Wolfmother haven’t played the U.S. in three years, but they will end that drought on Monday, July 15, with the first of three Los Angeles-area shows. The initial show at the Troubadour sold out quickly, so the band booked a second gig at the Troub next Monday, July 22, which also sold out fast. The Aussie rockers also added a gig at the Observatory in Santa Ana, Calif. on July 17. The shows definitely come as a surprise as Andrew Stockdale retired the Wolfmother name earlier this year, choosing to use his own name to promote his music moving forward.

These new Wolfmother dates come after¬†Stockdale canceled the bulk of his summer tour dates in North America. He had planned to tour in support of his solo album ‘Keep Moving.’ He also discussed the possibility of doing another Wolfmother record and then these shows were booked.

If the fact that he has canceled solo dates and revived Wolfmother for L.A. gigs is any indication, it appears as though the band is getting back together. Original band members Chris Ross and Myles Heskett bolted in 2008. But keyboardist/bassist Ian Peres, who was a member from 2009 through 2013, is participating in the reunion, a fact that seemed to be confirmed when Stockdale posted the Instagram photo below.

Further mucking things up is the fact that the Troubadour posted a photo of the original lineup in their announcement of the shows, so there is still some confusion as to WHO will be in the band playing these shows.
