Liverpool trio play early-evening slot on 4Music stage

Wombats play new song at V Festival Chelmsford
The Wombats played an early-evening set at the V Festival in Chelmsford today (August 22), showcasing a new song destined for their forthcoming second album.

The Liverpool trio, playing on the 4Music stage, treated the crowd to new song 'Shock Goodbyes And P45s' and declared the show something of a full stop to their 2007 debut album, 'A Guide To Love, Loss & Desperation'.

"We played here in 2007. I guess that was the start of our album, and I guess this is the end of it," frontman Matthew Murphy said before playing 'Shock Goodbyes And P45s'. "So try and enjoy yourselves."

Later he geared up the crowd by asking them to "Give us a scream everyone!" before playing 'Patricia The Stripper'. "This one's about falling in love with a whore," he added.

Later Murphy messed up the intro to 'Moving To New York'. "I fucked it!" he admitted as the band re-started the song. "I was trying to be too rock'n'roll."

The band got back on course and ended their set with 'Backfire At The Disco', declaring that the festival show would be the last one they play in a good while.

The Wombats played:

'Party In A Forest (Where's Laura?)'
'Kill The Director'
'Patricia The Stripper'
'Here Comes The Anxiety'
'Shock Goodbyes And P45s'
'Let's Dance To Joy Division'
'Lost In The Post'
'My First Wedding'
'Moving To New York'
'Backfire At The Disco'
