The Wombats kick off the most exciting phase of their constantly evolving success story with the release of their fifth studio album Fix Yourself, Not The World, which was released on 7th January via AWAL. Alongside this, the indie heroes have revealed plans for a six date headline UK arena tour in April 2022, playing massive nights in Leeds, Glasgow, and Cardiff as well as their biggest ever headline show at The O2, London on 15th April. This is followed with a headline tour of more intimate venues later in the year in October.

Recording remotely over the past year from their respective homes, the band have been working hard to produce some of the most captivating, inventive and forward-thinking music of their career to date. With front man Matthew ‘Murph’ Murphy in Los Angeles, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen in Oslo and drummer Dan Haggis in London, they discussed each day’s plan via Zoom, then recorded separately, sending individual files to producers Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers), Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey), Paul Meaney (Twenty One Pilots, Nothing But Thieves), Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man) and Mike Crossey (The 1975, The War on Drugs, Yungblud) to mix into the finished tracks. “It was pure madness, to be honest,” explains Murph.

“We’re so excited for people to hear this new album! We’ve explored new genres and pushed ourselves further than ever musically. It will always stand out for us in our memories from our other albums as we recorded it across three cities during lockdown, and we weren’t all in the same room at the same time!” says Dan Haggis.

With summer shows which included second from top billings at Reading & Leeds Festival main stage and Neighbourhood Weekender, plus their biggest ever UK headline tour set for 2022, this is only the start of what’s to come as fans new and old gear up for the next exciting chapter from one of Britain’s most adored bands.
