Wolfgang Van Halen has released “You’re To Blame”, the second single from his solo band, MAMMOTH WVH. The track is taken from MAMMOTH WVH’s self-titled debut album, due on June 11 via Explorer1 Music Group/EX1 Records.

Watch “You’re To Blame”below.

pre-order for “Mammoth WVH” is available in various configurations, including exclusive color vinyl as well as limited autographed copies, via the band’s online store. Fans that pre-order the album digitally will receive instant downloads of the single “Distance” and “The Howard Stern Show”-premiered track “You’re To Blame”. Both songs will be available via all global digital streaming partners as well.

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. The current single “Distance” — written as a tribute to Wolfgang’s father and guitar icon Eddie Van Halen — is another side of “Mammoth WVH” and is currently No. 3 at Active Rock Radio. The emotional video has been viewed four million times on YouTube. The song was not originally intended to be on the debut album, but due to the overwhelming response, it has been added as a bonus track. All of Wolfgang’s proceeds from “Distance” are being donated to Mr. Holland’s Opus.

Last November, Wolfgang confirmed that he asked his father for permission to use the MAMMOTH WVH band name for his solo project. MAMMOTH WVH is a nod to family history — Eddie and Alex Van Halen’s band was called MAMMOTH when singer David Lee Roth first joined it in 1974.
