The Horrors confirm they've nearly finished their new album
Bassist Rhys Webb says singer Faris Badwan is sounding "the best he's ever sounded"
Speaking in this week's NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, bassist Rhys Webb reveals: "We're right at the end of the recording process and ready to roll. We're recording 11 tracks. It's sounding very exciting." He adds: "I always think there is more in common with out albums than a lot of people say, but we always want to move forward as a band and make something better than what we have done before, and I think we have definitely been successful with that. Faris [Badwan, singer] is sounding fantastic too – I think it's the best he has ever sounded."
Speaking about the potential first single from the album, Webb added: "It's a very upbeat song full of electronic oscillations. 'Euphoric' is definitely a good word to describe the way it sounds."
The album will be the band's fourth LP and the follow-up to 2011's 'Skying'. At the end of last year, the band put out a remix album of 'Skying', titled 'Higher'. Spaning over four 12" vinyls, two CDs and a DVD, the project features a range of artists from Blanck Mass to Andy Blake, Cherrystones, Chris Watson, Seahawks and JTC.
The Horrors have already announced a number of festival appearances for this summer including a headline slot on the Park Stage at Glastonbury and Truck Festival, plus appearances at Green Man and Manchester's Parklife.
