Formed in 2003 while attending the Liverpool School of Performing Arts, The Wombats are a British indie-rock band whose sound makes room for pop melodies and dance tempos. Having initially released two albums only available in Japan, the band's UK debut album The Wombats Proudly Present: A Guide to Love, Loss and Desperation (2008) reached Number 11, propelled by the platinum-certified breakthrough hit "Let's Dance to Joy Division." Follow-up singles "Moving to New York" and "Backfire at the Disco" both became Top 40 hits in the UK. The Wombats' second album, This Modern Glitch, reached Number 3 on the UK charts in 2013, with Glitterbug climbing to Number 5 in 2015. Both Glitterbug and its 2018 follow-up, Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life, were certified silver in the UK, and The Wombats continued their successful run with 2022's Fix Yourself, Not The World, which became the band's first release to reach Number 1 on the UK's Official Albums Chart.
