Wild Beasts are to release Bed Of Nails as the second single from their much acclaimed top twenty album, Smother. As well as being available digitally (RUG414D), Bed Of Nails will be available on exclusive postcard format featuring artwork from noted photographer Jason Evans whose work has graced the whole campaign. The 500 limited edition postcards will be signed by the band and will provide a download code to the track. These postcards will be available exclusively through Domino Mart and Wild Beasts' online store. Bed Of Nails will be backed with the track, Catherine Wheel.
Bed Of Nails is the most direct of the ten love songs on the album, pitched between obsession and celebration, driven by echoing voices and rolling drums.
Wild Beasts are performing at various festivals over the summer including Isle of Wight, Glastonbury (Park Stage headline), Field Day (main stage headline) and End of the Road. The four-piece will also headline a full UK tour in November. Full live dates are as follows:
