Wombats front man Matthew Murphy who is on the publicity trail for his band’s new album The Modern Glitch. As the band prepare to hit the Groove In The Moo Festival later this month, he’s taken s tried and tested band publicity path by telling the UK tabloid The Sun about his ‘drug hell. It’s actually not that interesting – the poor dear was merely on anti-depressants which made him put on weight and dried up his creativity which often happens when people take such medication.
He says “I first started taking medication before our first single came out. Then, once we were touring, I was taking quite high dosages and they just kept going up and up.” He reveals he wanted to wean himself off the medication because it made him stack on the fat. “I started putting on a lot of weight. That was the main reason I wanted to come off them. I hated going on stage and feeling fat.”
