Wolfgang Van Halen has shared another single from his Mammoth WVH solo project. The son of the late Eddie Van Halen has unveiled the eponymous track “Mammoth”, the sixth (!) song released thus far from his highly anticipated debut album, due out June 11th.
The track is another slice of melodic heavy rock. Wolfgang’s accomplished vocals give off a summer-y ’90s power pop vibe, and the song’s central riff sounds like something Eddie would have played.
The Mammoth WVH LP is finally about to drop after a slew of promotional singles have given fans a big taste of what to expect. The debut single “Distance” — which was accompanied by a touching video compiling home movies of Eddie and Wolfgang — reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart, launching Wolfgang’s solo career in style.
The runaway success of “Distance” led to an amended tracklist for the album. The song initially didn’t make the cut for the LP, but has been added as a bonus track due its popularity among fans.
Mammoth WVH made their television debut back in February, performing a full-band version of “Distance” on Kimmel before stripping back to an acoustic format for an equally powerful performance on NBC’s TODAY. Another single, the heavy-hitting “Don’t Back Down”, features a music video that showcases Wolfgang playing every instrument. Safe to say, talent runs in the family.
