New Release: The Wombats

Liverpool's The Wombats return with their highly anticipated sophomore album, The Wombats proudly present ... This Modern Glitch, will be released TODAY. Set to conquer the States, the band delivers 10 tracks that retain the immediacy and hook-filled sensibility of their stunning UK platinum-selling debut, 2007's The Wombats proudly present ... Guide To Love, Loss And Desperation, while introducing aggressive dance elements and a heavier, wryer lyrical bent to their infectious alt-pop. The album art for This Modern Glitch (above) is by legendary surrealist artist Storm Thorgerson, known for his iconic Pink Floyd album covers.

The band has also released a brand new video for their compelling new single, "Anti-D," produced by Jacknife Lee (U2, R.E.M.); the track was chosen as BBC Radio 1's Zane Lowe "Single of the Week." The woozy psychedelia of the video was shot in one continuous take.
