Toad the Wet Sprocket

Toad the Wet Sprocket was a staple of American alt-rock radio during the early 1990s, thanks to platinum-selling records like 1994's Dulcinea and chart-topping hits like "Fall Down." Frontman Glen Phillips was just 15 years old when the band formed in 1986 in Santa Barbara, California. Bread & Circus, the band's debut album, was released two years later, introducing the group's blend of jangling folk, rock, and pop. After signing with Columbia Records and releasing Pale in 1990, the group found commercial success with 1991's fear, a platinum-certified record whose biggest hits — "All I Want" and "Walk on the Ocean" — both reached the Top 20 of the Billboard Hot 100. 1994's Dulcinea also went platinum, thanks to songs like "Fall Down" (which reached Number 1 on Modern Rock Tracks) and "Something's Always Wrong" (which peaked at Number 9 on the same chart). A gold-certified collection of rarities and B-sides, In Light Syrup, was released in 1995, featuring the Top 40 track "Good Intentions." After "Come Down" peaked at number 2 on the Adult Alternative Airplay chart in 1997, though, Toad the Wet Sprocket's commercial reign ended, and the group broke up in July 1998. Glen Phillips launched a solo career shortly thereafter. The band began touring together again in 2006, then formally reunited in 2010. New Constellation, the musicians' first album together in more than 15 years, was released in 2013. Longtime drummer Randy Guss left the lineup in 2020, but the band continued releasing music in his absence, starting with 2021's Starting Now.
