Wolf Van Halen Explains Why He Decided To Play All The Instruments On Mammoth WVH Album
Mammoth WVH founder and former Van Halen bassist, Wolfgang Van Halen opened up about the reason behind his decision to play all the instruments on his own for his self-titled debut studio album during an interview with Indulge, and apparently, he wanted to challenge himself and see if he can do it all by himself.
As many of you already know, Wolfgang Van Halen has his own solo band now named Mammoth WVH and has already released four singles from his upcoming debut studio album, a tribute song to his father, ‘Distance,’ was released in November 2020, followed by ‘You’re to Blame’ and most recently released two brand new singles, ‘Don’t Back Down,’ and ‘Think It Over.’
Mammoth WVH founder’s self-titled debut studio album is going to be released on June 11, 2021, and fans cannot wait to hear more from Wolfgang as his first four singles welcomed by his fans thanks to their versatility and characteristics that belonged to none other than Wolfgang himself.
It’s no surprise that all of the songs have unity when it comes to their sound and spirit since former Van Halen bassist preferred to go to the studio alone and play all the instruments by himself along with recording all the vocals as well for his debut studio album.
During a recent interview, Wolfgang Van Halen asked about his decision to take all the responsibility and work on his shoulders, and apparently, his motive behind this action was to challenge himself along with the need to see if he can manage to do everything on his own. On top of pulling it off, Wolfgang actually revealed that he had fun during the recordings and can’t wait to do all of it again.
Here is what Wolfgang said:
“I just figured since I could play everything, I wanted to see if I could do it. Basically, I just wanted to see. And then, since I could — at least I think I could; I guess it’s up to everybody else to decide — I had such a fun time in the studio that I’m looking forward to getting back in there and doing it.”
