The Horrors' Faris Badwan has compared working on a new album to becoming obsessed with Thundercats toys as a child.

The band, who will begin work on a follow up to 2011's 'Skying' after their summer tour, told The Guardian that they find the recording process very intense:

I just think that's because when you're working on something you really love and care about, it's very immersive. Like when you're a kid and you get really into playing with your ThunderCats toys – you don't want to play with anything else.



Earlier this week The Horrors guitarist Joshua Hayward spoke to NME about the band's plans for a fourth studio album. The band would begin work on the follow-up to 'Skying' when they finish their summer tour, he said: "In the autumn we're going to write a new record, we'll go back into our studio and record it and hopefully get it out as soon as we can. We haven't started it yet because we all write together, but we've all got a few ideas."

The Horrors are playing at this year's T in the Park which is taking place July 6-8 in Balado Park, Kinross. To check the availability of T In The Park 2012 tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.?.

The Horrors are also among the bands playing an intimate hometown show as part of JD Roots, who have partnered with NME to support local music and search for Britain's Best Small Venue. The band will play Southend Chinnerys on May 9, with The Cribs returning to Wakefield Theatre Royal on May 1. Scottish rockers Twin Atlantic played Glasgow's King Tut's as part of the series of gigs last night (3).
