The news is likely to leak very soon, so as soon as that happens we will confirm what we know.

Edit literally seconds after posting…

Okay, screw it – a bunch of people already know this is happening, and Andrew was happy for us to share the Wolfmother element of the news now, so…

Wolfmother will be supporting Black Sabbath at this year’s British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park, London! The Sabbath news has been hinted at and rumoured over the last few days, and is set to be confirmed tomorrow anyway, but Andrew has also revealed that Wolfmother will be performing at the event as well.

Setlist from Mumbai Show Surfaces

March 10, 2014

Following on from the band’s first ever shows in India this past week, the setlist for Wolfmother’s performance at the Mumbai Hard Rock Café has surfaced on setlist.fm.

As with almost all of the band’s setlists for the past few years, the show opened with ‘Dimension’ and closed with ‘Joker & the Thief’, both from debut album Wolfmother. Material from the 2005 self-titled effort comprised the majority of the setlist, with the rest made up of two songs from Cosmic Egg, one from Andrew Stockdale’s Keep Moving, and two as-yet unreleased tracks.

The set is almost exactly the same as those performed since the band reunited, but for the exclusion of new track ‘Heavy Weight’, and presumably the same as the other two shows in India.

Check out the full setlist below (new tracks in bold):

  1. Dimension
  2. New Moon Rising
  3. Woman
  4. White Unicorn
  5. Apple Tree
  6. California Queen
  7. Mind’s Eye
  8. How Many Times
  9. Love Train
  10. Vagabond
  11. Long Way to Go
  12. Colossal

New-Look Wolfmother Perform New Song

November 18, 2013

WolfmotherTallShipsAfter 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.

Wolfmother Return… as a Trio!

November 8, 2013

Wolfmother at The Northern, 6/11/13After 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.
