‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ sees The Wombats continuing to assert themselves as one of the biggest and best guitar pop sensations of our time. 2015’s ‘Glitterbug’ LP saw a UK Top 5 Album, headline show at Alexandra Palace, and has currently received over 200 million digital streams. Whilst June 2017’s headline performance at Brixton Academy to celebrate the tenth anniversary of platinum-selling debut album ‘A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation’ sold-out in under 24 hours, not to mention two sold-out nights at the Sydney Opera House.

Having premiered as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1, ‘Lemon to A Knife Fight’ rides a push-pull rollercoaster of euphoria and desperation, delivered with the band’s signature animation and wit.Written from three corners of the globe – drummer Dan Haggis in London, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen nursing his new family in Oslo and frontman Murph in Los Angeles – Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life was created over long distance writing sessions, supplemented by intense two-week in-person sessions in Oslo. With the addition of producers Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man) and Catherine Marks (Wolf Alice), the album finds The Wombats pushing the boundaries of alt-pop innovation with a lush, ultramodern indie soundscape wrapped in Blade Runner synths, future grooves, celestial solos and space age melodies.

Debuting in the Top 5 on the UK Album Chart and Billboard 100, 2015’s ‘Glitterbug’ saw lead single “Greek Tragedy” receive over 70 million combined Spotify streams, surpassing even the band’s euphoric hit singles ‘Let’s Dance To Joy Division’, ‘Moving To New York’ and ‘Kill The Director’ that established them as chart-quashing champions of the noughties guitar pop explosion.

Rocketing between psychedelic euphoria and dark disfunction, ‘Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life’ captures The Wombats’ unique pairing of irrepressible hooks and tragi-comic lyricism with a newfound maturity and moving emotional depth. Together, the Liverpool-formed trio have created a record that’s still instantly sing-along but demands to be taken seriously.
