Wolfmother To Play Final Show as Frontman Andrew Stockdale Goes Solo

Wolfmother are winding down the days to their split, as the band has revealed that their April 28 date at Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl opening for Aerosmith will be their final performance.

However, this isn’t your traditional split, as current Wolfmother members Ian Peres, Elliott Hamilton, Vin Steele and Hamish Rosser will continue on with frontman Andrew Stockdale as he releases his next disc as a solo artist rather than using the band’s name.

Wolfmother broke on the scene with 2005’s self-titled release. At the time, Wolfmother were a power trio with Chris Ross and Myles Heskett rounding out the band. However, after the album and tour cycle concluded, Stockdale remained while the two other members departed. He then went about restocking the band’s lineup for 2009’s ‘Cosmic Egg’ album, a disc that also featured Peres.

Speaking about the decision to go solo, Stockdale told The Music Network (excerpted by the Sydney Morning Herald), “It’s about when people pigeonhole you and categorize you. Whatever someone thinks you can or can’t do, it’s not up to them. It’s up to the individual, and if someone thinks they’ve got me all worked out, well, hey, I’ve got a long way to go.”

Rather than continue Wolfmother’s revolving door lineup, Stockdale has decided to go the solo route. His new album, ‘Keep Moving,’ is expected to arrive next month, preceded by the single ‘Long Way to Go’ coming out this Thursday, April 26.
