About this album

Cosmic Egg is the second studio album by Australian rock band Wolfmother, released on 23 October 2009. It is the first album by the second lineup of the band, featuring vocalist, songwriter and lead guitarist Andrew Stockdale, bassist and keyboardist Ian Peres, rhythm guitarist Aidan Nemeth and drummer Dave Atkins, formed in 2009 after original members Chris Ross and Myles Heskett left in August 2008. Upon its release, Cosmic Egg peaked at number three on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart, the same position as the band’s first album. The album was the only studio release by the band to feature Atkins, who left the band in April 2010 during the Cosmic Egg promotional tour cycle.

The album was recorded between April and May 2009 at Sound City Studios and Sunset Sound Studios in Los Angeles, California. The title of the album comes from a position in yoga described by frontman Stockdale as “like the fetal pose”.The album’s release was promoted throughout 2009 and 2010 by the New Moon Rising World Tour, beginning in September 2009 in Australia. The first song released from the album was the promotional digital download single “Back Round” on 2 June 2009; “New Moon Rising” was the first full single release from Cosmic Egg, on 25 August 2009.

    Play it LOUD! Can't get bored of any song. Full of brilliant epic ones, like Sundial, Far Away, In the Castle, Violence of the Sun and from the deluxe edition, Eyes Open and Caroline. Yeah...

    i'd say this is one of the best rock albums of bands 'recently' formed.

    this one is pretty mediocre compared to their debut... can't say it's bad though.

    They lost their stoner shit over here...some good songs and decent guitar solos in some songs...a very average album as compared to their first one...New Moon Rising is fucking kickass though!

    how is this worse? the previous was pure amateurism compared to this. who stumbles upon lyrics anyway? this is way more stoner than their other stuff, meaning they don't care about pussy, they're just playing what they wanna.

    I'm not a big fan of this one too. They sound more like fuckin nickelback or something... quite disappointing.
