Wild Beasts have just completed a UK and European tour in support of Present Tense, including a sold out, unforgettable show at London’s Brixton Academy, the band’s biggest London headline show to date. The band will return to the UK to perform at The Great Escape (9th May, headline show at The Dome), End Of The Road (headline show on Sunday 31st August) and Bestival, with further dates to be announced. Full live dates are below.

Alongside its breathtaking leap in production (Wild Beasts worked in close collaboration with co-producers Lexxx and Brian Eno protégé Leo Abrahams), Present Tense finds the band at the peak of their considerable songwriting powers – each one of the album’s eleven tracks illuminating the precious, tender, sad and funny moments of modern life in their trademark plain-spoken poetics. The album is available to buy now from Dom Mart and iTunes.
