The album, which has been produced by Foo Fighters/Pixies man Gil Norton, is officially released next Monday (January 23), but you can hear it in full now.

Speaking to NME about the album, bassist Rob Lee explained how it differs from their self-titled debut: “This album is a lot more direct, we’re better musicians and songwriters now. On the first one, we weren’t that good as musicians, but now we’ve been touring relentlessly and we’ve got to be better players.”

He continued: “We made our debut ourselves and it wasn’t ambitious. This feels more like our first proper album and not just something for self–gratification. Every song on this album has its own personality and really stands on its own”.

Pulled Apart By Horses will play a UK tour in February 2012. The band will play 10 shows, which kick off at Glasgow King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut on February 13 and run until February 23, when the band headline London’s Electric Ballroom.
