If it feels like The Wombats were only here yesterday that’s because the last time they were in Australia was only a few months ago for the Groovin The Moo festival. The English indie rockers, famous for hits such as ‘Lets Dance Like Joy Division’ and ‘Tokyo’ was forced to withdraw from the Bunbury, WA date of that tour due to commitments in the UK with BBC Radio 1. But Western Australians can rejoice because The Wombats have not forgotten and have added a date in Perth as part of their upcoming tour.
Also coming on tour around the country will be Faker, who recently had a scuffle with a venue in Tasmania, and 20 year old singer/songwriter Owl Eyes who is about to embark on a national tour to support her new EP.
