Former Wolfmother Members Turn Focus to Doom Buggy Side Project

By |

After parting ways with singer-guitarist Andrew Stockdale last week, the two former members of Wolfmother reportedly plan on making their side project into a full-fledged band. Bassist-keyboardist Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett performed as Doom Buggy last year at a small show in Sydney, Australia. As evidenced by the above video, Doom Buggy have a more psychedelic/krautrock sound than the stoner metal of Wolfmother. Doom Buggy was also the name of a Milwaukee band, so Ross and Heskett should be prepared to rename their group Doom Buggy AUS for their Stateside visits. Stockdale, meanwhile, plans on restocking Wolfmother soon with new members in order to get to work on the band's second album. A Sydney session musician has reportedly already filled one of the two vacancies. Although Wolfmother announced their split last week, the band might have made the decision to break up more than a month ago, but opted to stay together for their headlining performance at the Splendour in the Grass festival, which was ultimately their last concert together.
