The band will play The 100 Club on May 10
The Horrors have announced plans for an intimate London show.
The five-piece will play the 100 Club on May 10, following the release of their fourth album ‘Luminous’ on May 5. Tickets are on sale now. ‘Luminous’ is the follow up to The Horrors’ 2011 LP ‘Skying’ and features recent single ‘I See You’. 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).
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”.
