Wild Beasts are calling it a day

25 September 2017, 10:03 | Written by Laurence Day

Wild Beasts are calling it a day just over a year on from their fifth record.

Although they intend to call it a day pretty soon, with just a few shows left in the diary, Wild Beasts are planning to leave on a high note: "Before we go, we'd like to celebrate with you and we'll be in touch in the morning with further announcements."

The band explain their decision in a letter which you can read below:

Wild Beasts released their latest album Boy King last year. It was their fifth for Domino and second UK Top 10 following predecessor Present Tense. The Kendal-born four piece, comprising Hayden Thorpe, Ben Little, Chris Talbot, and Tom Fleming, released day album Limbo, Panto in 2008, with follow up LP Two Dancers arriving a year later, and third album Smother landing in 2011.

Wild Beasts will headline Bristol's Simple Things Festival in just a few weeks - and it'll be one of your last chances to catch them. Find out more.
