The Wombats have just announced their fifth studio album Fix Yourself, Not The World, will be released 7th January 2022 via AWAL. Coinciding with the album announcement, the indie veterans also share the brand new single If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You. Listen below.
Speaking of the new single, frontman Murph said:
I noticed that 2020 and 2021 put some serious strain on interpersonal relationships, it felt like people around me were really struggling. For me, ‘If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You’ taps into all of that and asks the question… is it the circumstances putting undue stress on people? Or have the circumstances shed light on people’s incompatibility with one another?
The album, which also includes recent single, Method to the Madness, was recorded remotely from the band member’s respective homes over the past year. Speaking of the new songs, the band’s drummer Dan Haggis commented:
We’re so excited for people to hear this new album! We’ve explored new genres and pushed ourselves further than ever musically. It will always stand out for us in our memories from our other albums as we recorded it across three cities during lockdown, and we weren’t all in the same room at the same time!
On top of all this, the trio have also announced a six date headline UK arena tour in April 2022, stopping Leeds, Glasgow, Cardiff, Liverpool and Scarborough, as well as their biggest ever headline show at The O2, London on 15th April. Tickets will go on sale from 9am BST on 20th August*. This summer, the band will be second from top billings at Reading & Leeds Festival main stage and Neighbourhood Weekender.
