With less than 4 weeks remaining until the global release of the self-titled debut, Mammoth WVH is releasing the sixth song from the album. The song “Mammoth” is now available via all digital service providers today and fans that pre-order the record digitally will get an instant download of the song along with the previously released “Distance,” “You’re To Blame,” Don’t Back Down,” “Think It Over” and “Feel.” Wolfgang Van Halen describes “Mammoth” as the song that most encompasses the overall vibe of the debut album. The song is a driving rock track with inspirational lyrics that Wolfgang sings: “Hey you. Anything is possible. You’re not the only one. Yeah. Let ‘em think you’re unremarkable and prove them wrong.” A lyric video featuring classic black & white footage of people watching TV as the lyrics roll on screen is now available and can be seen here: https://found.ee/MammothLyricVideo.
The long-awaited, self-titled debut album from Mammoth WVH will be available worldwide on June 11th via EX1 Records/ Explorer1 Music Group.

Writing all of the songs and performing all of the instrumentation and vocals for the debut album, Wolfgang Van Halen set out to establish his own musical identity. From the rocking opening guitar riff on album opener “Mr. Ed” to the driving bass and drums on album closer “Stone,” Mammoth WVH showcases the various musical influences that have inspired Wolfgang. Songs like “Resolve,” “The Big Picture” and “Think It Over” are all sonically different from each other but unique to what Mammoth WVH is. Mammoth WVH made their television performance debuts of the first single “Distance” last month as an electric performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and an exclusive acoustic arrangement on NBC News TODAY. Mammoth WVH has select touring appearances in Texas, Minnesota, Kentucky, and California currently on-sale with more to be announced soon.
