Stoner-rock heavyweights Wolfmother have made a significant impression on the American Billboard chart, with their eponymous CD debuting at #22 this week.

The album sold 34,005 copies in its first week. As a comparison, the debut CD of fellow retro-rockers Jet peaked at #26 on the same chart. ‘Wolfmother’ also debuted at #25 in the UK.

The rise of Wolfmother is showing no sign of abating. Their track ‘Love Train’ – a b-side to ‘White Unicorn’ in Australia, but an album track in the US and UK – features on the new iTunes and iPod ad. The band will also be supporting The Flaming Lips and Sonic Youth in Detroit, and have been included in the Netherlands and Belgium legs of Pearl Jam’s world tour.
