Good news for fans of ass-kicking Australian bands: Wolfmother are hard at work on a new album. According to singer Andrew Stockdale, the band is looking to release the as-yet-untitled album early next year. "It's kind of cinematic, and it's kind of epic," Stockdale says of the new disc. "But there's also this fully aggressive side that's undeniably explosive." Wolfmother have yet to select a producer, but Stockdale says they have about ten songs ready to go, including a track called "Back Home," which is one of the singer-guitarist's favorites. "Other bands are like, 'Yeah, we wrote sixty songs and edited it down to this,'" says Stockdale, who's been writing both at his new house in Brisbane and while vacationing in Byron Bay. "We spend a lot of time on each song, crafting it, changing the key, changing the arrangement, and so on. We don't like to write thousands of songs."
