Wild Beasts have announced they are ‘coming to an end’ after five studio albums.
In a letter posted on social media today, the band hinted at farewell shows which will give them a chance to ‘celebrate’ with fans. “Wild Beasts are coming to an end,” the note begins.
“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.”
“The four of us have decided, for our own reasons and in our own ways, that it is now time to leave this orbit. We’re caretakers to something precious and don’t want to have it diminish as we move forward in our lives.”
What may now prove to be Wild Beasts’ final LP, Boy King, was released in August 2016.
