Wombats and Cons. Feisty Wombats??

Well, it's finally going to happen. They've already toured the US twice in support of the record they released overseas last year, but the Wombats are finally coming around for that third tour to promote - yes - the US release of said album. About fucking time!

What's the kicker? It appears their (traditionally-metal-oriented) US label, Roadrunner Records, whose roster includes artists like Opeth, Slipknot, and 3 Inches of Blood, also includes Biffy Clyro, Dresden Dolls, and...Nickelback (??). The Wombats should feel right at home. Here's the proof.

May success in the US encourage re-orders of stuffed wombats and size small hot pants.

On a side note, I'd like to thank my dear friend Rocko for leading me to this bizarre collaboration:

Constantines and Feist - Islands in the Stream (Stream...ah...sans islands.)

What's it missing? A badly-needed ODB cameo.
