YES!!! People unite for the Wolfies have returned from the canyons of L.A with a fusion of freaked out jamming, delicate melodies and gallant rock riffage that shall be known collectively as "Wolfmother".
Myles Heskett, Chris Ross and Andrew Stockdale are the key holders to the future of all things Wolf...together they write all their songs while contributing drums, bass/keyboards and guitar/vocals respectively.
Chris, Andrew and Myles decamped to L.A. in May, 2005 and rented a legendary Hollywood recording studio called Cherokee for their rehearsal space. In its heyday Cherokee hosted sessions like Pink Floyd's "The Wall" and from this memorable place came unforgettable things as freeform jams evolved into fully formed songs.
After six weeks of focused creativity at Cherokee and many fish taco's - the band finally began recording at legendary studio, Sound City. As a result "Wolfmother" was incubated in the same room as albums like "Nevermind" and "Rumours". After just two weeks in that cavernous space the band had captured the inspired live performances which would form the backbone of their debut album. They then spent another month elsewhere in L.A. adding the little touches that help make "Wolfmother" such a sprawling beast. And in their downtime they became Champions of every pinball machine in the valley.
Throughout this process Myles, Andrew and Chris remained committed to retaining the raw, emotive punch of their live performances. Everything was directed toward capturing the perfect feeling rather than "faultless performance". The result is a record on which reckless abandon and glorious imperfections underpin the most evocative moments.
It all landed in Australia on October 30 where it was greeted by reviews full of many stars. "Wolfmother" debuted at #3 on the charts, won the Album Of The Year award from national alternative radio network Triple J, and was quickly certified platinum.
The album is available now in Australia, UK, and Northern America and the group will tour internationally throughout 2006.
Please experience Wolfmother.
