A message from The Wombats:  “Hey Australia, so we’re playing Groovin’ the Moo this year and we thought whilst we were over it would be rude not to do some sideshows as we’re celebrating 10 years since the release of our 1st album! Our 1st baby is 10, we can’t believe how much he’s grown. We look forward to having a few massive birthday parties for the little blighter. Hope you can make it! – PS New music coming this year!” The Wombats have an uncanny knack for writing incredibly catchy songs. A Guide To Love, Loss and Desperation, featuring indie-rock cult classic ‘Lets Dance to Joy Division’, is a witty collection of dance floor-filling indie pop gems that are loaded with savvy pop culture references, angsty coming-of-age observations and utterly infectious hooks. Selling over a million copies worldwide, the album went platinum in the UK and Gold in Australia, soared up the heart-seeker charts in the US, and was the triple j feature album of December 2007. It’s no secret Australia has always had a love affair with The Wombats; selling out and upgrading multiple shows across the country and delivering massively energetic festival sets at The Falls Music and Arts Festival, Groovin’ the Moo and Splendour in the Grass.

The last time the duo were in the country they played two sold-out shows in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as massive festival slots at Falls, Southbound and Field day, with many hailing the psychedelic folk act as ‘stand outs’ of the 2014 festival circuit. With the Sydney Morning Herald posing the question, “How do you know a hit? When everyone at the festival stops what they’re doing and sprints towards the music.” When their song ‘Stolen Dance’ hit the Valley stage in Byron, thousands of punters ran to join in the mass revelry, including the biggest line dance ever performed! It was a magic moment and one of the highlights of the festival. After two years of solid touring including playing some of the worlds biggest festivals the German duo emerged late last year with ‘Cocoon’, signaling to their fans the arrival of a new album. The single has just achieved Gold-status in Australia, while on Spotify the track quickly amassed over 19 million plays and counting. The video has stirred up 4 million-plus YouTube/VEVO views with its gentle and seamless fusion of electronic vibes and folky singer-songwriter flourishes. Blossom (Neon Records/Universal Music Australia) will be available in stores and at all digital retailers on Friday March 17, 2017. The online pre-order is live HERE and immediately enables instant downloads of the lead single ‘Cocoon’ and new track ‘Doing Good’. If the first three offerings are anything to go by, Blossom promises to be one of this year’s most hotly anticipated releases!
