The Horrors’ Return

After a second album that was one of our Favorites of 2009 (and we weren’t alone, it made the lists of the NME, and the Mercury Music Award committee), The Horrors will return on 26th July with a third album, called Skying.

Lots of their plaudits over the last few years have cited the excellent movement between the first album, which was almost Goth metal, and the second, which was an off-kilter experiment in dark rock (thanks in part to the involvement in production of Portishead‘s Geoff Barrow).

If the new single “Still Life” is anything to go by, no one can complain that The Horrors are regurgitating old ideas.
