With an extensive history & career, including multi platinum sales, ARIA, Grammy & other award nods too numerous to mention, Wolfmother released album number 4, ‘Victorious’ in 2016 to rave reviews & enthusiastic international response resulting in the aforementioned extended world tour. 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 like 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 UK 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. With their return home, Wolfmother recently performed a series of stadium dates across Australia as guests of rock legends, Guns N’ Roses (which also included GnR shows in USA, Singapore & New Zealand)
Finally, Wolfmother return to home stages headlining their own shows. The Triffid Newstead Sun 23 April 8pm.
