The world-renowned psychedelic rock band, WOLFMOTHER is back in action with their new album, New Crown, which was unexpectedly released via Bandcamp on March 23rd. The ten-track record has already received outstanding reviews from music publications across the globe. Billboard declares it “a return to Wolfmother’s psychedelic rock origins,” while Rolling Stone says the songs embody a new plethora of sounds from “punk-leaning edge” to “more…riffs and lo-fi production values than past albums.” With this fiery third release, WOLFMOTHER is ready to share their new music internationally, as they play major music festivals over the next several months.
Hailing from Sydney, Australia, the groundbreaking rock outfit took formation in 2004. Their self-titled debut album (feat. “Woman”, “Joker & The Thief”) and sophomore record Cosmic Egg (“New Moon Rising”, “California Queen”) were a critical successes, which led to achievements such as ARIA Awards (including “Best Rock Album”) and a Grammy Award for “Best Hard Rock Performance”. The band has performed with the likes of legendary rockers AC/DC, Aerosmith, Pearl Jam and the Smashing Pumpkins; and appeared at world-famous festivals such as SXSW, Reading/Leeds, Download, Coachella, Rock Am Ring, Splendour In The Grass, Werchter Festival and many, many others over the past ten years.
WOLFMOTHER are excited to finally give fans the third album they’ve been waiting for, with a sound that shows the world they are more unified than ever. Lead vocalist and guitarist, Andrew Stockdale believes New Crown encompasses the band’s original signature sound.
“I think people are sort of glad to hear we’ve got back to our roots with what made Wolfmother in the first place,” he says. “The sound at the moment just feels right for me”.
This year marks a legendary chapter in the band’s career as they share new music for the first time in nearly five years, coupled with relentless international touring. This year also commemorates a monumental milestone in the history of WOLFMOTHER – a decade since their first live show Vic On The Park in Sydney on April 15, 2004.
“If anything, this record is about making you want to see the band live, which is where Wolfmother comes to life!”
