Wolfmother announce new album, headlining North American tour

Posted by on November 20, 2015

Australian hard rockers Wolfmother didn’t do much after their 2008 record Cosmic Egg until they pulled a Beyonce and released their 2014’s New Crown without telling anyone until the day it was released, so the band want to keep their momentum and just announced their plans to release a new record next year. At least they’re letting us know in advance this time.

The band unveiled the details for their upcoming album titled Victorious and is set to be released on February 19th 2016 via Universal Music Enterprises and, you can actually hear not one, but two tracks off it, “Victorious” and “City Lights.” That’s not all, the band also announce their plans to run across North America the same month the album will be released. Frontman Andrew Stockdale comments about the record:

“Back in the early days, I’d play guitar, bass, and drums and then present the ideas to the band and we’d work on the arrangement together, I thought it would be cool to get back to demoing ideas by myself and playing everything. It’s a good way to do things because it can make the style more cohesive.”

    Wolfmother is still together? I thought Stockdale broke them up. He had a good solo album that was basically Wolfmother, so I guess this shouldn’t surprise. They are a good outfit that has the power of modern heavy rockers and the chops of the classic heavy music of the ’60’s and ’70’s. And why not? Only a tone deaf hardass will refuse to admit that music of all genres has lost a huge part of its originality, thanks to an over reliance on subtexting everything, making bands stay within strict confines and repeat the same albums over and over again, and taking three or four years to put out the same mediocre crap.
    Yes, touring is where the money is now, and it’s understandable from a business standpoint to have bands play live as much as possible because ticket sales and merch sell better than the CD’s do.
    But a few bands still insist on being innovative, or at least know how to write good music. Mike Patton of Faith No More criticized Wolfmother for sounding too ’70’s but that is a hypocritical statement because FNM take their stylistic cues from funk, metal, and lots of other equally ’70’s sources. So rock on Wolfmother – Patton is not your boss.
