More Album Details Revealed in New Interview

December 31, 2012 by  

Speaking in a new interview conducted by Australian live music website scenestr, Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale has spoken in more depth about the recording process of the band’s upcoming third album.

Most surprising to hear, perhaps, is that the album (tentatively titled Gatherings) features four drummers and three bassists, many more than have officially been a part of the band. Former drummer Will Rockwell-Scott – who was announced to have left the band in February 2012 – is believed to be joining current sticksman Hamish Rosser – who moved from The Vines to replace him – on the credits list, but with Ian Peres the constant bassist since second album Cosmic Egg it is difficult to ascertain who else has contributed in this capacity.

As previously reported, the as-yet officially untitled album, currently scheduled for a March 2013 release, is being largely self-produced by the frontman, who describes the collection as “a travelling record” based on its on-and-off recording process, which spans three studios.
