Wolf Alice were honored with the 2018 Mercury Music Prize on Thursday for their sophomore album, “Visions of a Life”. The reward is given every year to the best album in the United Kingdom by a British or Irish act, and includes a £25,000 prize. Noel Gallagher, Arctic Monkeys and Lily Allen were also nominated. They also beat bookies’ favorite Nadine Shah, who was tipped to win with her album Holiday Destination, which recounts her experiences as a second-generation immigrant.

“The first label meeting we ever had, we walked into a room, and the geezer said, ‘You don’t look like a band at all. What are you? What are you supposed to be? All your songs sound different. You don’t look like each other,'” bassist Theo Ellis said at the ceremony at London’s Hammersmith Apollo.

“We never really figured it out, but here we are,” he continued. The band’s debut album, My Love Is Cool, was nominated for the Mercury Prize in 2015.

Wolf Alice have just finished up an Australian tour on the back of second album ‘Visions Of A Life’, and have now shared a new video for ‘Sadboy’.

But the four-piece seem to be getting in the spirit of Haloween in the new clip: it sees the band head to an extremely house party, and sees Ellie Rowsell getting into an extreme spot of bother.

Wolf Alice are set to play a host of summer festivals this year, including Reading & Leeds, Latitude, TRNSMT and more. They’re also set to support Foo Fighters on a handful of stadium dates.

“Sadboy” Wolf Alice Visions Of A Life. Available now

'Don't Delete The Kisses'

It’s a new Wolf Alice track from the upcoming album due to be released late september.

The band have shared ’Don’t Delete The Kisses’, the second offering from upcoming album “Visions Of A Life” and we’re here to tell you that it’s an absolute peach. The track follows the earlier first song “Yuk Foo” in previewing the follow-up to 2015 debut “My Love Is Cool” due out on 29th September via Dirty Hit.

The band start an intimate US tour in Chicago tonight (5th July). The run extends through July, before a UK and European run in the Autumn. They’ve also shared the artwork for the new album ‘Visions Of A Life’.

Listen to ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ below, view the tour dates and get nice and properly excited for ‘Visions Of A Life’!. ‘Don’t Delete The Kisses’ is, in short, incredible. Its verses are like a continuation of ‘The Wonderwhy’, in that frontwoman Ellie Rowsell softly speaks her words instead of singing them. “I’m typing you a message that I know I’ll never send/Rewriting old excuses, delete the kisses at the end,” she sighs at one point, a piece of ultra relatable poetry for anyone navigating love and lust and trying to play it cool with your crush.

Ok we have been waiting for this day for a while now but it’s here finally and we are able to tell you that we have a new album!!!! ‘Visions Of A Life’ will be available for you on the 29th of September. We are immensely proud of this album and it will give us great pleasure to share it with you.
