Today we have Aussies finest, the classic rock band WOLFMOTHER, in 2005 they released the eponymous debut, a record that was exactly what rock & roll needed: a meaty, beaty, big and bouncy genre resuscitator that not only broke through to the mainstream, but broke big.
WOLFMOTHER was certified Gold in the States and Triple-Platinum in the band’s Australian homeland. Lead single “Woman” hit top ten on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks Chart and won a Grammy for “Best Hard Rock Performance.” Their songs became ubiquitous, appearing in films (Shrek, Jackass, The Hangover), video games (Need For Speed, MLB: The Show, Saints Row) and television commercials (Apple, Mitsubishi). Led by vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, WOLFMOTHER have amassed a global fanbase, played to packed-house crowds around the world, delivered show-stealing sets at star-studded festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Reading and Leeds, and have been invited to share stages with rock icons Aerosmith and AC/DC. For their induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame, Led Zeppelin personally invited Wolfmother as their guests (the band showed their appreciation by delivering an electrifying cover of “Communication Breakdown”).
But ten years after their arrival, WOLFMOTHER have returned with what could arguably be called their best work to date. With "Victorious", Stockdale once again arrives right on time: in an era dominated by single-song downloads, this is an album worthy of repeat listens from top to bottom. Following 2009’s "Cosmic Egg" and 2014’s "New Crown", the much-anticipated "Victorious" is an electrifying testament to the range and depth of Stockdale’s artistry. Recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with two-time Grammy winning producer Brendan O’Brien (PEARL JAM, SOUNDGARDEN, Bruce Springsteen), the songs are edgy, inventive and uncompromising and rank among the band’s best ever.
WOLFMOTHER will perform at Park Stage today, Sunday 6/30, 6:30pm-7:30pm
