Don’t you just love it when one of your favourite bands announces a string of new shows right out of the blue? That’s exactly what The Wombats did today! Sporting some beautiful artwork, which looks like it’s been influenced by the band’s trips to the States, Murph, Dan & Tord posted news of 6 very exciting “warm-up” dates taking in some of our favourite venues from both sides of the Atlantic. Here they are…
15th – London – Old Blue Last
16th – Liverpool – The Magnet
19th – Brooklyn – Rough Trade
20th – New York – Mercury Lounge
22nd – San Francisco – Popscene at The Rickshaw
23rd – Los Angeles – Bootleg
Not only are these going to be the first gig the lads have played in ages, they are also going to be the first time they’ve played venues like these in even longer. Along with the glamorous locales, it great to see the lads have made sure they’re keeping real by including a show in their home town of Liverpool. Respect!
