Wolfmother's Cosmic Egg for UK release and 2010 tour tickets: Friday 23rd October

Posted: 22nd October 2009

The Aussie hard/ stoner rock revivalists of Wolfmother return with a second album, 'Cosmic Egg', due out tomorrow, October 23rd, thus succeeding their eponymous 2005 debut.

Recorded earlier this year, the album was produced by Alan Moulder (The Jesus and Mary Chain, Ride, My Bloody Valentine, The Smashing Pumpkins). The band has just undergone a line-up revamp following the departure of keyboardist Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett due to the usual creative differences, and will support this new effort with a European tour.

They will be stopping by the UK in mid- January 2010, via the cities of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne January 15th), Manchester (January 17th), Birmingham (January 19th) and London (January 21st).

Meanwhile, Yoga enthusiast (hence the album title, he says) front-man, Andrew Stockdale will be hitting the studio for a collaboration with Slash.

Wolfmother have currently have two singles out: 'Back Round' and 'New Moon Rising', respectively released in June and early October.

Tickets for January tour go on sale tomorrow, Friday October 23rd, 9AM.
