Wild Beasts have shared the brand new video for "Mecca" from this year's Present Tense. The video is directed by Kate Moross. Watch it below.

The band are currently on tour in Europe and will be performing at London's Hyde Park as special guests of Arcade Fire on July 3rd. After that, they return to North America for headlining shows in New York (a free show at Pier 84 for Hudson River Rocks!), Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Boston, Montreal, Toronto, and Chicago, capped off by a performance at the Pitchfork Music Festival on Saturday, July 19th.

Alongside its breathtaking leap in production (Wild Beasts worked in close collaboration with co-producers Lexxx and Brian Eno protégé Leo Abrahams), Present Tense finds the band at the peak of their considerable songwriting powers - each one of the album's eleven tracks illuminating the precious, tender, sad and funny moments of modern life in their trademark plain-spoken poetics.
