Matthew “Murph” Murphy – guitarist and lead singer of indie pop trio The Wombats – has announced his debut solo project Love Fame Tragedy. The project’s first EP, titled I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It and recorded between London and LA and featuring a raft of musical collaborators, is out September 13 via Good Soldier Songs / AWAL Recordings . Debut single ‘My Cheating Heart’ debuted on BBC Radio 1 as Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” and is available to stream now on all DSPs.

Watch the video featuring model and singer Maddi Jean Waterhouse (who also lends vocals to the track) below.

Undeniably infectious and built around a distorted guitar riff, ‘My Cheating Heart’ delves into the temptations of hedonistic excess. Producer Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’n’Bone Man) adds a warped, synthetic edge to Murph’s irrepressible songwriting talent, creating an arena-ready head-nodder that sets the tone for the forthcoming debut solo EP.

Named after a seminal Pablo Picasso exhibition at the Tate Modern, I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It sees Murph joined by a variety of friends and collaborators for the EP, including Pixies’ Joey Santiago, Gus Unger-Hamilton of Alt-J, model and singer Maddi Jean Waterhouse, and former Soundgarden and Pearl Jamdrummer Matt Chamberlain.

Following select shows in the UK and Europe, Love Fame Tragedy will take to the stage in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco in September – routing can be found below and tickets will be on sale this Friday, June 14 an 10am local time.
