Wild Beasts are back with new song "Get My Bang," the first taste of fifth album Boy King. The U.K. band will release the follow up to 2014's Present Tense via Domino on August 5. A press release quotes lead singer Hayden Thorpe as saying the band have made a "phallic" album. He goes on to add, "I think Boy King is an apocalyptic record. It's about swimming in the abyss. When you think about sex, you've got to think about death, they're one and the same.”
