Features the hit single "Victorious"

Album download included, 320kbps MP4

Led by vocalist/guitarist Andrew Stockdale, Wolfmother have amassed a global fanbase, played to packed-house crowds around the world, delivered show-stealing sets at star-studded festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza and Reading and Leeds, and have been invited to share stages with rock icons Aerosmith and AC/DC. For their induction into the U.K. Music Hall of Fame, Led Zeppelin personally invited Wolfmother as their guests (the band showed their appreciation by delivering an electrifying cover of “Communication Breakdown”).

For most artists, such accomplishments usually mark the culmination of a career – if they’re lucky.

But ten years after their arrival, Wolfmother have returned with what could arguably be called their best work to date. With Victorious, Stockdale once again arrives right on time: in an era dominated by single-song downloads, this is an album worthy of repeat listens from top to bottom. After 2009’s Cosmic Egg and 2014’s New Crown, the much-anticipated Victorious is an electrifying testament to the range and depth of Stockdale’s artistry.

Recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with two-time Grammy winning producer Brendan O’Brien (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Bruce Springsteen), the songs are edgy, inventive and uncompromising and rank among the band's best ever. Stockdale began working on the record this past January at his Byron Bay studio in New South Wales, writing on every instrument and embracing the same creative approach he used on the band's debut album a decade ago.

"Back in the early days, I'd play guitar, bass, and drums and then present the ideas to the band and we'd work on the arrangement together," he says. "I thought it would be cool to get back to demoing ideas by myself and playing everything. It’s a good way to do things because it can make the style more cohesive."

In addition to vocals, Stockdale played guitar and bass and brought in Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Bruce Springsteen, A Perfect Circle) and Joey Waronker (Beck, Gnarls Barkley, REM) to split drum duties.

About working with O'Brien, Stockdale says, "I did the last record by myself, so it was good to get back to working with a producer who could help with arrangements and have a responsibility to maintain the sound. Brendan's a very musical producer, and he had a great understanding of the songs."

The first single "Victorious" swings from a propulsive riff and pronounced drum stomp into a gargantuan, triumphant vocal hook. "I bought this weird-looking eighties metal guitar," he recalls. "It just looks hilarious and I was playing all of these riffs for 20 minutes, pairing them with drums. The lyrics came out of nowhere. It felt so natural. The words had a certain ring to them."
