September 14, 2006
Aussie power trio, Wolfmother, willroll their unmistakable brew of tripped out rock across North Americathrough November and December. The group will headline major cities fromNew York to San Francisco. These shows will see the band playing venuesthat are ten to twenty times larger than those they were playing in thesame cities just seven months ago, capping an amazing year in which theirself titled debut album has sold over 800,000 copies globally so far.
Wolfmother recently completed some arena dates in Europe opening forPearlJam. In Spain Eddie Vedder joined them onstage to add vocals to theirepic “Minds Eye”, Mike McCready jammed on “Woman”. In Belgium frontwolf,Andrew Stockdale, sang with the headliners on a memorable encore of theWho’s “Baba O’Riley” and Temple Of The Dog’s “Hunger Strike”. It was atrip.
Meanwhile, on this side of the Atlantic, Wolfmother’s new single,”Joker & The Thief” can currently be heard in trailers for the forthcomingmovie “Jackass Number 2”. Johnny Knoxville’s notorious crew are alsofeatured in the kinky video for the song that’s currently generating loadsof buzz both on and off line. Check it out via http://www.wolfmother.com
“Joker & The Thief” isn’t the only Wolftune to be making waves rightnow. The band’s first single — “Woman” — is featured in the latestversion of the massively popular “Madden Football” game and the openingtrack from their album — “Dimension” — is the theme for comedian DaneCook’s HBO series. All this on the heels of a recent iPod campaignfeaturing the grooves of “Love Train”.
