Wolfgang Van Halen streams new single You’re To Blame

Wolfgang Van Halen is streaming his new single, “You’re To Blame”, as the latest preview to his forthcoming Mammoth WVH album debut.

The tune follows the project’s lead single, “Distance”, as the second track issued in advance of the June 11 release, which the rocker worked on with producer Michael Baskette.

After multiple tours playing bass in Van Halen, Wolfgang set out to establish his own musical identity by writing all of the songs and performing all of the instrumentation and vocals for the project while carrying on the family’s history with his new music.

“The name Mammoth is really special to me,” says Wolfgang. “Not only was it the name of Van Halen before it became Van Halen, but my father was also the lead singer. Ever since my dad told me this, I always thought that when I grew up, I’d call my own band Mammoth, because I loved the name so much.

“I’m so thankful that my father was able to listen to, and enjoy the music I made. Nothing made me happier than seeing how proud he was that I was continuing the family legacy.”

Eddie Van Halen passed away last October at the age of 65 after a lengthy battle with cancer.
