In addition to the tour, The Wombats are also confirmed for a flurry of festival fun. They’ll headline Wakestock on July 9 and Lovebox on July 15, and will also play Rockness on June 12 and the V Festival in August (20 at Weston Park, Staffordshire and 21 at Chelmsford).

‘The Wombats proudly present… This Modern Glitch’, will cement the band’s status at the forefront of contemporary pop with a collection of glint-in-the-sunlight perfect tunes - better even than the dancefloor killers of their first chart onslaught. It features their two biggest airplay hits to date in the shape of ‘Tokyo (Vampires And Wolves)’ and ‘Jump Into The Fog’ as well as their next single ‘Anti-D’ which is set to be another hit when it’s released on Monday.
