Wolfgang will have more than just his recent hit single “Distance” to work with. He’s said in recent interviews he expects to release a full studio album this spring.
Mammoth WVH: “Distance”
In his recent interview on Sirius/XM’s Trunk Nation Wolfgang was asked by host Eddie Trunk if he plans to include Van Halen songs in his setlist:
“Absolutely not. If I do, I’d want it to be, like, really fucking different,” said Wolfgang. “I wouldn’t wanna just sit there and play ‘Ain’t Talkin’ ‘Bout Love’. I’d wanna do a cool acoustic cover of ‘Little Guitars’ or some shit — something different. I refuse to tread the same ground as my dad. I need to forge my own path.”
Performing alongside Wolfgang, who will handle lead vocals and guitar, will be guitarist Frank Sidoris (Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators), drummer Garrett Whitlock (Tremonti) and bassist Ronnie Ficarro (Falling in Reverse).
