The Horrors announce new EP 'Against The Blade'

Following on from the release of their three-track offering 'Lout' earlier this year, The Horrors have now announced their plans for a new EP, landing next month.

The new collection 'Against The Blade' is being previewed by the release's title-track, and is set to be available from the 5th November via Wolf Tone/Fiction.

Speaking about the new EP, frontman Faris Badwan said, “The ‘Against the Blade’ EP is a further descent into chaos. it’s about the freedom that comes with abandoning all hope, giving up control, and accepting that you will always be at odds with the world around you."

While bassist Rhys Webb added, “Once the ball started rolling with writing Lout I liked the idea of challenging the band to push all the song’s in as extreme a direction as possible.

“‘Against The Blade’ and ‘Twisted Skin’ were both written in Southend-on-Sea over lockdown, it’s the most DIY music we’ve ever made. The first demos were written in my bedroom and work continued in Joe’s studio The Bunker, which is a shipping container that overlooks the estuary. The only element recorded in an actual studio were the vocals, we even recorded guitars in my front room.”

'Against The Blade' Tracklist:
1. Against The Blade
