Wolfmother were an Australian hard rock band. Formed in 2000 by vocalist and guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist and keyboardist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett, the band later became a four-piece and most recently a five-piece composed of Stockdale, Ian Peres (bass, keyboards), Elliott Hammond (keyboards, percussion), Vin Steele (rhythm guitar) and Hamish Rosser (drums). Wolfmother released their self-titled debut album in October 2005, which reached number three on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart. The album was also a critical success, winning the 2005 J Award and the 2006 ARIA Awards for Best Breakthrough Album and Best Rock Album. "Woman", a single from the album, won the band a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock Performance in 2007.
What’s that old adage? “When you assume, you make an ass out of you and me.” Yeah, well in this case, my assumption didn’t hurt anyone. In hindsight, it was a tad lazy – and perhaps made an ass outta me – but certainly not harmful in any way. Here’s the thing: I got an [...]
Wolfmother just recently premiered the video for their smashing heavy-funky groove single “White Feather“. Very simple and straight forward, the video basically features the band jamming crunchy riffs like there’s no tomorrow on a cross-fading dawning lighting. Heavy, heavy stuff! White Feather is off Wolfmother’s latest studio effort “Cosmic Egg” out now.
I’m sure I’ve mentioned at least a couple thousand times before how stoked I am about Wolfmother‘s sophomore release. For the last week or so, Wolfmother’s new album, “Cosmic Egg“, has been streaming in its entirety down at the band’s myspace, and, so far, there hasn’t been a day in which I’m not heavily streaming [...]
Band officials just recenly unveiled the cover art for Wolfmother‘s upcoming “Cosmic Egg.” “That’s a darn big ass egg alright“, says the stoked young boy in the bushes, staring enigmatically. In the land down under, however, nothing is surprising anymore. Enough with the comic eggs though, I want heavy and mind blowing cosmic jams! I’ve [...]
Photo by Kai-Otto Melau A rare and recent media engagement from Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale has brought news of a second album. With their eyes set on a September release, the recently reformed Australian outfit has reportedly been laying down tracks in a L.A. studio, with three new members to replace Chris Moss and Myles [...]
One of my very favourite things I’ve seen on Youtube over the years was Mike Patton, giving an interview at Lollapalooza. He talks about his upcoming projects – some Italian music, and probably a record consisting solely of him gurgling on some turps, while jabbing a violin into some children’s eyes (although he neglects to [...]
Last year I was really sad to hear Wolfmother more or less broke up, since the ’70s-reminiscent hard rock trio became a one man show, after the bassist and drummer left, leaving frontman Andew Stockdale to himself. Well, after some time now, Andrew kept word to his promise and reformed the band under a new [...]
Today is a sad day for Wolfmother fans around the world. A few hours ago the Aussie three piece band just announced on their myspace blog, that Chris Ross (bass/keyboard) and Myles Heskett (drums) have departed Wolfmother, leaving guitarist/frontman Andrew Stockdale for the lonely wolf. Here’s how the post went on. Grammy Award winning rock [...]
