THE FRONTMAN with The Wombats is striking out with his other band on a tour calling at the Brudenell Social Club in Leeds on February 27.

Matthew “Murph” Murphy and his solo project Love Fame Tragedy will be performing songs from his recent EP Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void, including latest single Riding A Way.

Riding A Wave is described as an endearingly honest assessment of the emotional ride of being in a relationship.

Never one to shy away from emotional vulnerability, Murph’s candid lyrics are said to intertwine with slick indie hooks and an earworm of a chorus.

Murph said: "“The lyrics are definitely the most personal I’ve ever written. It was recorded in London and took on several shapes before we landed on one that stuck."

Love Fame Tragedy debuted at Reading Festival last summer then played headline shows in the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA.

Named after a seminal Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Tate Modern, ​Love Fame Tragedy’s first EP I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It, came out last September, featuring Pixies’ Joey Santiago, alt-J’s Gus Unger-Hamilton, Matt Chamberlain of Soundgarden, Lauren Aquilina & Maddi-Jean Waterhouse.

Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void sees Murph bring in Bastille’s Dan Smith, as well as Eleanor Fletcher of Crystal Fighters, alongside Maddi-Jean Waterhouse for part two of his collaborative solo project.
