After debuting at number two in the UK charts, the album – which features the songs Yuk Foo, Beautifully Unconventional, Don’t Delete The Kisses, Formidable Cool and Space & Time – was named in the top three best albums of 2017 by NME, Q and Drowned in Sound, and led to a BRIT Award nomination for Best British Group, as well as two NME Award nominations. The 2018 Hyundai Mercury Prize Awards show will be held at London’s Eventim Apollo on 20th September.

Visions Of A Life is the follow up to Wolf Alice’s 2015 Gold-selling debut album My Love Is Cool, which also hit No. 2 in the UK charts and No. 12 on the Billboard alternative albums chart in the US. In its wake the band were nominated for the Mercury Prize, an Ivor Novello Award, a BRIT for Breakthrough Act and Grammy for Best Rock Performance, and took home two NME Awards.

Wolf Alice have spent 2018 performing on tour and at festivals across the world, including support slots for Liam Gallagher, Queens of the Stone Age and the Foo Fighters.
