Toad the Wet Sprocket, more:

Toad the Wet Sprocket first gained attention in the late 1980s with their debut album, Bread and Circus, originally self-released on cassette in 1988. Their sophomore release, Pale, was recorded independently in 1989. Both records were released by Columbia Records in 1989 and 1990 respectively.

Toad’s third studio album, Fear, followed in 1991 and included their multi-format iconic hit singles “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean” was certified RIAA Platinum and further solidified the band’s popularity and mainstream success.

In 1994 the band released Dulcinea, which included songs “Something’s Always Wrong,” and “Fall Down,” both staples at alternative and mainstream radio, that helped Toad to earn their second RIAA certified Platinum Album and make Toad the Wet Sprocket a household name.

In 1995 Toad released In Light Syrup, a collection of rarities that included the hit “Good Intentions,” which was featured on the Platinum-selling “Friends” soundtrack.

The band took a break in the late 1990s, with the members pursuing solo projects. However, the group reunited in 2006 and have continued to perform together ever since.

In 2013, Toad released their first album in 16 years, New Constellation, which was funded by their fans as one of the most successful music Kickstarter campaigns in history. The album includes fan-favorite tracks “The Moment,” “California Wasted” and “Enough” that showcase the bands evolution and versatility. The album received critical acclaim and was followed by a successful tour.

Toad’s most recent studio album. Starting Now (2021), marked a return to form for the band with its catchy melodies, introspective lyrics, and signature harmonies. The release was well-received and showcased the band’s signature sound while also exploring new sonic territories. Songs like “Transient Whales,” “Starting Now” and “Hold On” serve as core performance tracks at live shows and fan favorites.

Throughout their career, Toad the Wet Sprocket has remained humble and grateful for the support of their fans and is honored to continue creating music that resonates with them.

Megan Slankard:

San Francisco indie-rocker nerd Megan Slankard and her band, The Wreckage, have independently sold over 40,000 copies of five self-released albums and are currently planning the release of a brand-new project. The record, co-produced with Nashville producer Alex Wong, (Delta Rae, Vienna Teng, Elizabeth & The Catapult), will showcase new sides of Megan’s music, balancing delightfully belligerent rock and roll with cinematic soundscapes of orchestral instruments and robot harmonies.
