The Horrors have revealed that they will now release their album in 2014, having originally planned to release the record in September.

Speaking in this week's NME, which is on newsstands now or available digitally, guitarist Josh Hayward explained the reason for the delay in the follow up to 2011's 'Skying'.

He said: "We didn't finish mixing it in time so it's been pushed back. But now we've got more time we'll probably write more songs for it."

Meanwhile, frontman Faris Badwan added: "We basically had the choice between finishing the record and it being one way, or giving it a few more months and it being substantially better. Albums last forever, there's no point rushing it."

Badwan was also keen to confirm that there will be no guest stars on the album with the frontman holding the idea in some disregard: "Collaborations are for losers who want to boost their careers by getting fucking Rita Ora on their track," he said.

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'. Spanning over four 12" vinyl, 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 put in a number of festival appearances this summer, including a headline slot on The Park Stage at Glastonbury and Truck Festival, plus appearances at Green Man and Manchester's Parklife.
