If energetic indie rock is what gets you moving, The Wombats are a must-see at Summerfest. The English band made their debut in Liverpool in 2003, giving fans a modern mix of melodic pop and dark rock. The trio released their third album, Glitterbug, in April 2015.
You can find a little bit of everything here - punk, 80's heavy synth pop, dreamy indie rock. With their latest album, "Greek Tragedy" is a song that you could find yourself listening to on repeat with its breezy vibe masking dark lyrics. Meanwhile, the animated track "Give Me A Try" has a bold chorus that builds and keeps you up. The Wombats make the type of music that begs to be heard live and heard loud.
Why You Should Go:
The Wombats put on the kind of live show that leaves you feeling out of breath - in a good way. It's a fast-paced dance party where it's practically a requirement that you jump around and sing along. They want your attention and they'll do whatever it takes to make sure they have it. Catch The Wombats for an explosive performance on Friday, July 8!
