Recently releasing their fourth LP Present Tense Wild Beasts have premiered a brand new music video for their single “A Simple Beautiful Truth.” Wearing futurist garb and dancing around mountaintops, the band says in a press release “We were inspired enough by the absurdist approach taken by Talking Heads to don electric suits and dance in the ether on the top of a Beacons mountain. We wanted to capture the weightlessness of a song like ‘A Simple Beautiful Truth,’ to attempt something so ridiculous as to be sublime. The experience was strangely liberating and we asked ourselves why we hadn’t done this before.”

In addition to the video the band has announced a brief number of new North American shows to their world tour. Scroll down below to watch the video and get the full details of the show schedule.
