The Wombats have announced details for a 2019 UK arena tour – including a show at Wembley.

The newly announced shows for the new year in Glasgow, Leeds, Newport, Bournemouth, Birmingham and London will follow this weekend’s main stage appearances at Reading & Leeds Festival- where the band have teased ‘special plans’ in store.

“Maybe we have special stuff planned for Reading & Leeds,” frontman Matt Murphy told NME. “I’d be spoiling something [to say], because I don’t know if it’s definitely happening so we’ll see.”

The band’s upcoming UK tour dates are below. Tickets to the newly announced January shows are on sale from 9am on Thursday August 30 and all are available here.

Speaking to NME earlier, Murphy revealed that he’s also been working with a new band.

“There were some songs left over from [The Wombats’ new album] that we didn’t use and I was like, ‘They’re really good, they should see the light of day somehow’,” he said. “But since then there’s been a load more and they’ve been parked, but we’ll see what happens.”

Murphy also revealed that The Wombats will be heading into the studio for their fifth album “early next year”.
