The Wombats are an English indie rock band from Liverpool, consisting of frontman Matthew Murphy, multi-instrumentalist Tord Øverland Knudsen and drummer Dan Haggis.
Formed in 2003, the band released their debut album, ‘A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation’, in 2007, which was followed by ‘This Modern Glitch’, in 2011, which hit #3 in the UK Albums Chart. The band released their last album,'Glitterbug', in 2015, which reached #5 in the chart
The Wombats played Glasgow, Liverpool and London in June 2017, in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of ’A Guide To Love, Loss and Desperation’. They also headed to Australia in May, with three headline shows amongst their Groovin the Moo performances.
The Wombats returned with a brand new record, 'Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life', in February 2018, which they toured across the UK and North America.

The Wombats clearly aren’t concerned with being the world’s most prolific band. Since their inception in 2003, they’ve released only four full-length records, clocking in at an average of about one every three-and-a-half years. Their latest is ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’, and it offers up an explanation for why Wombats albums are as scarce as their marsupial namesakes.
