Wolfmother to release new material?

August 27, 2010 by  

According to a post on the official Wolfmother forums (which have NOTHING on the WM.net forums!) by the band’s very own Mr. Stockdale, the band are planning to release some new studio material before the end of the year! Whether this will happen or not, however, given Wolfmother’s history of delays and false promises, remains to be seen, so take this news with a slight pinch of salt.

Interestingly, Andrew’s post was aimed at fans in an interrogative sense, asking for opinions on what medium of release should be issued and what kind of recording should be sought. The full post reads as follows:

“Hello All,

We are considering recording an E.P / Album and releasing it later in the year. So there are two ways of doing this, we are thinking of continuing in the home studio the same way as we did Back Round and Fell Down A Hole, or sticking with the big Producer/Engineer classic studio approach. This next record is definitly going to be a a fast natural process, mixing up live takes and extended instrumental pieces.

Something gets lost in laying down drums then tracking every instrument and layering up a record, it’s a safe big album approach though it’s hard to find nuaince and expression within these recordings….

Just throwing it out there,

What are the people who listen to Wolfmother looking for, should the creators lead without concern for their audience? Either way I’m interested to hear peoples opinions…

Andrew”

    This album will really the make or break with Wolfmother. I deeply love the debut and its one of my favorite albums of all time, right in their with Exile, Zep II and Fun House for me. But Cosmic Egg was a horrific disaster. Way too much below average material weighed down the good material and totally depressed me as I had been looking forward to it immensly. But they need to really get back to how great that first album was. One thing I know is, great bands don’t sophmore slump. But Wolfmother will have to be the really great band to comeback from a sophmore slump and make another great album.

    I think that cosmic egg was pretty amazing. Im really looking forward to your next album and think that you guys should do what you feel like doing in your next album. Nevermind what the fans think because that might make you guys play stuff that you arent into.. wich will probably makes a pretty crap album..
    Cheers.
