Check it out, the official Wolfmother site has a new look – and I have to say, it’s a damn site easier to navigate around than the last one! It’s got a much clearer listing of tour dates (though not as good as ours, in my opinion!) with a nice feature of being able to add a comment on each. The News section is also much clearer and more ‘blog’ style. Photos and Videos sections are still being worked on.
Also highlighted on the site this evening are a number of acoustic performances and signings – if you are in the area, check them out! Details after the jump. [Read more]

And of course in various places around Europe too! Although those from the country of the Red Sun have had a two day head start! And those from United Kingdom have to wait until the 26th, and those in the US of A have to wait until the 27th!
I’ve already got my iTunes copy and Deluxe edition (and waiting for the vinyl to come in).
If you didn’t pre-order it on iTunes, you would have noticed you’re not able to get the Jimi Hendrix cover of “If 6 Was 9″, however, you’re in luck because another edition of Cosmic Egg has appeared on iTunes as the “standard edition” of Cosmic Egg with bonus tracks: “Sundial (Acoustic)”, “Don’t Let It Bring You Down” (a Neil Young cover) and “Mannish Boy” – another Jimi Hendrix cover. Those who DID pre-order the album on iTunes can still get these bonus tracks indivually.
What is most exciting now though is the email Wolfmother has just sent through it’s mailing list.
The bell does toll, the train has left the station and thy day hath arrived, Cosmic Egg the triumphant 2nd album by Wolfmother, is out today and available at all friendly physical and cyber retailers.
Cosmic Egg represents a giant leap forward for Wolfmother from their self-titled debut record and a bold step into the unknown. Shamelessly running the gauntlet of heaviosity from melancholic, piano-led laments to thundering heaving rock, Cosmic Egg shows reveals every colour in the Wolfmother rainbow as a vivid, blindingly good time.
Preceded by the ripping first single New Moon Rising, the 12 track album is now available in an array of wondrous formats. You can pick up a copy of Cosmic Egg as a standard 12 track CD, a deluxe 16 track digipak CD, double gatefold vinyl and of course, as a deluxe digital version with a bonus track through iTunes. If that isn’t enough for you, there will be a lush box set to follow in the new year.
A lush box set?! I’ve already bought three editions of the album already! (iTunes, Deluxe and Vinyl) And the prospect of a box set is making it look like it’s going to be 4!
We’ll have to wait until the new year for it’s release, but even with a new Wolfmother album already in my hands, I’m still just as excited (damn you good marketing strategy!).
More news as it comes!

At 9am tomorrow morning, tickets go on sale for the UK tour in January. You might have already ordered in the presale, but if not, go and grab your tickets quick as I expect some venues will sell out fast.

ps – after watching the band rock London’s Coronet last night (my 4th time), I can highly recommend seeing them!
