Mammoth WVH, the hard-rock band led by Wolfgang Van Halen, has signed a global record deal with BMG for its forthcoming second studio album. The band has also signed a publishing deal with BMG.

“The Mammoth team and I are so excited to now be a part of the BMG family,” Van Halen said in a statement. “The entire team have welcomed us with open arms and have been nothing short of wonderful. I couldn’t ask for better partners for the future of Mammoth.”

The BMG release, coming this summer, will follow Mammoth WVH’s 2021 self-titled debut on EX1 Records. That set reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, as well as No. 12 on the Billboard 200. It also included two No. 1s on the Mainstream Rock Airplay chart — “Distance” and “Don’t Back Down” — while a third song, “Epiphany,” reached No. 9. The group became the first act to send its first two songs to No. 1 on that chart since The Glorious Sons in 2019.

At the time of the debut album’s release, Van Halen, who played every instrument on the effort, told Billboard, “I’m so proud of this record and have never worked harder on anything in my life. This is only the beginning. Thank you for being a part of this journey with me.”

Van Halen, the son of late rock god Eddie Van Halen, previewed the new album at Los Angeles’ 5150 Studio in Los Angeles March 6-7. The group’s name comes from the original moniker for his father’s band, Van Halen.

Dan Gill, BMG executive vp of recorded music, said in a statement, “It is rare to come across an artist with such exceptional musical abilities and Wolfgang is that shining example. His new album firmly establishes himself at the forefront of the genre and is destined to become the torch bearer for the new generation of Rock artists.”

Emi Horikawa, BMG vp of creative, added, “From our very first listen to Mammoth WVH, we knew this was something truly exceptional. Wolfgang’s songwriting and sense of melody, coupled with his ability to reinvent the elements of Rock’s power and energy, is sheer talent. We are proud to represent his music publishing and now call BMG his label home.”
