Having premiered as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1, the album’s first single ‘Lemon To A Knife Fight’ has been a fixture on Radio 1’s B-List and has currently received over 3 million Spotify streams alone.

Recent US single ‘Turn’ has also received over 3 million Spotify streams and is garnering much attention at alternative US radio.

Written from three corners of the globe – drummer Dan Haggis in London, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen  in Oslo and Murph in Los Angeles – ’Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ was created over long distance writing sessions, supplemented by intense two-week in-person sessions in Oslo.

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.

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 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.

After a highly successful North American headline tour this month, the band will join The PIxies and Weezer in the US in June and July, as well as the following sold-out UK headline shows in March.
