Wolfmother have announced a run of 27 European dates for April and May.
The tour includes nine UK shows and a gig in Dublin. They’re in support of the Australian outfit’s fourth album Victorious, released on February 19 via Universal Music.
The follow-up to 2009’s Cosmic Egg was recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles with double Grammy-winning producer Brendan O’Brien – who has worked with Pearl Jam, AC/DC, Chris Cornell and Bruce Springsteen.
Mainman Andrew Stockdale played guitar and bass and brought in former Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle man Josh Freese and REM, Air And Beck Joey Waronker drummer to split drum duties.
Stockdale says: “We wanted to get back to that big sound. The album is a balance of garage-y energy and big production. It’s wild, energetic and perfect for a festival main stage.”
