Wolfgang Van Halen’s Mammoth WVH Set To Release ‘Mammoth II’
On the heels of a whirlwind debut that included a GRAMMY® Award nomination for his first-ever single, #1 debuts on multiple charts, television performances, and sold out shows over a two-year span, Mammoth WVH is back with its second album Mammoth II. The 10-track record will be available worldwide on August 4 via the band’s new label, BMG.
Recorded at the legendary 5150 studio, the album was produced by friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette, Mammoth II is available for pre-order in multiple configurations at: MammothWVH.lnk.to/MammothIIPR
Continuing the tradition of writing all of the songs and performing all of the instrumentation and vocals himself, Wolfgang Van Halen set out to challenge himself to expand his sound beyond what people had already come to know him for. From the rocking opener Right? to Beatles-esque fade on closer Better Than You Mammoth II showcases the growth of Wolfgang as a songwriter, musician and especially vocalist. Songs like Like A Pastime, Take A Bow and Waiting are all sonically different from each other but unique to what mastermind Wolfgang Van Halen and Mammoth WVH is. The debut single from Mammoth II is the upbeat rocker Another Celebration At The End Of The World. The single is currently impacting radio and the music video for Another Celebration At The End Of The World is an 8:25 introduction to the Mammoth WVH live band.
Picking up where the #1 single Don’t Back Down music video left off, the new video showcases a frustrated Wolfgang firing the other Wolfgang’s from that video and replacing them with his now notorious live band featuring Frank Sidoris (guitars), Jon Jourdan (guitars), Ronnie Ficarro (Bass) and Garrett Whitlock (drums).
“I knew that I wanted the new album to contain elements of what people heard on the debut, but also giving me a chance to branch out a bit. ‘Another Celebration At The End Of the World’ is definitely a song that showcases what people can expect from the new album. It is a high-energy rocker with some fun guitar moments on it. I also pushed myself vocally and it is a song I can’t wait to get out and play live. I can see it being a fixture in our live set moving forward,” explains Wolfgang Van Halen
