Wolfmother announce winter 2010 European tour
Fresh from a sold-out European club tour and an explosive performance on Later with Jools Holland on BBC2, Wolfmother announced today a month-long European tour kicking off in January 2010. Their forthcoming – and already critically acclaimed – second album Cosmic Egg is available throughout Europe the last week of October.
Cosmic Egg is the follow up to their internationally lauded debut, the self-titled Wolfmother, which has sold over 1.4 million copies worldwide and earned the band multiple ARIA awards and a US Grammy for “Best Hard Rock Performance.”
The seeds for Cosmic Egg were sown when the touring cycle for the debut record came to a close and frontman and guitarist Andrew Stockdale sat down to start from scratch at his home studio in Brisbane. Stockdale and his bandmates – bassist/keyboardist Ian Peres, drummer Dave Atkins and rhythm guitarist Aidan Nemeth - rode ashore in picturesque Byron Bay, Australia to begin pre-production with acclaimed producer Alan Moulder.
Moulder brought a giant hessian sack of worldly producer experience to the table having previously worked with the likes of My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins, Ride and Nine Inch Nails. The recording process moved to Los Angeles - a location that added another dimension of rich experience to the recording process and the perfect place to make magic from one’s own mind.
Kerrang heralds “On Cosmic Egg, Wolfmother have exceeded expectation, proving themselves modern masters of riff-centered, bass-heavy bong rock alchemy. Almost every track contains something fresh and off kilter while remaining immediate and throat-grabbing at the same time.”
All tour dates are listed below. Pre-sale tickets are available October 21st at 10am and include the option to pre-order Cosmic Egg at a discounted price. General on-sale begins October 23rd at 9am.
