Wild Beasts are set to share one final release before their imminent split, and have shared another track from it.
’Last Night All My Dreams Came True’, a live studio album of tracks spanning their discography, recorded live at the RAK Studios, was first previewed by ‘The Devil’s Palace’, a mash-up of ‘The Devil’s Crayon’ from the band’s 2008 debut ‘Limbo, Panto’ and ‘Palace’ from 2014’s ‘Present Tense’. The band have now shared a video for ‘Two Dancers’ track ‘All The King’s Men’, set to appear on the new release.
The band shared a new EP called ‘Punk Drunk And Trembling’ - formed of offcuts from last year’s ‘Boy King’ LP - last October, and are now set to contribute to their label Domino’s ongoing Domino Documents series.
The new release will come out on 16th February, the day before their final show at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.
“It’s us as tight and slick as we ever have been,” says Tom Fleming of the new record in a press release.
“And it’s also us giving the fewest fucks we’ve ever given. There’s a sense of celebration and destructiveness combined, a sense that the fetters are off. Not that they were ever on … but that sense of limited time before you shuffle off is very much a motivator.”
“We get to leave our desk by our own accord,” Hayden Thorpe says of the band’s split, with no hiatus in sight. “And that makes us very lucky. Whoever gets to do that?”
