With the band in the middle of an extensive European tour and their debut single Another Celebration at the End of the World (listen here) in the Top 10 at Active Rock radio in the US, Mammoth WVH – the brainchild of Wolfgang Van Halen – is releasing another song from the upcoming album. Take A Bow is the third song released from the 10-track album Mammoth II that is slated for release on August 4th via BMG.

Take A Bow is the longest track on the record and in the Mammoth WVH catalog clocking in at 6:54. The song is anchored by Wolfgang’s memorable lyrics, driving rhythm section and unforgettable guitar solo that was played on the original Frankenstein guitar and through his father’s original amps. The song is available via all digital service providers and anyone that pre-orders the album digitally will receive the track as an instant download. A lyric video for the new song can be seen below.

“It was the last song we finished. It’s officially the longest song I’ve released to date, and I feel the guitar solo is really special. I played the solo on the original Frankenstein guitar and through Dad’s original Marshall head and one of the original cabinets. It’s straight up what he used on the earliest Van Halen records. It makes me happy to capture some of dad’s history on this song forever,” explains Wolfgang.
