Liverpool's The Wombats return with their highly anticipated sophomore album, The Wombats proudly present 'This Modern Glitch', will be released April 26, 2011 through Bright Antenna/ILG/Warners.
Set to conquer the States, the band delivers 10 tracks that retain the immediacy and hook-filled sensibility of their stunning UK platinum-selling debut, 2007's The Wombats proudly present … Guide To Love, Loss And Desperation, while introducing aggressive dance elements and a heavier, wryer lyrical bent to their infectious alt-pop.

Furthermore, The Wombats' album art for This Modern Glitch was created by legendary surrealist artist Storm Thorgerson, known for his iconic Pink Floyd album covers.
Recorded at NRG Recording Studios in Los Angeles, This Modern Glitch was produced with Rich Costey (Muse, Franz Ferdinand, Bloc Party) and Eric Valentine (Queens of the Stone Age, Lostprophets), with additional production prowess contributed by super-producers Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, R.E.M.) and Butch Walker (Fall Out Boy, The Donnas, Weezer).
Following the release of their debut album, The Wombats proudly present… A Guide To Love, Loss and Desperation, the band's ascendency continued unabated. The album produced a string of smash dancefloor singles - "Kill The Director," "Let's Dance To Joy Division" and "Backfire At The Disco" - and propelled the band to become Liverpool's biggest musical export in well over a decade.
In addition, the trio is offering "The Wombatizer," which can be used to "hijack" any website and hunt for Wombats-related competitions and prizes. You can find out how to use the site as well what some of these prizes are -- from a trip to see the band live in Barcelona to T-shirts and CD giveaways to tickets to their album launch party in London.
