Fusing the musical prowess of Matthew Murphy, Dan Haggis and Tord Overland-Knudsen, The Wombats are an established and forward-thinking Indie Rock phenomenon. From first crossing paths while studying at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, this musically gifted trio with a well-crafted penchant for the glorious leftfield has gone on to wow the planet!
The release of ‘This Modern Glitch’ in April 2011 has seen the band take their career to the next level. The album instantly received widespread critical acclaim and was hailed as ‘Album of the Week’ on both Triple J and RADAR Radio.
It was catapulted all the way to the number two position on the ARIA charts, featuring hits such as “Techno Fan”, “Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)”, “Jump Into the Fog” and “1996”.
After touring Australia last year to sold-out crowds, The Wombats are back for a spate of live shows at Future Music Festival as well as intimate DJ shows.
Catch them on The Espy decks, Sunday March 11 (Labour Day eve). Tickets on sale now through www.espy.com.au and all Oztix outlets.
