Wolf Alice, one of the biggest breakthrough independent bands of recent years, make their eagerly anticipated return, announcing new album Visions Of A Life and single ‘Yuk Foo’, which is available now across all services. Visions Of A Life will be released on 29 September via Dirty Hit / Liberator Music.

A first taste of the new record, ‘Yuk Foo’, was premiered as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World on BBC Radio 1. Annie Mac played Wolf Alice’s song ‘Giant Peach’ – from their Gold-certified debut LP My Love Is Cool – as her first track on her first broadcast when she took over the reins of Radio 1’s prestigious weekday evening show in March 2015, and repeated the feat for her return to the station.  ‘Yuk Foo’ received its first local play on triple j’s Good Nights with Linda Marigliano.

As comebacks go, a gauntlet is hurled by the exhilarating rage-rush of ‘Yuk Foo’, briskly laying waste to all it sees in a little over two minutes. “You bore me, you bore me to death,” screams singer and guitarist Ellie Rowsell: “Deplore me? No I don’t give a shit.”

Who the “you” in question is up to us. “We wanted to make it open to interpretation, so that anyone who was frustrated at something could have it as their anthem,” says Ellie. She herself was inspired by “being sick and fed up of certain expectations…for me a lot of it is about being a young woman. Even the shit, everyday wolf-whistle thing. As I get older, I feel like ‘Why have I always put up with that?’ When I sing that kind of song, it’s everything that I want to do when that happens.”

Wolf Alice are Ellie Rowsell (vocals, guitar), Joff Oddie (guitar, vocals), Theo Ellis (bass) and Joel Amey (drums, vocals). The band’s 2015 debut album My Love Is Cool hit No. 2 in the UK charts in June of that year, and No. 12 on the Billboard alternative albums chart in the US. They were nominated for the Mercury prize, Ivor Novello Award, a Brit for Breakthrough Act and Grammy for Best Rock Performance, and took an NME Award for Best Live Band. They crisscrossed the UK, the US, Australia (Falls Festival 2014, Splendour in the Grass 2015 + headline shows), Japan and Europe on the mother of all two-year tours.
