Reviewed by Sam Lowry

The Woggles’ upcoming album, ‘Time Has Come,’ heralds a triumphant return for the cult garage rock band, promising a dynamic fusion of rock, soul, and vintage R&B.

The announcement of The Woggles' latest album, 'Time Has Come,' set for release on May 31st via Wicked Cool Records, marks a significant moment for fans of the cult garage rock band. This upcoming 12-track album, adorned with artwork by Scott Sugiuchi, serves as their first studio full-length since 2017's 'Tally Ho!'. The anticipation builds upon the heels of their recent single release, "Mr. Last Chance" (backed with "The Will O' The Wisp"), which hit the airwaves last fall.

Excitement escalates as digital pre-saves offer instant gratification with four tracks: "Hole In My Heart," "Nothing More To Say," "Flesh Hammer," and the aforementioned "Mr. Last Chance." The album promises a fresh musical journey, featuring the signature twin guitar assault of Graham Day and Shane Pringle, alongside notable contributions from musicians like Little Steven, Greg Cartwright, and Pat Beers.

Drummer Dan Eletxro sheds light on the emotional depth of one of the tracks, stating, "You can drown all the sorrows you want on a barstool but eventually the booze recedes and you’re left to sweep up all the pieces of broken heart and shattered dreams."

Frontman “The Professor” Mighty Manfred, known for his weekday DJ stint on Little Steven's Underground Garage/SiriusXm Channel 21, shares his enthusiasm for the album, describing it as "a tonnage of new tuneage" that embodies the band's ethos of relentless progression.

The Woggles, now featuring a dynamic two-guitar attack with Graham Day and Shane Pringle, continue to redefine their sound while staying true to their roots. With a lineup boasting decades of experience, including collaborations with legendary figures like Johnny Cash and Link Wray, The Woggles' impact on the music scene remains profound.

In the words of Manfred, "The band is not as much an institution as a way of life... the shark has got to keep moving." Their music, a fusion of rock, soul, and vintage R&B, transcends boundaries, resonating with audiences worldwide.

As anticipation mounts for 'Time Has Come,' The Woggles' legacy as stalwarts of garage rock persists, their music continuing to inspire and invigorate listeners, one electrifying riff at a time.
