THE WOMBATS Confirm Major UK Tour from September 2011

Confirm major UK tour to commence in September

“For me, there has been one record, of late, that’s been so ecstatically uplifting and bursting with classic modern pop tunes that it’s elevated me out of any slump, funk or sluggishness I might have been feeling at the time. Believe it or not, it’s the new Wombats album. Maybe Murph is the new Prozac after all.” – NME

“A modern pop primer bursting with potential hits… reminds you just how thrilling and sharp-edged narrative pop can be.” – Sunday Times Culture

“A joyous, infectious pop album full of uplifting melodies” – The Fly
