Wild Beasts debut another ‘Boy King’ cut ‘Tough Guy’

The new full-length drops on August 5th.
Wild Beasts have debuted another track from their forthcoming album ‘Boy King’.

‘Tough Guy’ follows on from the previously unveiled ‘Get My Bang’, ‘Big Cat’ and ‘Celestial Creatures’ in showing off the impressive change the band have made under the production of John Congleton. A sleazier, more direct take on the Wild Beasts template, it makes their forthcoming full length – due on August 5th – one of the most anticipated of the year.

‘Boy King’ will be released on heavyweight 12” vinyl including album download card, with a deluxe edition including a bonus 7” of two bonus songs available via the Wild Beasts online store. The album will also be released on standard and deluxe CD formats, with the deluxe edition including a 12-page booklet, as well as deluxe digital download.
