FMS favourites and breakthrough band of 2012, Alt-J, follow up the recent release of their double A-side single ‘Matilda/Fitzpleasure’ with news of their forthcoming debut album An Awesome Wave.
The band has just finished a UK tour with Wild Beasts, and another of their recent touring partners, man of the moment Ghostpoet, has remixed Matilda into hitherto unheard and intriguing shapes. Matilda (Ghostpoet ‘Gang Panang Adlit’ Remix) is available to stream and download now on SoundCloud.
Alt-J are set to play Live at Leeds on the 5th May and The Great Escape, Brighton on the 11th May, and have also just announced a run of headline shows.
An Awesome Wave will be released on 28th May via Infectious Music on CD/vinyl/digital.
