Captivating Liverpool trio The Wombats have unveiled the latest single from their forthcoming fourth studio album, BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE,out February 9, 2018 via Kobalt Music Recordings.

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE follows The Wombats’ 2015 LP Glitterbug, which garnered critical acclaim and debuted in the Top 5 on the UK Album chart and Billboard 100. Single “Give Me A Try” reached Top 20 at Alternative Radio, spent four weeks in a row at #1 on Alt Nation and, along with single “Greek Tragedy,” has over 70 million combined Spotify streams. The band brought the singles – and their unforgettable live energy – to performances on CBS This Morning, Late Night With Seth Meyers and more. The band’s magnetic live shows led a fully sold-out North American tour, as well as unmissable festival performances at Austin City Limits, Outside Lands, Firefly, Reading and Leeds and 

Written from three corners of the globe – drummer Dan Haggis in London, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen nursing his new family in Oslo and 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. Produced by 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, irrepressible hooks and tragi-comic lyricism belied by a newfound maturity and moving emotional depth.
