Their upcoming single â€˜Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)â€™ received a glorious global premiere on Zane Loweâ€™s Radio 1 where it was named the Hottest Record In The World and was swiftly followed by the news that their October tour dates sold out almost immediately.
The single introduces the bandâ€™s eagerly anticipated second studio album (title to be confirmed) which is set to launch their unique style to a wider audience when itâ€™s released towards the end of the year.
Produced by Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Lostprophets), â€˜Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)â€™ adds an array of new sounds to the bandâ€™s famously immediate songwriting.
Following the release of their debut album â€˜The Wombats Proudly Presentâ€¦ A Guide To Love, Loss and Desperationâ€™, the bandâ€™s ascendency continued unabated.
The Wombats completed two huge sold-out UK tours which included triumphant shows at Brixton Academy, a unique one-off headline show at Londonâ€™s Royal Albert Hall and a massive homecoming show at the 10,000 capacity Liverpool Echo Arena.
They were nominated for Best UK Act at the MTV Europe Awards, and played a plethora of enormous festival appearances including OXEGEN and a co-headline set on the NME/Radio 1 stage at Reading and Leeds as well as storming sets at Glastonbury, T in the Park, Isle of Wight.
