With two days to go until his sophomore album Mammoth II is available worldwide via BMG, Mammoth WVH
the brainchild of Wolfgang Van Halen – is releasing a music video for another song from the album. The next single “I’m Alright” is another rocker featuring a driving drumbeat, a hypnotic piano riff and a blistering guitar solo that features his uncle – Patrick Bertinelli – on wah pedal operation. The lines “Sorry – I’m so sorry – It’s kind of you to say – F@#k off and back away and let me breathe” are sentiments that are relatable to anyone and given extra bite with Wolfgang’s pointed delivery. The music video picks up after the video for “Another Celebration at the End of the World” where the former band of Wolfgangs – who have been fired from Mammoth WVH – start their own band Mammoth WWW and enter the same Battle of the Bands as Mammoth WVH. Hearing the band rehearsing “I’m Alright,” Mammoth WWW steals the song from Mammoth WVH to surprising results. Keeping it in the family on “I’m Alright,” Wolfgang’s mother -legendary actress and chef Valerie Bertinelli – also makes a cameo appearance in the video. The video marks the third video with director Gordy De St. Jeor and can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/uy0mCPvGFeY.
“’I’m Alright’ is the single that is coinciding with the album release. The video is really fun continuing the story that was established from ‘Don’t Back Down’ and ‘Another Celebration at the End of the World.’ I think it’s really funny that the lyrics are quite angry but delivered through the lens of sort of a comfy rock song. If there ever was an anthem for myself about standing up for what I believe I should be doing – as opposed to what people expect – this is certainly that song,” explains Wolfgang.
