For 15 years the Sydney trio have been one of Australia's most successful exports, with a staggeringly massive fanbase across the globe.
Who doesn't remember the first time they heard 'Woman' blasting through the speakers!? Since then Wolfmother, fronted by the incomparable Andrew Stockdale, have released four classic albums and have been collecting ARIA Awards and Triple J Hottest 100 spots like nobody's business.

Wolfmother present their new album ‘Victorious’
Pitchfork praised the songs for striking “a balance between meaty vintage metal and crisp, stoner-rock melodies.” NME said it ticked “the requisite boxes for all great rock & roll” and called it “utterly, utterly thrilling,” and Q Magazine called it “immense fun.”
When it was released in 2005, Wolfmother’s eponymous debut was exactly what rock & roll needed: a meaty, beaty, big and bouncy genre resuscitator that not only broke through to the mainstream, but broke big.
Wolfmother was certified Gold in the States and Triple-Platinum in the band’s Australian homeland. Lead single “Woman” hit top ten on the Hot Modern Rock Tracks Chart and won a Grammy for “Best Hard Rock Performance.” Their songs became ubiquitous, appearing in films (Shrek, Jackass, The Hangover), video games (Need For Speed, MLB: The
Show, Saints Row) and television commercials (Apple, Mitsubishi).
No wonder Rolling Stone named it one of the best albums of the year.
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.
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. Following 2009’s Cosmic Egg and 2014’s New Crown, the much-
anticipated Victorious (Universal Music Enterprises) 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.
‘... it had something for everyone who had fallen in love with the band’s seemingly timeless Led Zeppelin-inspired heavier rifforama, power pop reminiscent of Cheap Trick or the folk-tinged Small Faces.’ - Sunday Herald Sun, Melbourne 140216
‘Victorious seems to capture a turning point in Stockdale’s journey as a songwriter: moving on from his tried-and-true formulas while also making a bid for relevance in a musical landscape with vastly different politics than when he began. ‘ - The Music (Melbourne), Melbourne 170216
‘... the songwriting is tighter, the production is light years ahead of the band’s previous work, and Stockdale is working from a place of focus and direction. ‘ **** - The Music (Melbourne + Brisbane ), Melbourne 170216
