Wild Beasts @ Highline Ballroom

Wild Beasts

Wild Beasts headlined Highline Ballroom on Aug 11th with Lone Wolf and The Kissaway Trail. Wild Beasts' record, Two Dancers is currently up for the Mercury Prize (the UK's album of the year), the results of which will be announced on September 7th. The show was one of a few US dates for the crew, and now the band is already back in their native UK preparing for a string of festival dates including the Reading/Leeds Festivals next weekend.

Lone Wolf, also from the UK, plays the Green Man Festival this weekend with Wild Beasts before heading out on a short UK tour with Phil Selway (of Radiohead). The Radiohead drummer is preparing to welcome a solo album of his own entitled Familial, due in the US on Nonesuch on Aug 31. Featuring appearances from Glenn Kotche (Wilco), Pat Sansone, Sebastian Steinberg (ex-Soul coughing), and more, the LP is currently up for preorder, and you can stream a few songs from it below.
