Informally formed over 20 years ago, the first incarnation of Wolfmother officially came together in 2004, released a self-titled debut EP that same year, and subsequent eponymous, breakthrough full-length album a year later (its worldwide release would be delayed until 2006). A smash in their native Australia, Wolfmother went on to achieve platinum status and worldwide acclaim, including a Grammy for single “Woman,” cementing the band, then a trio, as modern hard rock heroes, heavily influenced by classic acts like AC/DC, Black Sabbath, and Led Zeppelin, and akin to peers such as The White Stripes, Queens of the Stone Age, and The Darkness. By the time the group began working on a followup, Cosmic Egg, only singer/songwriter/guitarist Andrew Stockdale remained in the band’s lineup, and a revolving door of permanent and touring members have supported him in three and four-piece incarnations since, save for a couple of albums released under his own name over the years. The band have been on a rather prolific tear over the last decade, releasing four more LPs since 2014- most recently 2021’s self-released Rock Out– all the while sticking to their tried and true, no-BS flavor of hard rock, with influences of metal, blues rock, and psych rock.
Though heralded for their electrifying live show, and a regular live act at festivals and tours around the globe, Stockdale and co. haven’t actually played Nashville many times over the years, last making their way to Music City in 2016, and before that, way back in 2006. That’ll finally change on Nov. 18, when Wolfmother return to headline Eastside Bowl, along with California psych rockers Fever Dog! Tickets are still available right here while they last, but we’re excited to announce that we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one lucky fan; preview the lineup and enter below.
Wolfmother and Fever Dog will perform Saturday, Nov. 18 at Eastside Bowl. The show is 18+, begins at 8 p.m. (doors at 7 p.m.), and tickets are available to purchase for $29.50.
