Wild Beasts announce new album 'Boy King'
Wild Beasts have announced their new album Boy King, which, the band says, explores sex and death.
Boy King has the band, as Tom Fleming puts it, "back to being pissed off". The quartet’s album is set for release on 5 August with first single ‘Get My Bang’ released today. The video for ‘Get My Bang’ was shot in Belgrade and features some Justin Timberlake-meets-Trent Reznor choreography courtesy of Hayden Thorpe.
Wild Beasts support the release with a run of UK and European live dates including London’s Roundhouse on Tuesday 4 October. The dates follow summer festival appearances including a headline slot at Green Man Festival in August, with those dates preceded by two short residencies in Leeds and Brighton in July.
