Almost two years after their last Italian concert, the Wolfmother return to the peninsula to present their new studio work 'Victorious' (Universal Music)which will be released next February. The only Italian date of the Gypsy Caravan Tour is set for Sunday 8 May 2016 at Alcatraz in Milan. I tickets will be available on the circuit Ticketone starting from 10 a.m. on Friday 22 January.
'Victorious' is the fourth studio album for the Australian band, which this year celebrates sixteen years of activity punctuated by major awards including entry into the UK Music Hall Of Fame and participation in all major world festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading e Leedsas well as having opened concerts by rock icons Aerosmith e AC/DC. The frontman Andrew Stockdale started working on the album last January at his recording studio in New South Wales, composing on all instruments and using the same creative approach he had already tried ten years ago with the band's debut album. "At first I would play guitar, bass and drums, then I would submit ideas to the rest of the band and we would work together on the arrangements," said the singer and guitarist, "I thought it would be nice to start playing everything again and get my ideas down on a demo. It's a good way of working, because you get a well-blended style".
In addition to singing on the new album, Stockdale recorded the guitar and bass tracks and was joined by drummers Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Bruce Springsteen, A Perfect Circle) e Joey Waronker (Beck, Gnarls Barkley, REM), and the award-winning producer Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Bruce Springsteen). The result, in the words of Stockdale, is definitely interesting: 'We wanted a full-bodied sound, balanced between garage energy and great production work. It's wild and energetic, perfect for a festival!".
