Wolfmother is an Australian hard rock band originally formed in 2000 by vocalist and guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist and keyboardist Chris Ross, and drummer Myles Heskett.[1] The band signed with Modular Recordings and released the four-track extended play Wolfmother in 2004.[2][3] The band released their debut album, also self-titled, in Australia in 2005;[2] it featured 12 new recordings, including the four songs from the 2004 EP.[4] In 2006 the band released a second EP, Dimensions, which featured the new song "Love Train",[5] subsequently released as the B-side to "White Unicorn"[6] and included on the 2006 international edition of Wolfmother.[1][2] In May 2007 the band contributed a new song, "Pleased to Meet You", to the Spider-Man 3 soundtrack.[7]

Original members Ross and Heskett left the band in August 2008,[8][9] after which a hiatus followed and new members Aidan Nemeth (guitar), Ian Peres (bass and keyboards) and Dave Atkins (drums) joined in 2009.[10] The second lineup of the band first released "Back Round" as a free digital download in March,[11][12][13] and later as a digital single in June.[14][15] Wolfmother's second studio album, Cosmic Egg, was released in October 2009, containing 12 songs (16 on deluxe editions).[16][17] During a break in the band's New Moon Rising World Tour in April 2010, Atkins left the band and was replaced by Will Rockwell-Scott, known for his work with The Mooney Suzuki.[18] The band also contributed a new song, "Fell Down a Hole", to the soundtrack album Almost Alice in March 2010,[19] and later a cover version of "Cheap Sunglasses" for ZZ Top: A Tribute from Friends in October 2011.[20]

In February 2012, it was announced that Nemeth and Rockwell-Scott had left the band, with Vin Steele and Hamish Rosser replacing them and Elliott Hammond also joining the group.[21] Little over a year later though, the band's next album was released as Keep Moving, a Stockdale solo album, with the band said to be on hiatus.[22][23] In July, however, it was announced that Wolfmother had returned with Stockdale, Peres, and Steele (on drums),[24] and the following March the band's third official album New Crown was released through website Bandcamp, containing 11 tracks.[25]
