Wild Beasts have announced their new album “Boy King”, which is set for release on 5 August 2016 with its first single ‘Get My Bang’ out today.

The video for ‘Get My Bang’ , which you can watch above, was shot in Belgrade and directed by Olivier Groulx (Arcade Fire, alt-J, Scott Walker). Not to forget this sweet new electronic beat underneath.

Wild Beasts will also play  a run of UK and European live dates in autumn 2016, including London’s Roundhouse on Tuesday 4 October. The dates follow summer festival appearances including a headline slot at Green Man Festival in August, a set at Electric Picnic, and two short residencies in Leeds and Brighton in July before then.

“Boy King” will released on 5 August 2016 on Domino.
