The Wombats Release Free Single, “Addicted To The Cure”

While final details on The Wombats’ highly anticipated sophomore album are still pending, the UK trio’s momentum towards the April 26th U.S. release date of This Modern Glitch on Bright Antenna/ILG continues with the free download of the infectiously energetic new track, “Addicted To The Cure.” The club-friendly track features frontman Murph presenting himself with a cigarette in his mouth, in a room strewn with used nicotine patches, asking “When did we get addicted to the cure?” When, indeed!

This Modern Glitch features production by Rich Costey (Muse, Interpol, Franz Ferdinand), Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, R.E.M.), and Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age). The collection includes both recent Top 20 UK hit “Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)” – with an accompanying video that has reached over 1.2 million plays – and the successful follow-up single, “Jump Into The Fog.”

The band is about to start an already-sold out UK tour next month, with word on a US tour to be released later in the spring.

The Wombats Release New Single

UK’s favorite rockers, The Wombats have been diligently hammering out their sophomore full-length under the tutelage of famed producer Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, All-American Rejects) for a couple years now.

Now the first single, “TOKYO (Vampires & Wolves)” is ready to be heard. Featuring an intensely dance-centric beat and flavorful synths, the song showcases the Wombats’ evolution musically. Check  out the music video below, in which the band engages in gruesome rock-star behavior, sugarcoated with drugs and booze.

Look for the Wombats’ new album early in 2011, with a tour announcement sure to follow.

A Very Merry MIXMAS!
