Band Currently On Tour With Alter Bridge With Future Dates Alongside Metallica, Def Leppard/Motley Crüe and More Already Announced.

(New York, NY – March 22, 2023) – On the heels of a whirlwind debut that included a GRAMMY® Award nomination for his first-ever single, #1 debuts on multiple charts, television performances, and sold out shows over a two-year span, Mammoth WVH is back with its sophomore album Mammoth II. The 10-track record will be available worldwide on August 4th via the band’s new label, BMG. Recorded at the legendary 5150 studio, the album was produced by friend and collaborator Michael “Elvis” Baskette. Mammoth II is available for pre-order in multiple configurations here: https://MammothWVH.lnk.to/MammothIIPR.  

Continuing the tradition of writing all of the songs and performing all of the instrumentation and vocals himselfWolfgang Van Halen set out to challenge himself to expand his sound beyond what people had already come to know of him. From the rocking opener “Right?” to Beatles-esque fade on closer “Better Than You” Mammoth II showcases the growth of Wolfgang as a songwriter, musician and especially as a vocalist.  Songs like “Like A Pastime,” “Take A Bow” and “Waiting” are all sonically different from each other but unique to what mastermind Wolfgang Van Halen and Mammoth WVH is. The debut single from Mammoth II is the upbeat rocker “Another Celebration At The End Of The World.” The single is currently impacting radio and the music video for “Another Celebration At The End Of The World” is an 8:25 introduction to the Mammoth WVH live band.

“I knew that I wanted the new album to contain elements of what people heard on the debut, but also giving me a chance to branch out a bit. ‘Another Celebration At The End Of the World’ is definitely a song that showcases what people can expect from the new album. It is a high-energy rocker with some fun guitar moments on it. I also pushed myself vocally and it is a song I can’t wait to get out and play live. I can see it being a fixture in our live set moving forward,” explains Wolfgang Van Halen.

The video really captures the reason that people are so attracted to Wolfgang Van Halen. Everyone feels as if they know his story, everyone feels as if they know him. His journey is their journey. This is for many reasons: fans can relate to him musically because of the family legacy, others can relate because they feel his story, have lost a father, have had difficult times. It’s a compelling story, growing up in a famous family and taking up the family business, but also trying to make his own way. Criticism, adulation, fame- this is the story of American fame with all of its pitfalls and hardships, but also its positive side of redemption and survival in the face of difficulty and challenge. People see themselves in Wolfgang in a way that they can’t in any aging rockstar or Kardashian; he seems like one of us, accept his last name is Van Halen.

Mammoth WVH is planning to tour around the globe in support of Mammoth II. The live band – comprised of Wolfgang Van Halen, Frank Sidoris, Jon Jourdan, Ronnie Ficarro and Garrett Whitlock – is currently on the second leg of the US tour supporting Alter Bridge before moving to another massive tour playing alongside Metallica. Mammoth WVH will also be making various festival appearances around the globe as well as headline stops going in to 2024. More dates will be announced in the near future tickets for all Mammoth WVH appearances can be found here: https://www.mammothwvh.com.
