Hailing from Liverpool, England, UK, Indie rock outfit, The Wombats, impressed with their first spate of singles, scoring hits with “Moving to New York” and “Let;s Dance to Joy Division.”

The band were formed in 2003, having met whilst studying at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts. Featuring Matthew Murphy (lead vocals, guitar, keyboard), Daniel Haggis (drums, percussion, backing vocals) and Tord Øverland Knudsen (bass, guitar, keyboards, backing vocals), the band quickly got to work making music, They released several Eps in their early years, including “The Hangover Sessions,” “No. 3” and “The Daring Adventures of Sgt. Wimbo and His Pet Otter.”

After releasing their debut, “Girls, Boys and Marsupials,” in Japan only, they then released a number of singles that would bring The Wombats their first taste of success. “Backfire at the Disco” peaked at number 35 in the UK SIngles Chart, followed by “Kill the Director” which also received lots of airplay. Their debut album on 14th Floor Records, “The Wombats Proudly Present: A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation,” stormed the album charts, reaching number 11 in October 2007, bolstered by the success of singles “Let’s Dance to Joy Division” and a re-release of “Moving to New York,” which went to number 13 in the UK Singles Chart.

In 2008, the band embarked on a number of tours, traveling across the UK, Europe and Japan. They also became a big name on the annual festival circuit, playing at Glastonbury Festival, Reading & Leeds Festival and T in the Park.Their second album, “The Wombats Present… This Modern Glitch,” appeared in 2010, featuring the top 40 single “Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)” as well as “Techno Fan.” The album itself faired well, reaching number three in the album chart.

It was three years before The Wombats returned with new music, releasing the single, “Your Body Is a Weapon,” which received significant support on BBC Radio 1. To great excitement, The Wombats began a countdown till the release of their third studio album, “Glitterbug,” for a January 2015 release.
