It has only been 15 months since the long-awaited debut album from Mammoth WVH was released to the world to critical and commercial acclaim. Mammoth WVH was the culmination of years of work and dedication by the musical mastermind Wolfgang Van Halen. After two successful tours across the United States with Guns N’ Roses and Dirty Honey, numerous high-profile appearances including national television performances, two #1 singles at Active Rock radio and a GRAMMY nomination for his first single “Distance,” Mammoth WVH is releasing a digital deluxe edition of the debut album on November 11th via EX1 Records. The new digital deluxe features the bonus track from the Japanese version of the album, “Talk & Walk,” as well as two previously unreleased tracks: “As Long As You’re Not You” and “Goodbye.” The debut album was produced by Michael “Elvis” Baskette and the digital deluxe edition is now available for pre-order here: https://found.ee/MammothWVHDeluxe

To coincide with the announcement of the digital deluxe edition of Mammoth WVH, a new single is being released to the world. “Talk & Walk” appeared on the Japanese version of the album but hasn’t been available anywhere else until now. The song found its way in to various setlists while Mammoth WVH was on tour in 2021 and became an immediate favorite from those that heard it live. The new track is available via all digital service providers and can be found here: https://found.ee/TalkWalk.

The digital deluxe edition track listing for Mammoth WVH is:

1.   Mr. Ed

       2.   Horribly Right

       3.   Epiphany

       4.   Don’t Back Down

       5.   Resolve

Writing all of the songs and performing all of the instrumentation and vocals for the debut albumWolfgang 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. The first two singles, “Distance” and “Don’t Back Down,” found their way to the #1 spot at Active Rock Radio. The single “Distance” was also nominated for a GRAMMY in the Best Rock Song category that saw Wolfgang Van Halen nominated alongside the Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney, Kings of Leon and Weezer. Recently, Wolfgang made headlines performing at the Taylor Hawkins Tribute show in London alongside Justin Hawkins, Dave Grohl and Josh Freese.  

Mammoth WVH shows no signs of slowing down as the band will be touring extensively in late 2022 and early 2023 with longtime friends Alter Bridge. The band has dates in Europe in November and December with Alter Bridge and Halestorm. Then after a short break to continue work on the sophomore album, the band will hit the road across North America as direct support for Alter Bridge starting in January 2023 and wrapping up in April 2023.

About Mammoth WVH:

First impressions last a lifetime. Wolfgang Van Halen has prepared a lifetime to make his first impression with his solo band Mammoth WVH. The songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist worked tirelessly on material that would become his debut album – released on June 11, 2021 via EX1 Records as a part of his partnership with Explorer1 Music Group. Playing every instrument and singing each and every note, his music presents a personal and powerful perspective, balancing memorable hooks and tight technicality. As many times as audiences have experienced his talent alongside the likes of Tremonti, Clint Lowery, and of course, Van Halen, Wolfgang has seized the spotlight with his own brand – Mammoth WVH.


Two of today’s most dynamic live bands, Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey, are joining forces to bring their kick-ass rock’n’roll out on a 31-date, co-headline North American tour. The “Young Guns” tour begins on February 20 in Denver, CO and will see the bands alternating the closing slot throughout the tour. Tickets for all dates are on sale now and can be purchased HERE

“We played one co-headline show with Dirty Honey back in September. As soon as the night was over, we knew this would be a great package to take across the US. We couldn’t be more excited to share the stage with them and give all of the fans an unforgettable night of rock music,” explains Wolfgang Van Halen.

Both of these “young guns” spent their summer on high-profile U.S. tours – Dirty Honey with The Black Crowes and Mammoth WVH with Guns N’ Roses. With only two live gigs under their collective belt, Mammoth WVH’s tour initiation was a baptism-by-fire, opening for the iconic Guns N’ Roses in stadiums. At the end of the tour, in Hollywood, Florida, Guns N’ Roses brought Wolfgang Van Halen back onstage to join them performing “Paradise City.”

“Dirty Honey and Mammoth WVH are two of the best new, real, emerging rock bands we have today.

Touring together will prove that rock is far from dead, and will no doubt showcase its very bright future.”

— Eddie Trunk • TrunkNation Sirius XM Radio

After selling out their U.S. headline tour last June, Dirty Honey brought their sexy, bluesy rock’n’roll to amphitheaters with The Black Crowes. Vocalist Marc LaBelle grew up listening to the Crowes, so this tour was truly a dream come true. Winning over those who had primarily come to see The Black Crowes, Dirty Honey received standing ovations at the majority of the tour’s 35 shows. Not bad for a still-breaking, opening act.

The “Young Guns” tour is in support of both artist’s self-titled debut albums; Mammoth WVH and Dirty Honey, both released earlier this year. Both bands saw their debut singles – Dirty Honey’s “When I’m Gone” and Mammoth WVH’s “Distance” – occupy the #1 position on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart. In addition, both bands’ debut albums made quite impressive bows; Mammoth WVH debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums chart, and Dirty Honey – the band, totally independent with no label affiliation – claimed the #2 position on that chart.

“People who come to our shows are going to see two bands who are looking to prove that rock’n’roll is definitely very much alive and well,” said Dirty Honey’s Marc LaBelle. “We both carry the weight of that on our shoulders, and there’s a lot to prove.”
