Rolling Stone magazine just posted an interview with Matt about the upcoming album and it will be out September 22nd of this year!
They also have the full track for the song “Time Can’t Wait” in the article – I have it embedded below for your earhole’s pleasure.
I was surprised to read that Matt wouldn’t be drumming on this album – instead has the rhythm section from David Bowie’s “Blackstar” album consisting of drummer Mark Guiliana and bassist Tim Lefebvre. I loved “Blackstar” so I have high hopes.
It doesn’t sound like there are plans to tour with this album (NOOOOOO!), which is a bummer. Go read the article for more details.
Titled “Cavedweller” – there’s very little details out there other than the Instagram post. What rumors I could find is that it’ll be released September 22nd and most likely through the Pearl Jam Ten Club Store.
I’ll post more details once I find actual confirmation of these details.
John’s been posting up some sneak peeks to his upcoming “LP/CD/Whatever” Accidental Soundtracks on YouTube! OMG.
The track First Earth Battalion is a nice, groovy instrumental. I hate to say it, because John probably hates them, but it sounds a bit like 2000’s era Blur or The Good The Bad and The Queen. (please don’t hate me)
Give it a listen, would ya?

I just got done converting my old, single-page HTML document of news and updates to WordPress blog posts, backdated to the original publish date.
I can’t believe how much has changed over the past 9 years since I did the last update of the WWC homepage!
We never did get the information on the fan club single…so I’ll let you know if anything changes. 😉
Also, my apologies for having the site be broken for so long. Something about life getting in the way…blah blah blah. I get it. I slacked off.
So, I’ve spent literally the last 8 months fixing and converting the Wellwater Conspiracy Homepage to run on modern web servers and to use a content management system that will automatically stay up-to-date so those fucking “Warning: include(content/.html) [function.include]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory” errors will ever happen again. I promise!
Take a look around, let me know if shit is broken, and reminisce on the good ol’ days of the Conspiracy.
Ex-Soundgarden and Monster Magnet members flaunt their love of garage rock.
I don’t say so, of course, but immediately upon arriving for my interview with the Wellwater Conspiracy at Space Studios I’m overcome with jealousy. The studio is minutes from downtown but so inconspicuous that it feels like a secret hideaway. I’m greeted at the door by Chuck, a big friendly dog, and led into a room with a drum kit, a mess of keyboards (not fancy new ones but cool, well-worn vintage types), and a few guitars. There’s a cozy corner for lounging, with a view of Lake Union. This is the kind of place I should be spending all my afternoons, I think. If only my parents had let me have those drums instead of that damn trumpet when I was 10, maybe I would be.
