Wolfmother MTV Music Awards

So, what did they play? Oh, only one of the new songs! Back Round! And the news is that they will shortly release the single for free on their website, www.wolfmother.com. Not sure when that will be, sources suggest soon.

Click here for more including videos of the Back Round performance and the MTV interview:

Here’s the interview from the event (though do you think the woman has ever heard of Wolfmother before??):

And here’s the performance of Back Round (not Background as stated on many sites covering this event).

Sounds awesome, huh? Well okay, it’s clear that the band still needs a bit of time to gel and knock out perfect tunes live, but I’m still excited.

    i still don’t know dude…i still way too connected with the original lineup, and the original sound. i guess we’ll just have to wait and see..

    This is like borderline metal.

    Sounds awesome to me! i cannot wait until they release the song! the whole line-up is kind of intimidating though, its really a whole professional thing now, with Chris and Myles i still had the feeling that it was some kind mysterical underground band founded by friends… and i miss the organ at the beginning of the song, im quite sure i remembered Chris starting with the organ… i sure hope the organ remains a dominant factor in the band

  14. pyramidaddict on March 30th, 2009 11:34 pm

    that was f-ing awsome, the solo was a bit….meh…but other than that it was great

    hey guys I can’t get on to the forums, everytime I go in it says “Your submission could not be processed because the token has expired.
    Please push the back button and reload the previous window”.

    And whenever I push the back button it just reloads that page.

    Is anyone else having the same problem. (and yes I realize this shouldn’t be a comment for this area but I can’t get onto the forums as already stated.)

    Thanks guys

    I like the new single. It’s smash. Can’t effing wait, CANT EFFING WAIT for an album. So many fans here in south florida. All i do is jam to wolfmother in my car and room… my friends at first said,, .. “theyre too much, theyre too crazy”… but after listening some more and more, they’ve COMPLETELY turned aroundand have turned into wolfmother fans. 8 out of 10 of my friends like them who originally didn’t… my friend who hated them at first, is now a huge fan. posters, shirts and all. I believe wolfmother is the greatest band of our present day, hands down. Anyone who argues needs to shut their trap. Listen and shut up. Smash.

    I think this is what the lyrics are from the single…. feel free to help out.

    Hey I’m coming out, right now
    Can you tell me if the people leave the light on long, right now
    I’m coming home
    It’s been too long
    Since the light went gone
    I’m coming home

    Coming out, coming out just to see you
    Realize that it’s all in front of you
    Realize it’s all you ever knew
    Realize it’s all you ever do
    oh, i’m coming back around
    Oh, it won’t be long

    It looks like someone has been in here before
    They left still thinking they could still have it all

    A ticket sold and a man got rich
    with a seven year itch
    for all those ivolved fell over
    in their own ditch

    and you need eyes to see on parallels
    seeing all things as similar
    and those who deny chance
    have no chance at all

    oh, i’m coming back around
    oh, it won’t be long

    this song is available on their website already, the studio version, and it’s badass!

  19. Frank on March 31st, 2009 5:29 am

    I just downloaded the new single…fucking. amazing.

    thats more like it Wolfmother.

  20. Scott on March 31st, 2009 6:28 am

    Jesus I love Wolfmother but the song could not sound more like Black Sabbath and they quite frankly don’t compare.

  21. The Popular Opinion on March 31st, 2009 1:12 pm

    you should hand the website over to your beloved COTW

  22. Carson on March 31st, 2009 8:56 pm

    New track is fantastic. Can’t wait for the album!

  23. Fwer on March 31st, 2009 10:01 pm

    What luck! I happen to be waring my Wolfmother T-shirt today! Best news in a long time

  24. Josh on April 1st, 2009 1:40 am

    I think Im going to take back what I said after hearing the studio version

  25. a on April 1st, 2009 3:12 am

    Good song, not as good as minds eye, colossal, joker & the thief or woman though, but sill FUKIN AWSOME

  26. Jake on April 2nd, 2009 2:41 am

    I like the new song a lot except the intro is kinda… hmmm … cheesy. The rest of the song is awesome although it doesnt compare to colossal or pyramid.

  27. Roller on April 4th, 2009 9:51 am

    Sick!!! Can’t wait for the next album!! :D I just got to see them live!!

  28. Cha on April 5th, 2009 3:20 pm

    Wuaa, awesome. Intense indeed : D
    Can’t wait for the next album!

    But I miss the old Wolfmother, anyways, glad they stuck with the name. : D
