Band to play free gig in Dalston to celebrate release of 'Skying'
The Horrors have announced that they will play a secret live show tonight in London to celebrate the release of their third LP ‘Skying’.
With their new album released today, the band have confirmed on their Facebook page that they will play a free gig tonight at the Shacklewell Arms in Dalston, with entry to be decided on a “first come first served” basis.
In a video interview with NME, The Horrors’ Josh Hayward confessed that recording the new album had been a “struggle”. He said: “It’s the first album we’ve produced ourselves, which is a big step and we’ve also built our own studio to do it in, which was an act of stupidity really.” To see the video in full, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click.

Last month, The Horrors announced details of a 14-date UK tour in October in support of the new record, which kicks off with a show at Norwich’s Waterfront on October 11 and finishes up with a hometown gig at Southend Chinnerys on October 27. The dates also include their biggest London headline show to date at Camden’s Roundhouse.
