British indie rockers, and one of Australia’s most loved acts, The Wombats will be touring Australia in June 2022!
The Wombats’ welcomed trip to Australia will follow a bunch of huge shows for the band with them taking to the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival and Neighbourhood Weekender this year, plus their biggest ever UK headline tour scheduled for 2022.
Following the cathartic ‘Method To The Madness’, The Wombats’ new single ‘If You Ever Leave, I'm Coming With You’ is an infectious electro-pop ode to obsessive devotion. It is the second track to be released from The Wombats’ upcoming album, Fix Yourself, Not The World, and is BBC Radio 1’s Future Sounds Hottest Record In The World.
The Wombats’ upcoming album was recorded remotely over the past year from each member’s respective home, with frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy based in Los Angeles, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen in Oslo and drummer Dan Haggis in London. The band worked with producers Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers), Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey), Paul Meaney (Twenty One Pilots, Nothing But Thieves), Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag‘n’Bone Man) and Mike Crossey (The 1975, The War on Drugs, Yungblud) on the record. Fix Yourself, Not The World is some of the most captivating, inventive and forward-thinking music of the band’s career to date.
The Wombats have toured the globe countless times during their 15-year career and played sets at the world’s major music festivals including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Glastonbury. They’ve remained favourites for Australian crowds, with three albums gracing the ARIA top 5, and multiple performances over the years at Splendour in the Grass, Groovin’ The Moo and Falls Festival.
