Wolfmother Returns

Wolfmother Tour With The Killers Before Releasing New Album
Cosmic Egg, On October 13

The Australian rock outlaws that comprise Wolfmother are back together - minus two founding members - ready to release a new body of work and spend some time on the road. The band will preview new material on the road this summer, with a run of shows alongside The Killers. For the six shows in support of The Killers the Aussies will unveil new songs they've spent months recording in L.A.

Fans in L.A. can experience the whole album set to mind-blowing visuals on July 27 at the Laserium CyberTheater at the historic Vine Theater in Hollywood. Wolfmother also plays August 22 at KROQ's Epicenter '09 festival at the Fairplex at Pomona in California.

The Grammy-winning four-piece recently dropped teaser track "Back Round" on iTunes, MySpace.com/wolfmother and wolfmother.com. Wolfmother is also opening for AC/DC on its "Black Ice Tour," beginning in February in 2010. The down-under tour sold out faster than any other tour in the Australia's history.

Led by hirsute shredder Andrew Stockdale, the band cooked Cosmic Egg for three years, taking time to lock in a permanent lineup and build on the self-titled album that gave the world the insta-classic and much overplayed track "Woman." Wolfmother recorded over the course of two months with heralded U.K. producer Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, The Killers, My Bloody Valentine). His sweeping and storied career as an iconic record-maker coupled with Wolfmother's immortal song craft add up to nothing short of a truly enjoyable listen.

Wolfmother plans to headline a U.S. tour after the album's release later this year.
