Wild Beasts are coming to Dublin

WILD Beasts have announced a series of gigs that will prove to be their last after their recently announced split.

The band is also unveiling a new EP as well as playing three farewell shows after revealing their plans recently to call it a day.

The ‘Punk Drunk & Trembling’ EP arrives on October 20 via Domino. All three songs on the EP were recorded during sessions for last year’s ‘Boy King’.

Meanwhile, the efinal Wild Beasts shows will take place from February 15-17 at Dublin’s Olympia, Manchester’s Albert Hall, and the London Eventim Apollo, respectively.

“The four of us have decided, for our own reasons and in our own ways, that it is now time to leave this orbit,” the band wrote in a statement.

“We’re caretakers to something precious and don’t want to have it diminish as we move forward in our lives.

“Wild Beasts are coming to an end,” they added. “Our hearts and minds have been devoted to the band since we were teenagers.

“We've created something quite of our own and built a body of work which we stand by as heartfelt and true.

“Thank you for your love and energy and for helping us make it what it is.

“We consider ourselves remarkably fortunate to have lived out this dream. But before we go, we'd like to celebrate with you.”

As part of the celebrations, the band will play their final ever live dates early next year.

You will be able to come along and wish them luck   when they take the stage on February 15 in Dublin’s Olympia.

Tickets are available for pre-sale via the band’s website and on general sale.

 Despite the break-up, the record producers Domino said they were nonetheless proud to announce the release of the ‘Punk Drunk & Trembling’ EP.

 An uncovered gem from the band’s Boy King recording sessions, its eponymous lead track is available digitally.

The EP also features the tracks ‘Maze’ and ‘Last Night All My Dreams’, which were previously only available on the deluxe vinyl version of ‘Boy King’.  

In the band’s statement released recently they explained: “The track listing for the ‘Punk Drunk & Trembling’ EP includes the tracks ‘Punk Drunk And Trembling’, ‘Maze’ and ‘Last Night All My Dreams’.

The ‘Punk Drunk And Trembling’ EP will be available digitally on October 30 and on limited 10” via Dom Mart on November 17.”
