  • The WOMBATS @MCA (moved from Palais)

    With special guests: Circa Waves

    Liverpool indie three-piece The Wombats made their Splendour debut in 2008 with songs from their killer debut album ‘A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation’.

    They return in 2015 with their third album ‘Glitterbug’, a triple j feature album including the singles ‘Greek Tragedy’ and lead track ‘Your Body Is A Weapon’. Previous album ‘This Modern Glitch’ with its hit singles ‘Tokyo’ (Vampires and Wolves) and ‘Jump Into The Fog’ saw The Wombats build on the initial success of their debut album as it became their highest charting album in Australia, peaking at #2 on the ARIA album chart and achieving platinum sales.

    Hot on the heels of the release of their highly anticipated debut LP “Young Chasers”, which debuted at #7 on the British charts, the boys will bring a hit-after-hit setlist including ‘T-Shirt Weather’, triple j’s current spin ‘Fossils’ and festival favourites ‘So Long’, ‘Get Away’, ‘Stuck in My Teeth’ and ‘Young Chasers’. 2014 was a big year for Liverpool’s fastest-rising stars; one of the runaway successes at New York CMJ, the coveted opening slot on the NME Awards tour, performances in front of packed tents at Reading / Leeds and Latitude and a prestigious appearance on the 2nd stage at Glastonbury plus a euphoric sold-out UK tour in November confirmed them as THE most exciting guitar band in Britain right now.
