The Horrors recently confirmed that they will now be performing live as a four-piece after keyboardist Tom Furse announced a break from touring “for the foreseeable future”.

“We’ve spoken about how this will affect our live setup and have decided that we’re not going to replace Tom or enlist the services of a cyborg in his place – instead we are going to be playing as a four-piece from now on,” the band said in a statement.

Furse, who will continue to be a part of the band, said that it had “been clear for a while that touring life isn’t really for me”, adding: “I’m just more of a maker than a performer.”
