a]The Horrors[/a] are streaming their new album 'Luminous' online. Scroll down to listen now.

The band's fourth album will be released on Monday (May 5) and features the singles 'So Now You Know' and 'I See You.' It is the follow up to 2011 album 'Skying'.

Speaking in a recent interview with NME, the band revealed the inspiration behind a number of tracks from the new album. Speaking about 'I See You', bassist Rhys Webb said: "When we were writing, this track made us realise we were going in the right direction. It started to shape the final picture."

Frontman Faris Badwan, meanwhile, said opening track 'Chasing Shadows' had been made like a techno track, while 'First Day Of Spring' was described by Josh Hayward as a "fast-moving train that has no intention of stopping" and is, according to fellow member Tom Cowan, one of "the least electronic tracks on the album".

The five-piece will play an album launch show in London at the 100 Club on May 10. Tickets are on sale now.

The Horrors are yet to announce a full UK tour in support of the release, however in addition to their 100 Club show, the band will play a number of festivals throughout the country including Field Day in London (June 8), Isle of Wight (June 13-15) and Reading and Leeds (August 22-24).
