Following the announcement of their headline European tour in May 2022 and extra dates at Glasgow’s Barrowlands, indie heroes The Wombats have shared their latest offering. Giving us another look at their forthcoming album Fix Yourself, Not The World and with everyone clearly excited for it, (demonstrated by additional tour dates being added) new single Ready For The High is a welcome treat.

If this wasn’t enough, whilst together in the UK The Wombats shot a live performance of the single, showing off the energy given of performing at Reading and Leeds festival as well as Neighbourhood Weekender. Talking about this new release frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy shared:

“’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.”

Watch the video for Ready For The High below:

Ready For The High once again shows off that truly inconic Wombats sound that has captured fans lovingly for years, while also showing us another spin on a new era of music. With less than three months to go until we get to hear Fix Yourself, Not The World we’re truly being kept on our toes with what to expect. It’s an album we’re already excited to listen to front to back and see how this masterpiece has all come together despite the tricky location logistics.
