Wild Beasts Reveal New LP, Out 2/25 on Domino

Wild Beasts Reveal New LP "Present Tense" the album comes Out 2/25 on Domino Records. Wild Beasts start their world tour February 18th in Paris, France.

Domino will be releasing the fourth album from Wild Beasts, Present Tense, out February 25th, 2014. Present Tense, the followup to 2011’s  Smother, is a dramatically new album – taking cues from the most intense and effervescent of 1980s and 1990s electronic sound but rethinking and retooling these elements with exquisite detail for the 21st century.

Longer in creation than any of its predecessors, Hayden Thorpe (vocals, guitar, bass, keys), Tom Fleming (vocals, guitar, bass, keys), Chris Talbot (drums) and Ben Little (guitar, keys) took almost a full year away from touring to conceive and construct the eleven tracks of Present Tense. Written in London and recorded at Konk Studios in London and at The Distillery in Bath, the band worked in close collaboration with co-producers Lexxx and Brian Eno protégé Leo Abrahams to create a record of astounding intricacy, coherence and emotional resonance.

Considered to be one of contemporary Britain’s most innovative and vital bands, Present Tense sees the group’s ever-restless collective muse lead them to  embracing new production techniques and songwriting forms while retaining their individual idiosyncrasies, which usually creates an interesting project.
