Wolfmother Disband
Australian award winning rock band Wolfmother has broken up, citing long-standing personal and musical differences. Bass/keyboard player Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett have resigned from the band, effective immediately, leaving just singer/guitarist Andrew Stockdale. According to a statement on the band's website, Stockdale plans to find other musicians before making a new Wolfmother album. "Wolfmother toured the world virtually non-stop through 2006 and early 2007 on the back of their acclaimed self titled debut album," the statement said. "Longstanding frictions within the group then led them to take an extended break during the second half of 2007 to consider their future." The final straw came at the weekend where Wolfmother headlined last Sunday at the Splendour In The Grass Festival in Byron Bay. "Following that show Chris Ross decided to announce that he was leaving the band due to irreconcilable personal and musical differences," the statement said. "Myles Heskett has also decided to leave the band rather than continuing as part of a changed lineup. The pair has been working together on songs for some time and they plan to focus their energies on that new project in the future." Stockdale, Heskett and Ross will make no public statements. "They simply ask all Wolfmother fans to please understand that in spite of their best efforts over a long period of time, they just could not find a harmonious way to work together and that has led to the decisions announced today," the statement said. Thanks for the info to BrisbaneTimes.
