"New Moon Rising", the new video from WOLFMOTHER, can be viewed below. The kaleidoscope of visual feats features an onslaught of color, effects and cut up animation pieced together resulting in a journey to the decade of rock 'n roll. Prepared by New Zealand directors Special Problems, the clip is an arresting display of psychedelic voodoo and the perfect jump off point into the world of the band's new record, "Cosmic Egg".
WOLFMOTHER's 2006 debut sold more than 500,000 copies in the U.S. and featured the Grammy-winning single "Woman".
WOLFMOTHER's cross-country trek will kick off at the House of Blues in Dallas, Texas on October 29 and wrap up 20 cities later at the legendary Wiltern Theater in Los Angeles. Support for all shows will come from THENEWNO2 and HEARTLESS BASTARDS.
