Inventive, sultry indie-pop outfit Wild Beasts return to play an intimate show in The Rescue Rooms.

Debut record ‘Limbo Pant’ was released on Domino Records and spawned hit ‘The Devil’s Crayon’, which has remained a favourite in the bands live set ever since. Sophomore album ‘Two Dancers’ brought them an incredible amount of critical acclaim with fantastic reviews from NME, Drowned in Sound, Pitchfork, The Observer and many, many more. After releasing the record they played sets at Primavera Sound and our very own Dot to Dot festival. New release ‘Smother’ hit the UK Album Charts at Number 17 and again garnered lashings of critical acclaim. It’s a much more aurally subtle record that it’s predecessors, but one that will live long in the memory.

It’s been a busy summer for the band what with headlining Field Day, The Park stage at Glastonbury and playing high-profile slots at End of the Road and Reading and Leeds.
