The Wombats return with new single

Renowned as one of Britain's most exciting live bands, The Wombats are poised to storm back to prominence with the release of the new single 'Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)' on 27th September via 14th Floor Records.

The single introduces the band's eagerly anticipated second studio album (title to be confirmed), which is set to launch their unique style to a wider audience when it's released towards the end of the year.

"We've approached this album slightly differently from the last," explains drummer Dan Haggis. "Whereas the first album was practically recorded live with a few overdubs, this time round we've had the time to really play with the sonics. Now we just can't wait to get out their and get sweaty."

The Wombats are currently putting the finishing touches to their upcoming second album in the NRG Recording Studios in Los Angeles. As well as Valentine, the Liverpool / Oslo trio have also collaborated on the project with super-producer Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, R.E.M.).
