Wild Beasts releasing ‘Present Tense’ in February, playing NYC and LA in March (dates, stream first single)

by Bill Pearis

Wild Beasts

UK quartet Wild Beasts are back with their fourth album, Present Tense, which will be out February 25 via Domino. It’s been nearly three years since 2011’s Smother and the group have had a bit of a rethink for this new one, going in a much synthier direction than we’ve heard from them before. Made with Brian Eno protege Leo Abrahams, their songs remain sultry and provocative, though, with the delicate interplay of frontmen Hayden Thorpe and Tom Fleming intact. You can watch the striking video for first single and lead track “Wanderlust” below.

While no full North American tour has been announced, Wild Beasts will be over in early March for shows in NYC and LA. They play Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on March 4. Tickets for that show go on AmEx presale today (1/8) at noon and will be available to the general public beginning Friday (1/10) at noon.

Shortly after those American shows, Wild Beast will launch a European tour and all dates are listed, along with the Wanderlust video, album artwork and track list, below.
