Wolfmother’s AndrewStockdale goes solo

Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale has surprised everyone by announcing he will be releasing the band’s new album under his own name.

Tweeting earlier today, Stockdale described the album as a “different trip now”, saying that he needed to be true to himself – whatever that means.


Work on the follow-up to 2009’s Cosmic Egg began in March 2011 when Stockdale, bassist/keyboardist Ian Peres and former members Aidan Nemeth (guitar) and Will Rockwell-Scott (drums) started recording in the band’s studio in Byron Bay, NSW. But further recording has happened intermittently, with Stockdale telling Brisbane streetpress Time Off that he’d been working on the album “on and off … in about four or five different locations”.

The personnel on the new album is also unclear. Guitarist Vin Steele, drummer Hamish Rosser (ex-The Vines) and multi-instrumentalist Elliott Hammond were recently brought into the fold, but the record will reportedly feature three bassists and four drummers, with fansite wolfmother.net reporting that former Resin Dog and Cosmic Egg drummer Dave Atkins (who quit the band in 2010) is also involved.

Stockdale recently tweeted that the record (working title: Gatherings ) was finished, and would be out in March. “I’m just trying to jump through the hoops to share this music with the world!”


Wolfmother will support Aerosmith in both Sydney and Dunedin on their first Australian tour in 24 years. The Sydney show at ANZ Stadium will also feature Grinspoon, Spiderbait, Kingswood, Dead Dasies and Diva Demolition. Dates and details here.

Whilst I’m here there’s still room for romance, poetry and spontaneity somewhere in the vast array of present day life.

you people are fucking idiots. the first single sounded great and so did the rest of the album that i heard while it was on sound cloud. who cares if it's called wolfmother or andrew stockdale. his rationale for dropping the wolfmother label was completely rational.
