Over the last few days, Wolfmother have been announced for performances at numerous festivals in the United States later this year.
Adding to their current string of appearances at festivals such as Rock on the Range in the summer, the band will play at LIVE 105’s BFD in Mountain View, California on June 4th and 91X’s X-Fest in San Diego California the next day, and will later appear at Dutch festival Lowlands on August 20th.
Undoubtedly one of the highlights of the band’s touring schedule, Wolfmother’s show at Lowlands in Biddinghuizen is their second, having played there back in 2006. This year, the festival sees high-profile appearances from Muse, Biffy Clyro and more.
Wolfmother will also play at the TuneIn Sessions Showcase, part of the South by Southwest festival, in Austin, Texas next week (March 17th). More details are available here.

These lyrics have been taken from the booklet included with the album, then adapted by myself while listening to the songs.
What does adapted mean? Essentially, I put them into more logical, readable paragraphs and also copied bits that are repeated. Hence, they should be 100% spot on. Enjoy!

Following on from last week’s news of its early chart positions, Victorious has now debuted on the various Billboard charts in the United States and Canada.
Firstly, the album enters the Billboard 200 (the main albums chart in the US) at number 71. Some have labelled this a disappointment due to the much higher peaks of Wolfmother and Cosmic Egg — #22 and #16, respectively — although it remains much higher than New Crown‘s #160.
In Canada, Victorious has debuted at number 33 on the Billboard national albums chart. Again, this is slightly lower than Wolfmother (#29) and Cosmic Egg (#12), but a top 40 result is nonetheless a highly respectable achievement.
On Billboard‘s more specific charts, Victorious has registered the following debut positions:
- Top Alternative Albums: #9 (4 lower than Cosmic Egg)
- Top Hard Rock Albums: #2 (a new record for the band)
- Top Rock Albums: #11 (5 lower than Cosmic Egg)
- Top Tastemaker Albums: #8 (6 lower than Cosmic Egg)

The first batch of chart positions for Victorious have been published and the news is mainly brilliant! The album has surpassed the band’s previous highest positions in several territories, including both Belgian regions (Flanders: #35, Wallonia: #49), Germany (#9) and Italy (#92).
Similarly, the release has equalled the band’s previous record in the UK of #25 (set by Wolfmother in 2006), where it has also topped the Rock & Metal Albums Chart for the first time in their career. In the Netherlands, the album debuted at #20 (in between the peaks of Wolfmother and Cosmic Egg).
The news is slightly less positive in the band’s home country, though, where Victorious has debuted at number 17 on the ARIA Albums Chart. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the position won’t improve in the coming weeks, but both Wolfmother and Cosmic Egg debuted at their peak positions of #3 upon release. Nonetheless, charting within the top 20 is obviously good news!
Many charts are yet to be published and will come to light in the coming days, including other regions in Europe, New Zealand, and the range of US and Canadian Billboard charts.
