Wolfmother Visits the 9:30 Club, March 2nd

Andrew Stockdale of Wolfmother

From our friends at the 9:30 Club...

Grammy Award-winning rock band WOLFMOTHER release their highly anticipated new album, VICTORIOUS (Universal Music Enterprises) on February 19th.

Wolfmother will support VICTORIOUS with a headline tour of North America set to kick off February 24th at First Avenue in Minneapolis. Wolfmother performs locally, at the 9:30 Club on Wednesday, March 2nd (doors open at 7.) Click here to purchase tickets online.

VICTORIOUS was written by vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale at his studio in Byron Bay and recorded at legendary Henson Studios in Los Angeles with 2-time Grammy winning producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Mastodon, Bruce Springsteen.)

Stockdale handled vocal, guitar and bass-playing duties on the album, with drums split between Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Bruce Springsteen, A Perfect Circle) and Joey Waronker (Air, Beck, Gnarls Barkley, REM.)

Wolfmother first made its mark in 2005 with an eponymous debut that was exactly what rock & roll needed: a meaty, beaty, big and bouncy genre resuscitator that not only broke through to the mainstream, but broke big. Wolfmother was certified Gold in the States, UK & Canada and 5x-Platinum in the band’s Australian homeland. Lead single “Woman” hit top ten on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks Chart and won a Grammy for “Best Hard Rock Performance.” Their songs became ubiquitous, appearing in films (Shrek, Jackass, Due Date, The Hangover I, II & III), video games (Need For Speed, MLB: The Show, Saints Row) and television commercials (Apple, Mitsubishi). Rolling Stone named it one of the best albums of the year.

Led by Stockdale, Wolfmother have amassed a global fan base, played to packed-house crowds around the world, delivered show-stealing sets at star-studded festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Isle of Wight, Rock am Ring and Reading and Leeds, and have been invited to share stages with rock icons Aerosmith and AC/DC. For their induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame, Led Zeppelin personally invited Wolfmother as their guests (the band showed their appreciation by delivering an electrifying cover of “Communication Breakdown.”)

Ten years after their arrival, Wolfmother have returned with what could arguably be called their best work to date. With VICTORIOUS, Stockdale once again arrives right on time: in an era dominated by single-song downloads, this is an album worthy of repeat listens from top to bottom.
