Liverpool's finest punks, The Wombats
are releasing some new tracks, following the success of their deliciously electronic LP The Wombats proudly present... This Modern Glitch
. After a frenetic set at Webster Hall (during CMJ week, with our buddies The Postelles) their tour continues to circle North America, but not without a few goodies to keep hungry interweb ears satiated, wherever you happen to live. Take a (first!) bite out of the latest B-side, "Wonderful Distraction", the track attached to recent single "Anti-D" premiering right here and now. Get distracted (wonderfully we might add).
This Modern Glitch
was recorded in LA with production by Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party) and Eric Valentine (Queens Of The Stone Age, Lostprophets). Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, R.E.M.) and Butch Walker (Fall Out Boy, The Donnas, Weezer) provided auxillary support, so yeah, one hell of a production team. Catch the band playing their hook-heavy pop-punk in a city near you.
