Disclosure Cancel Wild Life 2018, Announce That They Are Working on a New Album

When it comes to groovy beats and catchy basslines, Disclosure are undoubtedly some of this generation's biggest forward-thinkers. Ever since brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence emerged back in 2010, they've projected nothing but 100% quality in everything they do; from their collaborations with stars such as Lorde, The WeekndSam Smith, and AluneGeorge, among others, to their live performances and wonderfully produced  music videos.

One of their most important accomplishments however is the establishment of their yearly festival, Wild Life, in collaboration with also UK act Rudimental. It started back in 2014 as a successful show series, that made it all around the world, and Disclosure and Rudimental decided to expand it into a festival in 2015, with performents such as Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Jamie xx, Gorgon City and Nicolas Jaar. Sadly however, the highly successful festival isn't coming back to Brighton City Airport this year.

We embarked on a new journey three years ago by launching @wild_life_fest at Shoreham Airport withdseeseeseeedeeeswwê4e3eëëë44ë44ê4e4e3e4e4ëwe3wws our close friends, Rudimental. We’d not long finished touring our asses off of debut album, Settle and that inaugural year of the festival in 2015 allowed us to embark on our next chapter with the release of second album, Caracal. Being able to curate your own festival with your mates and invite legends like Nas, Ice Cube and Chaka Khan to play alongside amazing new talent such as Stormzy, Kaytranada and AJ Tracy, stack them up against a host of flawless DJ’s like Annie Mac, Jackmaster and Armand Van Helden and throw parties with Elrow is literally a dream come true. However, with a busy recording schedule ahead as we embark on album number 3 we’re going to give the green grass of Shoreham Airport a break throughout 2018 and come back bigger and better in 2019. Thanks to everyone who attended the festival these last three years and gave us some of the best times we’ve ever had as Disclosure, we’re hugely thankful for the opportunity to share that with you, see you all soon.

In a recent Instagram post, the duo thanked their fans for the wonderful moments of the three previous Wild Life installations, and announced they'll give the festival a one-year break, because they're working on their 3rd full length album. Other than the cancelation, this statement is sure to excite fans as Disclosure's sophomore album Caracal was released back in September 2016, and their 3-track EP Moog For Love in summer 2016. Let's hope some new tunes arrive fast!
