Wolfmother Return To Australia For Their Gypsy Caravan Tour

It's time to howl in excitement because Australian rock band Wolfmother, are returning to homesoil for the Australian leg of their Gypsy Caravan Tour. The huge 19-date tour will see the band rock stages in Perth, Newcastle, Wollongong, Sydney, Brisbane, Margaret River, Adelaide, Melbourne, Thornbury, Forster Area, Port Macquarie, Sawtell, the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Traralgon, Geelong, Hobart and Launceston.

Boasting an extensive history and career, including multi-platinum sales, ARIA, Grammy and many other award nods, Wolfmother released album number 4, Victorious, in 2016 to rave reviews and enthusiastic international reception resulting in the aforementioned extended world tour.

Led by vocalist-guitarist Andrew Stockdale, Wolfmother have collected a global following, played to packed-house crowds globally, delivered show-stealing sets at star-studded festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds, and have been invited to perform alongside rock icons Aerosmith and AC/DC. For their induction into the UK Music Hall of Fame, Led Zeppelin personally invited the band 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.

When it was released in 2005, Wolfmother's eponymous debut was exactly what rock and roll needed – a meaty, beaty, big and bouncy genre resuscitator that not only broke through to the mainstream, but broke big. The album hit Gold status in the States and Triple-Platinum in the band's 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 were played everywhere, 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.

A decade 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 when single-song download is the name of the game, this is an album worthy of repeat listens from top to bottom. Following 2009's Cosmic Egg and 2014's New Crown, the highly 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, innovative and uncompromising and rank among the band's best ever.

The band will be joined by special guests: Tumbleweed for the Wollongong and Sydney shows; Davey Lane on all shows except Margaret River, Perth, Adelaide and Frankston shows; Immigrant Union on all shows except for Margaret River and Perth shows and Dram Rimmy appearing on the Margaret River and Perth shows.

Make sure you get your tickets for what will be epic shows from Wolfmother!
