The Horrors have confirmed that they've almost finished their new album.

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.
