Third Album Complete, Set for Release

February 25, 2013 by  

According to Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale, the band’s upcoming third album has been completed and is ready for release. Tweeting earlier today (February 25th), the vocalist, guitarist, songwriter and producer proclaimed that “This record is so done! I’m just trying to jump through the hoops to share this music with the world!”, bringing a close to the latest chapter in Wolfmother’s history.

Wolfmother — who have been through several personnel changes over the last few years — have been working on the follow-up to their 2009 second album Cosmic Egg since at least March 2011, when Stockdale, Ian Peres (bass, keyboards), and former members Aidan Nemeth (rhythm guitar) and Will Rockwell-Scott (drums) commenced recording in Australia. The album has been a long time coming though, with sporadic updates over the last two years claiming varying points of completion.

The band currently features rhythm guitarist Vin Steele, multi-instrumentalist Elliott Hammond and drummer Hamish Rosser in addition to Stockdale and Peres, although as revealed late last year the record will feature three bassists and four drummers, one of which is said to be Cosmic Egg drummer Dave Atkins. The most recently revealed title is Gatherings, although this is yet to be confirmed as the final name of the album.

Wolfmother.net will have more details when they become available, so keep checking back or head on over to our forums and our Facebook page for up-to-the-minute updates!

Update 1: Andrew has just tweeted the following: “A release is coming together, God bless iTunes for allowing spontaneity in the musical landscape of the world… this sh€:t is happening!”
