The day has finally come as the self-titled debut by Mammoth WVH is now available worldwide via EX1 Records/ Explorer1 Music Group. The record – from its creative mastermind Wolfgang Van Halen – showcases the incredible musicianship and songwriting of Wolfgang as he plays every instrument and sings every vocal on the record. Fans have been able to experience the direction of the album through the six previously released tracks: “Distance,” “You’re To Blame,” “Don’t Back Down,” “Think It Over,” “Feel” and “Mammoth.“ The band just released a live video of the current Top 15 Rock single “Don’t Back Down” that showcases the live band Wolfgang has assembled to bring the debut album to life. Supporting Wolfgang – who will handle guitar and vocals live – is guitarists Frank Sidoris and Jon Jourdan, bassist Ronnie Ficarro and drummer Garrett Whitlock. The live performance video for “Don’t Back Down” can be seen here: http://found.ee/DontBackDownLive.

Writing all the songs and performing all the instrumentation and vocals for the debut album, Wolfgang Van Halen set out to establish his own musical identity. From the rocking opening guitar riff on album opener “Mr. Ed” to the driving bass and drums on album closer “Stone,” Mammoth WVH showcases the various musical influences that have inspired Wolfgang. Songs like “Resolve,” “The Big Picture” and “Think It Over” are all sonically different from each other but unique to what Mammoth WVHis. Mammoth WVH made their television performance debuts of the first single “Distance” last month as an electric performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and an exclusive acoustic arrangement on NBC News TODAY.
It was also recently announced that Wolfgang Van Halen would host his own radio show for SiriusXM’s Classic Rewind (Channel 25).
