Today Wild Beasts release two previously unheard tracks entitled Soft Future and Blood Knowledge. Soft Future is the band’s first ever instrumental track, and is available to download as a special end-of-year giveaway. You can stream both tracks below
Over the past couple of months Wild Beasts and Parisian illustrator Mattis Dovier have been working together to create an interactive GIF-Novel to accompany Soft Future and Blood Knowledge. The project forms part of The Jameson Works which is all about supporting modern-day craftsmen and sharing the interesting stories behind their processes. Click HERE to experience the GIF-Novel.

Following shows in Asia and a support slot as very special guests to The National at The 02 in London, Wild Beasts headlined and curated a special end-of-year event at Canal Mills in Leeds entitled ‘Soft Future’, last week. The night featured appearances from East India Youth, Evian Christ (DJ), Nathan Fake & Fryars. This evening the Kendal four-piece are playing at XFM Winter Wonderland at the O2 Apollo Manchester alongside Ben Howard, George Ezra, Hozier, Jimi Goodwin and Circa Waves.
