The Wombats Unveil New Track “Ready For The High”

Following the announcement of their headline North American tour in January 2022, indie heroes The Wombats today unveil “Ready For The High,: the latest offering from their forthcoming album Fix Yourself, Not The World out January 7 (AWAL). A sultry buzz rock note-to-self to accept the good times now they’re here, the track comes accompanied by a video shot while the band were together in the UK earlier this month. The clip captures the raw live energy they recently brought to the main stages of Reading and Leeds Festival and Neighbourhood Weekender. About the track, frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy comments: ‘’Ready for the High’ is a 90’s inspired track that I was excited to toss a load of trumpets into. The song is about being engulfed in a bad place, but rather than accepting this as immutable, acknowledging that it is only temporary and that better times are closer than they (currently) appear.”

The Wombats will kick off their world-wide tour in support of Fix Yourself, Not The World with North American dates that kick off January 20 in Washington, DC and conclude in Los Angeles on February 25. Along the way the band will play shows in New York City, Chicago, Nashville and Seattle.

The Wombats have also revealed plans for a headline European tour in May which includes a stop at The O2, London for their biggest UK headline show to date.
