Love Fame Tragedy's second EP features collabs with Bastille and Crystal Fighters

The Wombats' frontman Matthew "Murph" Murphy has announced his second solo EP, due in February.

'Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void' follows on from his Love Fame Tragedy debut, 'I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It', and features collaborations with Bastille frontman Dan Smith, Crystal Fighters’ Eleanor Fletcher and previous collaborator Maddi-Jean Waterhouse.

“I had the idea of a song called ‘Body Parts’ a while back," he says of the lead single. "And I wanted to do something creepy and atmospheric, which I guess the verses kind of are. The chorus kind of came out of nowhere and added a much needed positive twist to the song. It feels great live and I think it’s the obvious choice to kick off EP2."

Murph will be taking the project on a UK tour in February and March, too, including a night at London's Heaven:

FEBRUARY
25 The Cluny, Newcastle upon Tyne
26 King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut, Glasgow
27 Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
29 Manchester Academy, Manchester

MARCH
2 The O2 Institute, Birmingham
3 Heaven, London
4 Thekla, Bristol
7 La Badaboum, Paris
