The Wombats have announced the details of their new single.

The band release 'Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves)' through 14th Floor Records on September 27.

It will be followed by the full-length follow-up to 2007's The Wombats Proudly Present: A Guide to Love, Loss & Desperation, which is currently being finished at the NRG Recording Studios in Los Angeles.

Drummer Dan Haggis said: "We've approached this album slightly differently from the last.

"Whereas the first album was practically recorded live with a few overdubs, this time round we've had the time to really play with the sonics. Now we just can't wait to get out there and get sweaty."

Singer Matthew Murphy told XFM about the sound of the new single: "I don't think we consciously thought we'd make a synth-pop-whatever record. It just happened.

"There are a lot more keyboards and I didn't play as much guitar. It's quite an angsty, anxious song, wanting to run away from everything. A lot of our songs are escapist, I think."
