin (2015). In 2023, they released the remastered greatest hits album All You Want.
