Yesterday British art-rockers Wild Beasts announced their breakup in a typed up statement, signed by the band and posted to Instagram. Now the band have announced a final EP, Punk Drunk and Trembling, and three farewell concerts. They have also shared the EP’s title track, “Punk Drunk and Trembling.” The EP includes two other songs, both which were previously released on the deluxe vinyl edition of their last album, 2016’s Boy King. The Punk Drunk and Trembling EP is due out digitally October 20 and on limited edition 10-inch vinyl on November 17, both via Domino. Check out the tracklist and song below, followed by the band’s final shows.

Wild Beasts released five critically well-received albums. Here is yesterday’s full band statement on the breakup again: “Wild Beasts are coming to an end. 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 care takers to something precious and don’t want to have it diminish as we move forward in our lives. Thank you for your love and energy and for helping us make it what it is. We consider ourselves remarkably fortunate to have lived out this dream. Before we go, we’d like to celebrate with you.”
