Aussie rockers Wolfmother are touring the country right now as the special guest support act for veterans AC/DC.

Take40.com caught up with front man Andrew Stockdale last week to chat about life on the road with one of Australia's biggest rock bands.

Stockdale said at one show there was no air-conditioning backstage...

"There was no air-con so it was really hot... so we were just sitting in a small room just kind of dazed... and then when we walked out there, we gave it our all."

Watch Wolfmother perform their brand new single 'White Feather' live at Guitar Hero 5 Take 40 Live!

We asked Andrew if the rumours of AC/DC inhaling oxygen before their gigs was true -- apparently you don't touch their oxygen!

"Noooo... that's their oxygen! You don't mess with other people's oxygen!" Stockdale laughed.

You can catch Wolfmother on tour with AC/DC this Thursday 18th February in Sydney. Full list of dates here.
