PostSubject: Wolfmother   Sun Aug 02, 2009 3:34 pm

Wolfmother is an Australian hard rock band that formed in Erskineville, Sydney in 2000. Originally comprising vocalist and guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist and keyboardist Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett, the band has released one studio album, Wolfmother (2005), which reached number three on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart. The album also won the 2005 J Award and 2006 ARIA Awards for Best Breakthrough Album and Best Rock Album. "Woman", a single from the album, won the band their first Grammy Award, for Best Hard Rock Performance, in 2007.

In August 2008, co-founding members Ross and Heskett left the band due to "irreconcilable personal and musical differences," though Stockdale stated that he would continue using the Wolfmother moniker with new members in the future. After a brief hiatus, Stockdale returned with new musicians: bassist and keyboardist Ian Peres, guitarist Aidan Nemeth and drummer Dave Atkins. The new lineup's first album, Cosmic Egg is set to be released on 13 October 2009.

Wolfmother formed in 2000[1] and made their way into the public spotlight in 2004 after "years of jamming and anonymity".[2] They were signed to Australian record label Modular Recordings at the beginning of August and throughout the year played a number of dates at various venues (including a tour with Cut Copy and Midnight Juggernauts), before in September they finished recording and released their debut extended play (EP), Wolfmother. The record was relatively successful for such a new band, reaching number thirty-five in the ARIA Singles Chart.[3]

After "6 months of nonstop Australian and overseas touring",[2] Wolfmother began work on their first full-length album, for which they enlisted the help of Dave Sardy, producer of such records as Don't Believe the Truth (Oasis), Get Born (Jet) and Thirteen Tales from Urban Bohemia (The Dandy Warhols). The band moved to Los Angeles in May 2005 and rented Hollywood recording studio Cherokee, recording home of such artists as Aerosmith, Korn and Lenny Kravitz.[4] After six weeks of rehearsals at the studio, work moved to Sound City where the album was recorded in just two weeks.[2] Before the release of the album, the band first released their debut single; double A-side "Mind's Eye/Woman" was released on 16 October 2005 in Australia and managed to reach number twenty-nine in the Singles Chart.[5] On 30 October, Wolfmother saw release in the trio's home country. The album entered the ARIA Albums Chart at its peak of number three and remained in the chart until mid-2007,[6] by which time it had been certified five times platinum.[7]

By the end of the year, Wolfmother had won Triple J's J Award for Australian Album of the Year,[8] and "Woman" had been nominated for Single of the Year and Best Breakthrough Artist (Single) at the ARIA Music Awards.
