With their band new album ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ due for release this Friday February 9th via Kobalt Music Recordings, and a sold-out UK tour beginning this March 9th, The Wombats have revealed a brand new track in ‘Black Flamingo’.

 

Prior releases ‘Lemon to a Knife Fight’, ‘Turn’, and ‘Cheetah Tongue’ have already received over 10 million Spotify streams in a couple of months, and huge support from BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’, R1 B-List, Huw Stephens, Greg James, Radio X daytime, and more.

 

Where the official music video for ‘Lemon to a Knife Fight’ spun a horror trope with a Lynchian twist, the new video for current single ‘Cheetah Tongue’ introduces spandex-clad seniors burning calories in a very unique workout regime.

 

Produced by Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man) and Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice), the album finds The Wombats pushing the boundaries of alt-pop innovation with a lush, ultramodern indie soundscape, irrepressible hooks and tragi-comic lyricism belied by a newfound maturity and moving emotional depth.

 

2015’s ‘Glitterbug’ album, that debuted in the Top 5 UK Album Chart and Billboard 100, has received over 200 million digital streams, surpassing even the band’s euphoric hit singles ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’, ‘Moving To New York’ and ‘Kill The Director’, that established them as chart-quashing champions of the noughties guitar pop explosion.

 

2017 saw the Liverpool-bred trio headline Brixton Academy (which sold-out in under 24 hours), as well as two sold-out nights at the Sydney Opera House. Last week, the band closed a sold-out headline tour of North America, and will be joining Weezer and The Pixies across their summer 2018 co-headline tour of the US. March 2018 will see a sold-out UK tour on the dates detailed below, followed by a European tour through April.
