For 2011's Smother, the group recorded in an isolated area in North Wales and reunited with co-producer Richard Formby. After a period of intense touring, Wild Beasts took a break to concentrate on recording their fourth album, Present Tense, which featured production by Lexxx and Leo Abrahams
. Upon its 2014 release, it reached number ten on the U.K. album chart.
Two years later, the band returned with Boy King, a more electronically inclined set of songs produced by Grammy winner John Congleton
. In September 2017, Wild Beasts revealed they had called it quits. A month later, they marked the occasion with the release of the Punk Drunk and Trembling EP, which included songs from the Boy King sessions. To accompany their farewell tour in February 2018, Wild Beasts issued Last Night All My Dreams Came True, a collection of the band's definitive songs recorded live at RAK Studios. ~ Katherine Fulton, Rovi
