Out today (June 11th) is Wolfgang Van Halen's debut album, the self-titled set billed to his band Mammoth WVH. The 14-track collection features the son of the late-Eddie Van Halen and actress Valerie Bertinelli, handling all the writing, performing, and production duties.
Mammoth WVH will serve as the opening act for Guns' N Roses on their summer tour, which kicks off on July 31st in Hershey, Pennsylvania at Hersheypark Stadium and winds down over two nights — October 2nd and 3rd — at Hollywood, Florida's Hard Rock Live Arena.
Wolfgang spoke about the new album, telling People.com, “It's as personal as can be. Songwriting is a really therapeutic thing for me, so I was working out a lot of stuff with these songs. Most of my lyrics are written at something or someone. It's almost like an amalgamation of . . . You know how you always win arguments in the shower? It's like that. It's like anybody who's ever done me wrong or used me, or lied to me, amalgamate into this one being that I write lyrics at.”
