The Wombats have announced a tour across the UK & Ireland in March 2018! Pre-sale opens on Wednesday 9am and tickets go on general sale next Friday 17th November at 9am here.
The band have also announced full details of their fourth studio album, ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’, due for release this February 9th 2018. Listen to brand new single ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’ below.
‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ sees The Wombats continuing to assert themselves as one of the biggest and best guitar pop sensations of our time. The band’s March 2018 UK tour includes a huge headline show at Alexandra Palace on Tuesday 17th March.
Having premiered as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1, ‘Lemon to A Knife Fight’ rides a push-pull rollercoaster of euphoria and desperation, delivered with the band’s signature animation and wit.
“I wanted to make an album that had more swagger, was a bit more laid back, something that wasn’t punching you in the face every time you listen to it,” Murph explains. “On every level, musically and interpersonally, we’re much closer.”
“The last album was about me meeting someone and my life going upside down in Los Angeles, partying too hard and getting myself in trouble,” Murph explains. “This album is about me battling against that, trying to live an adult life. And failing.”
Together, the Liverpool-formed trio have created a record that’s still instantly sing-along but demands to be taken seriously. Full UK tour dates below.
