The LP is the follow-up to 2014's Present Tense and you can hear the album's first single 'Get Bang' now by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
Speaking about the album, frontman Hayden Thorpe said: "It became apparent that that guitar almost became the character within the songs, that phallic character, the all-conquering male," he says. "I'm letting my inner Byron fully out, I thought I'd tucked him away, but he came screaming back like the Incredible Hulk."
He continued: "I think Boy King is an apocalyptic record. It's about swimming in the abyss. When you think about sex, you've got to think about death, they're one and the same.”
The tracklisting for Boy King is as follows:
'Get My Bang'
'He The Colossus'
'Eat Your Heart Out Adonis'
