are releasing their deluxe album edition of ‘An Awesome Wave’ on 22 October and today they’ve released a nice little 3 minute preview of the behind the scenes footage.

The release comes after a hugely successful year for Alt-J. Their critically acclaimed album ‘An Awesome Wave’ crash landed into the Top 20 in June whilst peaking at #3 on iTunes, making it one of the biggest debuts of the year so far and has been nominated for the Barclaycard Mercury Music Prize as well as nominations for both ‘Best New Act’ at the Q Awards and ‘Independent Breakthrough of The Year’ at the AIM Music Awards. Looks like they’ll all be eating a big fat turkey this Christmas.
