Watch the All The King's Men video from Leeds based Wild Beasts.
This is the second single taken from the critically acclaimed 'Two Dancers' album and is released on 5th October 2009 on Domino as a single download which will include a remix by Banjo or Freakout. It was produced by Richard Formby whose credits include Mogwai and Herman Dune amongst many others.
This song is the first single featuring Tom Fleming (bassist/guitarist) on lead vocals since 2008's 'The Devil's Crayon' which featured on the band's excellent debut album 'Limbo Panto'.
