Stockdale Hits Back at Critics in New Interview
May 25, 2012 by
In a new interview with the singer-songwriter-guitarist conducted by English magazine Classic Rock, Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale has responded to claims that he is the one to blame for the drastic lineup changes suffered by the band, ensuring fans that the new album is on its way.
Speaking to the publication, Stockdale insists that he has “a good relationship with most people that have been in [Wolfmother]”, likening the departures of members to the patterns of people in everyday working life. The frontman has also cleared up the confusion surrounding record labels, claiming that “As of a few days [ago] that’s been resolved”, implying that Universal, Modular and Interscope will in fact be releasing the record.
Speaking about the album itself, Stockdale revealed the titles of two new songs: the first, tentatively titled ‘Ghetto’, has been submitted to the producers of the upcoming film Iron Man 3, with the hope that it will be included on the soundtrack; the second is ‘Year of the Dragon’, which has been on the radars of Wolfmother fanatics for almost a year now.
Wolfmother’s third album, currently untitled, is slated for a 2012 release, with Stockdale joking that to wait until 2013 “would just be wrong”.
