The Horrors return with new single 'Lout'

Having remained unusually quiet since the release of their highly-praised fifth album 'V' in 2017, The Horrors have now returned to deliver a brand new single.

The new track 'Lout' is their first piece of material since their last full-length, and will feature on their forthcoming new three-track EP, also called 'Lout', which is out on the 12th March via Wolf Tone/Virgin Music Label & Artist Services. The EP tracks ‘Lout’ and ‘Orb’ will also be released on blood red 7” vinyl, strictly limited to 1500 copies worldwide, and can be pre-ordered here.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Faris Badwan said, “Lout is about the relationship between choice and chance, compulsive risk-taking and pushing your luck. As a band, particularly live, we’ve always had an aggressive side and as we began writing new songs it became clear that we were heading in that direction.”

With keyboardist Tom Furse adding, “There’s something about it which feels like a return to a heavier sound but really it’s a million miles away from anything we’ve done. Keeping the sound aggressive and the beats heavy was a central tenet, everything seemed to fall around that.”

And bassist Rhys Webb finalising, “It’s the nastiest music we've made since Strange House. An intense barrage of industrial noise. A return to the spirit and attitude of our debut LP but blasted into the future.”
