The Horrors have announced that they will return with new 3-song EP Lout on March 12th via Wolf Tone/Caroline. The announcement comes with the release of the first single and title track “Lout.”
While The Horrors direction has continuously shifted to electronic rock that band shifts back into a more aggressive sound found on their debut. With “Lout” they channel a 90s industrial rock sound that would make Trent Reznor proud.
About the song/EP lead singer Faris Badwan said:
Lout is about the relationship between choice and chance, compulsive risk-taking and pushing your luck. As a band, particularly live, we’ve always had an aggressive side and as we began writing new songs it became clear that we were heading in that direction.”
With bassist Rhys Webb adding:
“It’s the nastiest music we’ve made since Strange House. An intense barrage of industrial noise. A return to the spirit and attitude of our debut LP but blasted into the future.”
