September Album …

January 1, 2009 by  

According to the Herald Sun (Australian newspaper/website), the next Wolfmother album could be released in September 2009. Here’s the snippet of information:

Despite being reduced to one original member, Grammy-winning hard rock act Wolfmother is expected to release an album in September.

Singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale has been working on demos in Los Angeles and is set to start recording early in the year.

With the shocking news about the split, rumours of new members, mis-rumours of new members, and basically no news at all from Wolfmother or their management, 2008 has been an annus horribilis for Wolfmother.

Although my initial reaction to a September release was bad (very bad as I read about it while inebriated after New Year’s Eve!), my hungover reflection is that at least it looks like some progress is being made. I had heard from Wolfmother’s management recently that Andrew has been spending a lot of time in his home studio trying out new sounds and material and that he hopes to make some announcements in the new year. With this news that recording is planned in the new year, that makes for a more positive looking 2009. Whether any new members have been identified is anyone’s guess, and with the little countdown timer to Clipsal currently reading 79 days they haven’t got long to confirm a line up (my guess is that that gig will be primarily old material).

So here’s a big ‘fuck you’ to 2008 and a ‘here’s hoping’ to 2009. Hope you all have a good one too.

    I really hope it’s true this time! Andrew needs his time to reorganise the mass ofcourse, but i really hope the arrival of the new album will not delay any longer! fucking sick of waiting! Wolfmother is the only band of this time that gives me a big bouncing boner!

    here’s to Andrew!
