Kendal collective hit the road

Kendal odd-pop wanderers Wild Beasts are readying themselves for a forthcoming tour, which will kick off on the 17th (Feb) .

The band will start the ten-date jaunt in Manchester , with support for the shows coming from surf-pop newcomers Napoleon IIIrd .

Wild Beasts released their debut ‘Limbo Panto’ last year, a collection of spiky yet fey pop songs that triggered marmite reactions in the music community (read a Clash Music live review of the band here).

Speaking to Clash Music recently, member Tom Fleming also confirmed their plans for their second album, adding "We’ll hopefully be finished just after Christmas. We want it out less than a year after ‘Limbo, Panto’ came out, but once you finish recording an album that’s only the start of it. And we’ve got to get it finished first.”

Wild Beasts will take their material on the road for their biggest UK tour yet.
