Matthew 'Murph' Murphy's side project Love Fame Tragedy have announced new EP 'Live From SIR, Hollywood'.

Following the release of their debut EP, 'I Don't Want To Play The Victim, But I'm Really Good At It', last year, and recent follow-up 'Five Songs To Briefly Fill The Void', The Wombats frontman has released part 1 of the live collection, which was recorded at the legendary SIR Studios in Hollywood, previously frequented by the likes of Sting, Joan Jett and Nile Rodgers.

The full EP will follow on April 17, and includes 'Body Parts', 'Pills', and 'Multiply', the latter of which was co-written with Bastille's Dan Smith.

Despite starting Love Fame Tragedy, Murph has insisted The Wombats are here to stay.

The 'Let's Dance To Joy Division' hitmaker recently reassured fans that the indie the band - which is also comprised of bassist Tord Overland Knudsen and drummer Dan Haggis - still have lots of plans for new music.

Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: "I said to them that [The Wombats] have such a great opportunity here to be a band that gets to six, seven, eight albums.

"That's an opportunity that doesn't really come along for a lot of people, so I definitely have to make sure we do justice to all the opportunities that we've been given.

"That's one of the main reasons why The Wombats aren't gonna go anywhere. But I still wanna try and get something else up and running as well."

The musician collaborated with the likes of Pixies' Joey Santiago, Gus Unger-Hamilton from alt-J and Soundgarden's Matt Chamberlain on the first EP, and still has more people to try and get on board.

He teased: "I need to get preparing for that. I've got a few people in mind, but I don't know if I might be stretching myself a bit. But they can only tell me to f**k off, and that's fine!"

The track-listing for 'Live From SIR Hollywood' is:

1. 'Multiply'
2. 'Body Parts'
3. 'Pills'
4. 'My Cheating Heart'
5. 'Please Don't Murder Me'
6. 'Riding A Wave'
