Wolfgang Van Halen streams lead single from new Mammoth WVH album

Wolfgang Van Halen is streaming a video for “Another Celebration At The End Of The World”, the lead single from the forthcoming album “Mammoth II.”

Due August 4, the follow-up to the Van Halen prodigy’s 2021 self-titled debut once again sees the rocker recording all the instruments and vocals with producer Michael Baskette for the brand’s first album as part of a new deal with BMG.

“Mammoth II” showcases the growth of Wolfgang as a songwriter, musician and vocalist; songs like “Take A Bow”, "Like A Pastime" and "Waiting" are all sonically different from each other but a part of the multi-faceted sonic identity of the project.

The video for "Another Celebration At The End Of The World" picks up where 2021’s “Don’t Back Down” clip left off: it showcases a frustrated Wolfgang firing the other Wolfgang's from that video and replacing them with his live band featuring guitarists Frank Sidoris and Jon Jourdan, bassist Ronnie Ficarro and drummer Garrett Whitlock.

"I knew that I wanted the new album to contain elements of what people heard on the debut, but also giving me a chance to branch out a bit,” says Wolfgang. “'Another Celebration At The End Of the World' is definitely a song that showcases what people can expect from the new album. It is a high-energy rocker with some fun guitar moments on it. I also pushed myself vocally and it is a song I can't wait to get out and play live. I can see it being a fixture in our live set moving forward."

Currently playing North American shows with Alter Bridge, Mammoth WVH will head to Europe late next month to begin playing a mix of headline dates, festivals and events with Metallica.
