BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE finds The Wombats pushing the boundaries of indie pop with lush synths, anthemic choruses and their signature wit belied by a newfound emotional depth.

BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE WILL RUIN YOUR LIFE follows The Wombats’ 2015 LP Glitterbug, which garnered critical acclaim and debuted in the Top 5 on the UK Album chart and Billboard 100. Single “Give Me A Try”reached Top 20 at Alternative Radio, spent four weeks in a row at #1 on Alt Nation and, along with single “Greek Tragedy,” has over 70 million combined Spotify streams.
