The Wombats are one of the most entertaining acts in the music industry today, a simple YouTube search verifies the claim. Fortunately for Charlotte, the Liverpool natives along with Coast Modern swing through the Queen City on June 18, stopping at Amos’ Southend on their North American tour.
Forged back in 2003 after meeting at the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, the Englishmen have gradually climbed up the indie rock charts. After beginning their careers in the European scene, with one record in 2006 released only in Japan, The Wombats debuted in the United States with the release of The Wombats EP. While an eventful summer in the UK followed, playing notable festivals such as Reading and Leeds, the band’s rise to prominence in the U.S. began.
The Wombats second studio album Modern Glitch followed in 2010 and set the Englishman up for further success with their third release, Glitterbug, in 2015. Their single “Greek Tradegy” garnered worldwide plaudits upon release and premiered as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record on BBC Radio 1. Soon after The Wombats performed the hit track on Late Night with Seth Meyers and braced for their North American tour.
The Wombats always plan to put on an exciting party, whether they’re performing at a festival or intimate venue like Amos’ Southend. It’s certain that The Wombats will motivate even the most timid of dancers.
