Stockdale Discusses Label Split and New Album

April 2, 2014 by  

In the wake of the release of the band’s new album New Crown, Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale recently added clarity to a number of situations surrounding recent events, including the change between the Wolfmother and Stockdale names, whether or not the band are still signed to a record label, and the recording and release process of the new record.

Speaking in an interview with Australian rock radio station Triple M, the vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter claimed that, despite many news sources dubbing Stockdale’s brief venture into solo territory as the band “breaking up”, in fact the Wolfmother moniker had only been “shelved”, explaining that it didn’t make complete sense to drop the Wolfmother name for too long.

Joined by long-standing fellow bandmate Ian Peres for the interview, Stockdale also revealed the news that many had suspected — that Wolfmother had left their record label, Universal — attributing this to the fact that it’s “a very long process getting anything done”, jokingly calling the situation “a total disaster”. The split from the label made it easier for the band to release New Crown much more quickly, and Stockdale has also stated that the trio has around 35 additional new songs ready for the next release.
