Update: The Wombats have just announced their new album Fix Yourself, Not The World for January 7th 2022.
Today The Wombats return with their brand new track Method To The Madness. The new song follows on from their 2018 critically acclaimed album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life and comes with a video directed by Aaron Brown (Arctic Monkeys, King Krule). Watch and listen below.
Method To The Madness was recorded remotely over the past year from Murph, Dan Haggis and Tord Overland Knudsen respective homes. Speaking of the track, frontman Murph, who has been busy with his solo project Love Fame Tragedy, explains:
‘Method To The Madness’ is about trying to find patterns within chaos and ultimately giving up, and letting go. Some of the lyrics are lifted from my own honeymoon experience – walking around European cities, being amongst tourists whilst simultaneously being one myself, and generally blagging it with last minute hotel bookings. Feeling excitement but still being fully aware that nothing much has changed
A typical The Womabts track, Method To The Madness is not only a teaser for more new music to come but also a nice warm up for the festival seasons. The band will play a second from top billings at Reading & Leeds Festival main stage and Neighbourhood Weekender. More dates will be announced shortly.
Method To The Madness is out now via AWAL.
