One of the UK’s most popular guitar-driven indie rock acts, The Wombats were formed in Liverpool in the early ’00s by two Scousers and a Norwegian – aka vocalist and guitarist Matthew “Murph” Murphy, percussionist Dan Haggis and bass guitarist Tord Øverland Knudsen. They met while attending the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts and began releasing EPs in 2004.
Something of an in joke, their name came from calling each other “wombat” whenever they made stupid mistakes. Plus in their early years, the three-piece took a giant stuffed wombat called Cherub to their gigs, calling him their fourth band member.
In May 2021, The Wombats released the R&B-infused single Method To The Madness. Their first new material since 2018, its demo was actually recorded at Murphy’s LA home in 2019, but due to the coronavirus pandemic the track had to be finished remotely over the following year from the band members’ respective homes.
The Wombats confirmed their appearance at Reading & Leeds 2021 edition, as well as announced a huge show at London’s O2 arena in April 2022. In August 2021, they announced their fifth studio album Fix Yourself, Not The World would come out on 7 January 2022 plus added five more dates in Leeds, Cardiff, Glasgow, Liverpool and Scarborough for spring 2022 as part of their All The Hits! tour.
