Album Number Three Named and Scheduled

December 17, 2012 by  

With Wolfmother-related news at its highest in months, some very big details regarding the follow-up to Cosmic Egg have finally been revealed by frontman Andrew Stockdale. The band’s third studio album is tentatively titled Gatherings, and is currently scheduled for release in March 2013.

Speaking in an interview published last week (December 12th), Stockdale revealed that after “about 15 months of on-and-off recording in about four or five different locations”, the group have eight of a planned 12 tracks for the album recorded, mixed, mastered, and ready for release. The currently accepted title of Gatherings is, in Stockdale’s own words, “probably the best we’ve got so far”, which suggests that a number of names are currently being considered for the release.

Andrew and his ever-changing gang have had their fair share of critics and naysayers over the past year or so, and the guitarist and singer is prepared to bear the brunt of the worst. “I don’t have an excuse at this point [after two albums] to put out a crap record”, he admits, identifying that the self-funded and -produced album is bound to draw some negative feedback. Despite this, Wolfmother’s second album Cosmic Egg received mainly favourable response from critics, and performed well in the charts.

    When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.

    Is there a way you can remove me from that service? Thank you!
