Love Fame Tragedy is the debut solo project of Matthew ‘Murph’ Murphy, frontman of The Wombats. Love Fame Tragedy’s first two EPs I Don’t Want To Play The Victim, But I’m Really Good At It (September 2019) and Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void (March 2020) have garnered widespread support from the likes of triple j, Zane Lowe, Annie Mac, NME, The Times, CLASH, Metro, Jack Saunders, Radio X and more, racking up over 13 million global streams in the process.  

Love Fame Tragedy is Murph at his most personal and creatively receptive, the latest album is a gloriously uninhibited collection of synth-pop confessionals where hedonism, responsibility, anxiety and the fragility of love all collide. Recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sydney, Wherever I Go, I Want To Leave, sees Murph combine songs from his previous two EPs with seven new offerings.
