Band open up about 'psychedelic' experience of making their third album

The Horrors have said that their new album ‘Skying’ was inspired by “taking loads of pills”.

Speaking in this week’s issue of NME which is on UK newsstands now or available digitally, bassist Rhys Webb said of the band’s chemical indulgences and musical ambitions in the making of their third album:

It was massively inspired by taking loads of pills, loads of ecstasy. We want to make music that people enjoy and lose themselves in. You can listen in any situation, it can just be waking up in the morning and sticking a record on. It doesn’t matter where you are, or what you’re doing, the thing we like is trying to take you somewhere else. To remove you from wherever you are.

The band, who released ‘Skying’ last month, play Reading And Leeds Festivals later this month. They then tour comprehensively in the autumn.
