  • The Wombats' Murph Has A New Side Project & It's Coming To Aus
    POSTED Jun 11 2019

    Murph

    The joke goes that The Wombats are here in Australia so often for music festivals that they may as well live here. Well, to shirk the running joke, the band's frontman Matt 'Murph' Murphy has gone and started a new side project and he's bringing THAT to Australia instead. So technically speaking, The Wombats haven't got plans to tour the country this year but Murph has personally, so I guess the joke's on you.

    Anyway, Murph's started a new project called Love Fame Tragedy and his debut single My Cheating Heart has landed today, along with news he'll be bringing the new project to some headline shows here this October.

    The song has the indie rock flair of The Wombats, but will enlist a bunch of his famous musical mates to lend a hand. These guests include Joey Santiago from The Pixies, Gus Unger-Hamilton from Alt-J and Soundgarden/Pearl Jam's former drummer Matt Chamberlain. This new single features singer/model Maddy Jean Waterhouse.

    It'll all be part of a new EP called I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It landing this September 13.

    And finally - if you wanna check Murph in this new capacity out, he's playing Yours & Owls Festival as well as a Sydney show on October 8th, Melbourne show on October 9th and Brisbane show on October 10th.
