‘This Modern Glitch’ saw The Wombats build on the initial success of their debut album as it became their highest charting album and also became their biggest international album to date – most notably in Australia where it peaked at #2 as it reached Platinum status.

In addition, ‘This Modern Glitch’ also launched some of their most popular singles so far such as ‘Techno Fan’, ‘Tokyo (Vampires and Wolves)’, ‘Jump Into The Fog’ (a Top 10 hit on Billboard’s Alternative Songs charts) and ‘Anti-D’. They subsequently headlined Lovebox and Wakestock, and were also a highlight of numerous other festivals including Glastonbury, V, Radio 1’s Big Weekend and Rockness, as well as a packed tent at Coachella and an arena tour of Australia.

The first taster of the band’s new album came when the track ‘Your Body Is A Weapon’ was released as a free download for their ever devoted fanbase. Premiered by Zane Lowe at Radio 1 and later included in his 100 Hottest Records of the Year, the track demonstrated their continuing popularity with over 2 million plays split between YouTube and SoundCloud.

In addition to continuing work on their third album, 2014 has also seen The Wombats tour extensively with numerous festival dates in Australia and mainland Europe including Rock Werchter, Hurricane Festival and Field Day.
