Just yesterday, Wolfgang Van Halen's solo band, Mammoth WVH, released a new single – "You're to Blame" – and announced the details of their self-titled debut album.
Later in the evening, the band – featuring Van Halen on vocals and guitar, Frank Sidoris and Jon Jourdan on guitar, Ronnie Ficarro on bass, and Garrett Whitlock on the drums – made their live debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live with an emotional performance of "Distance," Wolfgang's tribute to his late father, Eddie Van Halen.
You can check out the band's performance above.
Featuring Wolfgang Van Halen handling all vocal and instrumental duties, Mammoth WVH is set for a June 11 release via EX1 Records/Explorer1 Music Group.
Mammoth WVH is available for pre-order now in a number of formats: including autographed CD, exclusive color vinyl, digital, and more.
