Ahead of a huge main stage performance at Reading & Leeds Festival this weekend, The Wombats' step things up yet again by unveiling their highest profile and biggest UK headline tour to date. With six huge shows across the isles, including a night at London’s SSE Arena, the tour further cements the band’s meteoric rise to one of the country’s biggest guitar acts.
If beautiful people ruin The Wombats’ lives, the resulting album will make your year. Peaking at #3 in the UK album chart as the highest new entry of that week, the album has since been streamed over 80 million times on Spotify, with glowing album reviews from The Times, Evening Standard, Metro, Sunday Times Culture, Daily Telegraph, DORK and more.
Their latest single ‘Turn’ was Annie Mac’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1, and received heavy rotation from Huw Stephens, Clara Amfo, Phil Taggart, Radio X’s daytime playlist, as Virgin Radio’s Single Of The Week, and performed live on Zoe Ball On Sunday for ITV.
After a sold-out UK & European tour including London’s Alexandra Palace, “doubters take note, these Marsupials are officially massive”, confirmed the NME, The Wombats have gone on to lay waste to crowds across the globe, including the 50th anniversary Isle Of Wight Festival, Y Not?, Glasgow Summer Series (supporting Kings Of Leon), extensive dates through North America in support to Weezer and The Pixies, and huge headline arena dates in Australia.
With more announcement due imminently, and with no signs of slowing down, 2018 continues to be a phenomenal, groundbreaking year for The Wombats.
