It's been a minute since we've heard from The Wombats, one of my own personal favorite emerging acts back in the day, like a biebgillion years ago. The punky Britsters have announced a new record early next year, which appears to take a decidedly electronic turn based on the first single. It's a jaunty number called "Tokyo (Vampires and Wolves)". Stream it after the jump.

Producer Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Good Charlotte, The All-American Rejects) helmed this track, which features a thumping bass and synth line reminiscent of today's most popular rock. Luckily, it's less Disney-curated and more band-that-had-an-awesome-record-already. So it's exciting to hear them making the radio sound their b*tch.



The band's sophomore album will also feature production from producers Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, R.E.M.), Butch Walker (Fall Out Boy, The Donnas, Weezer) and Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party), which is, um, quite a roster of fire power. Considering the raw talent of the band's songwriting, we're pysched to hear an entire album of beat-driven remix bait. Not to mention the potential for a band that actually deserves glory to finally capture some major attention stateside.

Stay tuned for more on these marsupials. -joe puglisi
