British indie rock trio the Wombats make driving guitar post-punk and electronic-influenced pop. Formed in Liverpool in 2003 while the members were all attending the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, the Wombats feature vocalist/guitarist Matthew Murphy, drummer Dan Haggis, and Norwegian-born bassist Tord Øverland-Knudsen. In 2006, the Wombats released their debut single, the Japan-only "Girls, Boys and Marsupials." Several singles followed before the release of the band's 2007 debut album, A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation. A year later, the band released the Wombats EP on Bright Antenna. In 2011, the Wombats released their sophomore album, This Modern Glitch, featuring production from such modern rock stalwarts as Eric Valentine, Butch Walker, and Jacknife Lee. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
