Just a quick post, guys: a second new song from the recently reformed Wolfmother has surfaced! Adding to ‘Tall Ships’, we now have ‘Heavyweight‘, which was recently performed at the Oxford Art Factory in Darlinghurst, Sydney on Monday 25th November. You can view the video of the performance here! Thanks to Wade Stewart for the video, who has also uploaded footage of ‘Tall Ships’ from the same show here.
Also, according to an anonymous source posting in the chat box (to the right), the third new song performed at one of the band’s recent shows was called ‘The Enemy Is in Your Mind’. It is assumed that all three tracks will appear on the band’s upcoming album, slated for release in spring 2014.

After returning as a trio less than two weeks ago, Wolfmother have performed their first new song since the release of frontman Andrew Stockdale’s solo album Keep Moving earlier this year.
The group — which now comprises guitarist and vocalist Stockdale, long-term bassist and keyboardist Ian Peres, and guitarist-turned-drummer Vin Steele — played their second show since returning on Sunday night (November 17th), performing a new song dubbed ‘Tall Ships’ which will presumably appear on the band’s upcoming third album (fourth if you count Stockdale’s ‘solo’ effort, on which all three current members performed). You can see video footage of the performance here.
Sunday night’s show took place at Brisbane’s Eatons Hill Hotel, notably one of the final venues played by the last incarnation of Wolfmother under the band’s name on New Year’s Eve 2012. Interestingly, the backdrop used for the show was the Wolfmother logo which surfaced in 2009 with the reformation of the band following the departure of original members Chris Ross and Myles Heskett.
The rest of the setlist is not yet known, but here at Wolfmother.net we will update you should any more new songs surface.

After another few months out of the spotlight, which included another lineup change and a few recording sessions for the next album, Wolfmother returned on Wednesday night (November 6th) with a performance in frontman Andrew Stockdale’s hometown of Byron Bay, New South Wales.
At their first show since July, the band presented their new compact lineup for the first time, which featured longstanding bassist and keyboardist Ian Peres, as well as former rhythm guitarist Vin Steele (who performed on ‘Stockdale solo album’ Keep Moving) taking the repeatedly-vacated spot on drums. This is the first time Wolfmother has performed as a trio since the original lineup broke up in 2008, although it is not known whether this is a permanent change or just a temporary fix.
Wednesday night’s show took place at The Northern, a popular gig venue for various iterations of the band over the years, and was free to all attending. There is no word yet on the next show, or the progress of the album, although this is expected to near completion at some point in the new year. Brief video of the new lineup’s performance of Wolfmother classic ‘White Unicorn’ is available here.
