English indie rockers, The Wombats have unveiled a new taste of their their fifth studio album, Fix Yourself, Not The World, with the release of their new single, Ready for the High. Bringing nostalgic 90's vibes to the track, the track conceptually looks towards better times and the hope of finding happiness, arriving alongside a monochromatic performance visual.


Speaking about the track, frontman Matthew Murphy says, "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 creation of If You Ever Leave, I’m Coming With You saw the trio undertake a new approach to their creative process, recording the record remotely from their respective homes over the past year. With Murphy based in Los Angeles, bassist Tord Øverland Knudsen in Oslo and drummer Dan Haggis in London, the trio recorded their individual parts before sending them off to the albums producers, Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers), Gabe Simon (Dua Lipa, Lana Del Rey), Paul Meaney (Twenty One Pilots, Nothing But Thieves) and Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag‘n’Bone Man).


“We’re so excited for people to hear this new album! We’ve explored new genres and pushed ourselves further than ever musically. It will always stand out for us in our memories from our other albums as we recorded it across three cities during lockdown, and we weren’t all in the same room at the same time!” says Haggis.



Kicking off in Perth on June 5 next year, The Wombats will be taking to Aussie stages in Hobart, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Canberra, before wrapping up their national tour in Brisbane on June 17. The seven date headline tour is a welcomed return to Aussie stages for the trio, with tickets on sale 9am, August 23.
