Wallows, comprised of Dylan Minnette, Braeden Lemasters, and Cole Preston, continues their hot streak with their latest single, "Calling After Me." The exhilarating single features summery, upbeat instrumentation and lyrics that depict a storyline of a newly forming relationship growing in secret. The song explores the toxicity and rush of love and secrecy.

"Calling After Me" starts with catchy percussion patterns, sun-soaked guitar riffs, and grooving bass lines. Amid the infectious production, the narrator asks his secret partner teasing questions, like "Who were you kissing in the back of your car?" and "Who's the one, the one who got away?" As the verse progresses, he recognizes and hints to his partner that they both know the depth of their relationship, which is beyond a secret, suggesting that they should take their relationship to the next level.

In the earworm chorus, Minette's rich vocals reveal that he doesn't think he'll "last another night." He anticipates that whenever he looks into his partner's eyes, it'll intensify their emotional bond and relationship, making it hard for them to resist pursuing him. "We like that 'Calling After Me' is pretty fun and light on its feet for a Wallows song," the band shares about the new track. "We're excited for people to hear it and play it live this summer."

The band will also embark on the biggest global tour of their career, starting later this summer. After announcing their upcoming album Model, slated for May 24, Wallows unveiled the news of a global tour with an accompanying eerie short film directed by Nina Ljeti, starring all three members and BENEE, who is set to open for the band's North American dates.

"I can confidently say this is the first time that I'm really anticipating a tour announcement," Minette tells Variety of the band's 38-city tour comprised of their first-ever headlining performances at arenas including Madison Square Garden and the Kia Forum. "I'm more nervous than ever — but not in a negative way. I know it's going to go well. I know our fans show up, but I haven't been able to stop thinking about it every day."
