Wolf man keeps it mov­ing along

The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - WHAT’S ON -

WOLF­MOTHER front­man An­drew Stock­dale (pic­tured, be­low) has an­nounced a first solo tour and de­tails of his up­com­ing al­bum, Keep Mov­ing. Stock­dale will em­bark on a 14-date national tour af­ter putting his Gram­my­win­ning band to rest at their fi­nal show sup­port­ing Aero­smith in Melbourne. He re­leased de­but sin­gle Long Way To Go as part of a 4-track EP, Keep Mov­ing, with a brand new al­bum of the same name due out on June 7. Keep Mov­ing has been three years in the mak­ing and was recorded with a va­ri­ety of mu­si­cians, in­clud­ing mem­bers of Wolf­mother who will con­tinue to per­form with Stock­dale. Mixed by Vance Pow­ell at Sput­nik Sound in Nashville, the al­bum will be pushed out to Aus­tralia ahead of re­lease dates in the US and the UK. ‘‘I’m re­ally happy with it,’’ Stock­dale says of the al­bum. ‘‘To­tally, absolutely, I love it. I can live with it. I’ve lis­tened to it a thou­sand times.’’ Stock­dale ad­mits there was pres­sure to con­tinue play­ing as Wolf­mother, a name cre­ated 13 years ago with mu­si­cians who have since left the band. ‘‘It was a name, a brand ev­ery­one knows. But I don’t feel com­fort­able play­ing as Wolf­mother,’’ Stock­dale says. ‘‘When you write a song, what’s on your mind comes out, what’s in your heart and soul comes out. I’ve been get­ting stuff off my chest, ex­press­ing ideas and ex­pe­ri­ences that are per­sonal to me and I don’t want to keep then ap­ply­ing that to the Wolf­mother name.’’

An­drew Stock­dale plays the Coolan­gatta Ho­tel on June 28 and The Great North­ern Ho­tel, By­ron Bay, on June 29.
