The Wombats’ Matthew “Murph” Murphy’s Solo Project Love Fame Tragedy Releases New Single “Hardcore”

Love Fame Tragedy are back with passionate new track “Hardcore,” the second offering from their forthcoming EP Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void, out in February via Good Soldier Songs / AWAL. The Wombats‘ frontman Matthew “Murph” Murphy has once again enlisted the vocal talents of previous collaborator Maddi-Jean Waterhouse for his solo project’s sophomore EP, having worked with her on his debut I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It.

Hardcore,” which follows the Zane Lowe-backed “Body Parts,” is a dysfunctional ode to romantic longing. Maddi’s cool, aloof backing vocals provide an air of indifference against which Murph’s lustful lyrics, strutting riffs and emotion-fuelled chorus strain. The track comes accompanied by new live video – watch here.

“Hardcore came to me on a rainy day in Ealing, inspired by LCD Soundsystem and what it felt like to be a 20 something in Liverpool, going to indie clubs like Liquidation, getting into trouble etc,” Murph explains.

Having debuted the project live at Reading Festival this summer, along with headline shows in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA, LA-based Murph is bringing Love Fame Tragedy back home for an extensive UK tour in the spring.

Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void Tracklist:

1. Riding A Wave

2. Body Parts

3. Hardcore

4. Please Don’t Murder Me (Part 2)
