Wild Beasts to split

Wild Beasts have announced they are to split. The Domino-signed band from the Lake District announced on social media that it is “time to leave this orbit”

The band have been critical favourites for the past decade and were Mercury-nominated for 2009’s Two Dancers. The album has sold 54,168 according to Official Charts Company data.

The previous two albums - Boy King (2016) and Present Tense (2014) - both went Top 10.

The band said in a statement: “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.”

Wild Beasts hinted at farewell performances in the statement.
