Wild Beasts are to release Reach a Bit Further as the next single from their widely acclaimed top twenty album, Smother. Reach a Bit Further is an exercise in the happy / sad love song built around Benny Little's exquisite guitars, cathartic call and answer vocals from Hayden Thorpe / Tom Fleming and a distinctive galloping drumbeat from Chris Talbot. The single will be available on 14th November via digital download (RUG437D) and on limited edition coloured 12" vinyl collecting together the b-sides from the previous singles on Smother, some of which were only available on limited or digital only formats, as well as a new track, Thankless Thing, recorded with Richard Formby at the beginning of the Smother sessions.
The tracklisting is as follows:
A1 Reach A Bit Further
B1 Catherine Wheel
B2 Thankless Thing
