The 'Let's Dance to Joy Division' group's frontman Matthew 'Murph' Murphy has revealed that although he's busy promoting his side project Love Fame Tragedy's debut album, 'Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave', the Liverpool rockers have "20 songs" in consideration for their follow-up to 2018's 'Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life'.

The 35-year-old musician also revealed he's hoping to be able to hit the road for more Love Fame Tragedy shows.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Murph said: "We are deep in the process of album five.

"We have another 20 songs to get through already so I will keep going with that.

"Then hopefully by the end of the year I will start touring with Love Fame Tragedy and then yeah, it's going to be a busy few years."

Murph previously vowed that The Wombats - completed by Tord Overland Knudsen and Dan Haggis - are here to stay.

He said: "I said to them that [The Wombats] have such a great opportunity here to be a band that gets to six, seven, eight albums.

"That's an opportunity that doesn't really come along for a lot of people, so I definitely have to make sure we do justice to all the opportunities that we've been given.

"That's one of the main reasons why the Wombats aren't gonna go anywhere. But I still wanna try and get something else up and running as well."

'Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave' is out now.
