Possibly the funnest, cutest and most poptastic new band to come from the UK in the past few years, The Wombats release their debut album ‘…A Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation’.

Produced by the band with Stephen Harris (Kaiser Chiefs, Ben Kweller) and mixed by Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand), ‘…A Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation’ is an astoundingly accomplished debut; a collection of, irresistibly catchy songs, all shot through with infectious Scouse wit.

From the dancefloor-filling scuzz-pop of “Let’s Dance To Joy Division” to the off-kilter waltz of ‘Party in a Forest (Where’s Laura?)’, The WOMBATS’ lyrics deal in despair of the most danceable kind. Sometimes anchored firmly in melancholy (the lilting ‘Little Miss Pipedream’) and with others that have the immediacy and high-octane fun of a loveable indie romp (‘My First Wedding’).

The Wombats have built up an enormous live following in the UK and were the first unsigned act to sell out the Liverpool Academy. Their shows are known for the mayhem that ensues; with ebullient fans crashing the stage to dance and sing with their heroes.
