Wolfgang Van Halen Says His New Two Songs Will Show Different Sides Of Mammoth WVH’s Sound
Former Van Halen bassist and currently the member of his own solo band MammothWVH, Wolfgang Van Halen opened up about his newly released two singles, ‘Don’t Back Down’ and ‘Think It Over’ from his upcoming debut studio album during a recent interview with Ultimate Classic Rock.
As many of you know, after the disbandment of Van Halen towards the ending of 2020 due to the loss of the iconic guitarist Eddie Van Halen, Wolfgang Van Halen decided to embark on a solo career with his solo band Mammoth WVH.
His debut single as MammothWVH was a tribute song, ‘Distance’ to his deceased father Eddie Van Halen and gained huge recognition and success upon its release. The success followed after Wolfgang released his second single ‘You’re to Blame,’ and now fans have been craving for more until the self-titled debut studio album comes.
Luckily, MammothWVH founder recently shared a post on his official Twitter page announcing another single release named ‘Don’t Back Down’ which sounded heavier and quite different from the previous tracks thank to the little sneak peek Wolfgang allowed his fans to see.
Former Van Halen bassist felt generous with his songs apparently since in addition to releasing ‘Don’t Back Down,’ he also released another single named ‘Think It Over’ which is also far different than other songs released so far due to the fact that it leans on the pop side rather than the expected rock tune from Wolfgang. According to the young musician, all four singles demonstrates each of different aspects of his music.
Here i shwta Wolfgang said:
“Everyone’s stuck at home, so why not more music? And also to show two different sides of our sound. We got that with ‘Distance’ and ‘You’re to Blame’ before. And now you’re gonna hear that with ‘Don’t Back Down’ and ‘Think It Over,’ kind of opposite sides of the spectrum.
Overall it’s just kind of a fun little pop song. I guess the closest of one of my favorite influences that I could relate to that song would be Jimmy Eat World. The little bridge before the last chorus has that harmonized palm-muted guitar thing from ’The Middle,’ that sort of vibe.”
