In 2011, The Wonder Stuff toured with The Levellers as part of their Levelling The Land anniversary tour which will culminate at London's Brixton Academy exactly 25 years to the day that the group originally formed. In between acoustic shows by Miles and Erica, the group also performed at a number of festivals and shows in the UK as well as performing a handful of dates in America supporting Jesus Jones.. At the end of the year, the group were due to perform two shows in Birmingham and London to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of their Never Loved Elvis album. Shortly before the shows were due to take place, guitarist Malcolm Treece left the group. His place for the shows was taken over by Jesus Jones' guitarist Jerry de Borg.

In 2012, the group returned with a series of cover versions of their favourite songs by artists and groups from the Midlands released exclusively on 7" vinyl alongside the download format.  Stevie Wyatt also joined the group as full-time guitarist.

The group release their seventh studio album, 'Oh No It's... The Wonder Stuff' in December 2012 prior to going on the road with long-time friends Pop Will Eat Itself and Jesus Jones.
