WOLFMOTHER To Record New Album In The Fall

Singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale of Australia's WOLFMOTHER has told MTV.com that the band will return to the studio in the fall to record its follow-up to the band's acclaimed self-titled debut, which came out in early 2006.

"We do have a lot of jams, like incoherent pieces of music, that at least could get the ball rolling," Stockdale said. "And I have a few ideas I've been working on in hotels and stuff, which is kind of the way half of the record was written last time. Sometimes it can be a long process and sometimes it happens really quickly, so you just have to keep the fishing net open for ideas and hope that you catch a few."

So why the long wait? Well, tour dates in Japan, Europe and Australia are scheduled through early April, after which Wolfmother plan to hit the States one more time.

"We'll be touring till probably July, and then we'll probably take a break and start working on the second record at the end of [2007]," Stockdale said.

WOLFMOTHER have already toured for more than a year behind their debut LP, but Stockdale's well aware of what it takes to keep on truckin'. "Drink lots of water and get eight hours of sleep a night," he advised. "I used to try and go out all the time and just have three or four hours [rest] and after months, you definitely will burn out.

"And I think, the other thing is, just be honest," he continued. "I think when you deal with the press or whatever, maybe people put themselves through a lot of anxiety trying to be more than they actually are, and that creates this kind of anxiety within the band. I think you just got to relax and let the music take its path. And enjoy playing shows and traveling — enjoy the experience while it lasts, 'cause this is a transient business."
