Wolfmother Tour Dates 2018

Truly a band out of time, Australian power threesome Wolfmother were conceived in 2000 — about 30 years too late, considering that their psychedelic brand of proto-heavy metal sounds like a ringer for late-’60s/early-’70s bands such as Blue Cheer and Black Sabbath. comprised of vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist/organist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett, Wolfmother took the initiative of recording a four-track demo in 2004 for the purpose of getting booked for shows. But so sterling were the results that they soon found themselves re-recording it for official release via local Modular Records. A second EP, Dimensions, appeared in 2006, and Wolfmother made the jump to the majors in early 2006 courtesy of an American distribution deal for Modular through Interscope. Their self-titled album debut appeared in May and reached the Top 40, resulting in a trophy for “Best Hard Rock Performance” at the 2007 Grammy awards. Co-founders Ross and Heskett left the band the not long after year, leaving Stockdale and new members Ian Peres (bass, keyboards), Aidan Nemeth (guitar), and drummer Dave Atkins to carry the torch with 2009’s Cosmic Egg.
