New North American Tour Dates from Wild Beasts

via Pitchfork:
The falsetto-freaked British art-pop quartet Wild Beasts recently scored themselves a BNM for Two Dancers, their dramatic sophomore album. And in the coming months, the band will tour all over the place: the UK, mainland Europe, Australia, and then— finally— the U.S. and Canada. (It’s the band’s first North American tour.) And then back to London again. These guys will rack up some serious frequent flier miles this winter.

Wild Beasts: Best New Music at Pitchfork!

The Leeds quartet Wild Beasts strike it big this week earning the coveted Best New Music this morning at Pitchfork! Check out the full review here.

The bands first single “Hooting and Howling” is simply fantastic, and the video (which we showed you a few weeks back) for the track is equally “breathtaking”…

The band was “Band of the Week” last week at, with a really cool interview along with it!

Wild Beasts Holding Their Breath!

Recently, we cannot stop listening to Two Dancers, the second record from the Leeds quartet Wild Beasts, due out in the states on September 8 from Domino Records! Those falsetto vocals from guitarist/singer Hayden Thorpe meld so well the bands killer beats and head-nodding jams.

When I first checked out the video for the bands track “Hooting and Howling” , I was left a little uneasy…being underwater for a long time kind of freaks me out, and these boys are under there for a long time (instruments and all!). I simply love this track, but the video makes me feel like I’m shoveling coal in the bowels of the Titanic…after the whole iceberg thing.

Wild Beasts will be playing 3 shows in the U.S., all of which NYC on September 8-11, which happens to be the record release weekend…makes me want to scrape up my change and board a plane to JFK.
