The triumphant return of Wolfmother is imminent. Frontman Andrew Stockdale has emerged from his self-built home studio and is due to head to LA to record the second Wolfmother album with producer Alan Moulder in April. Wolfmother stepped out earlier in February to play two shows in Brisbane and Sydney to roadtest the new material prior to recording.
Billed as White Feather, the shows at the Valley Studios in Andrew’s hometown of Brisbane and The Oxford Arts Factory in Sydney sold out within minutes of word leaking online, and Wolfmother ripped through a set of old gold and new magic to those quick enough to be there.
Coming aboard for album two is esteemed producer Alan Moulder, universally admired for his groundbreaking work with Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins, The Jesus & Mary Chain and My Bloody Valentine. After mixing a track Andrew had recorded at home for the upcoming Guitar Hero game, Moulder was enlisted to produce the whole record, which is due for release in the last quarter of 2009.
On the live front, Wolfmother will mark their return playing both the Melbourne & Sydney Sound Relief Benefit concerts scheduled to run simultaneously on March 14 and the Clipsal500 motor racing event in Adelaide on March 22.
