Spotlight on: Love Fame Tragedy

Love Fame Tragedy – the collaborative solo project of Matthew “Murph” Murphy, guitarist and lead singer of alt-pop phenomenon’s The Wombats, alongside such alt-rock luminaries as Pixies guitarist Joey Santiago and Alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton – is set to play a string of headline live dates early next month. The shows will mark the first time Murph will play tracks from his new second album, ‘Life Is A Killer', live.

Love Fame Tragedy began releasing a series of singles and EP’s, when their debut album ‘Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave’ dropped in 2020. The album achieved critical and commercial success with 30 plus million streams and has had widespread support from the likes of NME, CLASH and more.

The second Love Fame Tragedy record became public in March 2024. ‘Life is a Killer’ is a frank and open one, with the songs documenting the personal issues and difficult times Murph had experienced. The album embraces the volatility of life and love.

As the now sober songwriter navigates his way through balancing life as a new father of two and touring the world with The Wombats, he explores the mental struggles of managing family life amid self-destructive excess. Written in between London and LA, Murph enlisted the help of producers Jacknife Lee (U2, The Killers) and Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag N Bone Man, The Wombats) to push his sonic boundaries further than ever, with new sounds. Finished off with Wombats long-time producer Mark Crew, the end product is an infectious yet deep electropop, future rock, EDM and alt-disco offering.
