Norwegian Glam Metal act WIG WAM went from being on the verge of their final break-up after 20 years, to 25 million+ Spotify streams. It was all thanks to an unlikely WIG WAM fan and renowned Hollywood director, James Gunn. Gunn chose the band’s 2010 song “Do Ya Wanna Taste It” as the opening theme for his hit HBO MAX television series Peacemaker. The series also features WIG WAM’s 2005 Eurovision Song Contest entry “In My Dreams”.

Capitalizing on their new found celebrity, WIG WAM is set to tour the US and Australia for the first time ever this year, and they are also set to release their 7th studio album, Out Of The Dark, on February 10, 2023 through Frontiers Music. I had the chance to catch up with frontman Åge Sten Nilsen ahead of the album’s release.

Highlights include:

-Discussion of new album Out Of The Dark
-Stories behind the singles
-Did their recent success bring them closer together
-The reality of ‘day jobs’ getting in the way
-What lead to their 2007 break-up
-James Gunn selecting their music for the Peacemaker TV series
-The doors opened for WIG WAM because of it
-Work visa issues
-1st US & Australian tours
-His new songwriting deal
-Other music projects
-Working with John Norum (EUROPE)
-And much, much more
