Wild Beasts reveal psychedelic 'Mecca' video

Animated video was directed by Kate Moross

Wild Beasts have revealed the video for upcoming single 'Mecca.'

The third single to be taken from the band's fourth album, 'Present Tense' follows 'Wanderlust' and 'A Simple Beautiful Truth'. The single will be available from August 4.

The video features the Kendal band surrounded by psychedelic visuals, soft colours and choppy animation and was directed by Kate Moross, who has also directed videos for Jessie Ware, Simian Mobile Disco and Disclosure.

Wild Beasts' next UK show will see the band perform on the John Peel Stage at Glastonbury on the first day of the festival (Friday, June 28). They appear on a bill that also includes Chvrches, Lykke Li and Kaiser Chiefs. The band will then support Arcade Fire at the band's London gig at Hyde Park on July 3.

Earlier this year frontman Hayden Thorpe spoke to NME, saying that they "don't expect people to buy their albums any more", and that sales figures are "not essential".
