Wallows is an American alternative rock band based in Los Angeles composed of Dylan Minnette, Braeden Lemasters, and Cole Preston. The band began releasing songs independently in April 2017 starting with “Pleaser”, which reached number two on the Spotify Global Viral 50 chart. In 2018, they signed a record deal with Atlantic Records and released their major label debut extended play Spring. Their debut studio album, Nothing Happens, was released in 2019 and included the single “Are You Bored Yet?” In 2020, their second extended play Remote was released and included singles “Nobody Gets Me (Like You)” and “Virtual Aerobics”.
On February 1, 2019, Wallows released the single “Are You Bored Yet?” featuring Clairo. This song is a part of their debut album, Nothing Happens, released on March 22, 2019. A subsequent music video was also released on this day with a cameo of Noah Centineo and Kaitlyn Dever.
Wallows embarked on another leg of their Nothing Happens Tour in February 2020, a continuation of their 2019 Nothing Happens Tour, for 15 additional stops. The band partnered with local, non-profit charities in each of the cities in this leg of the tour such as Project Lazarus and the LGBT Center of Raleigh. Before each show, the band posted a list of donatable items for their attendees to bring (with the incentive of donating being a free Wallows pin) on their social media accounts, and were able to garner a plethora of items to donate after each show. In an interview with 97X, a Tampa radio station, Minnette remarked that the nonprofit organization they partnered with in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Handy Inc., shared that Wallows fans had brought an equivalent of five months worth of supplies to the band’s show.
