It’s been four years since British synth-krautrockers The Horrors made our ears happy with their fifth LP called “V”. A first-class work of multi-layered-soundscapes. The Horrors’ EP “Lout” is a quick listen at only three tracks, and it doesn’t waste a second of fuzzy, thrashing sound. “Lout” is the British band’s first release of new music since 2017’s “V“, and is a chaotic and addicting outpouring of noise. From the pulsating synths on “Org” to the driving distorted guitar on the title track, The Horrors take no breaks from their intense, high-energy creation on their latest release.

A great Surpriiiise! that The Horrors are back to deafen/delight in equal measure. Our new song “Lout” is available to dissect, devour and destroy on all streaming platforms now. Taken from our upcoming EP, released in full on 12.03.21. Thank you to Lauren Laverne for giving it its first play today.

They’re finally back from wherever they were hiding. And how! New single “Lout”, the title-track from a new upcoming EP, is a mind-slashing, industrial drone that keeps on pounding and pounding until the wall comes down. Hefty stuff, folks! Just the way I like it, any day, any time!

The long-awaited return with a brand-new single “Lout” released on blood red 7” vinyl, strictly limited to 1500 copies worldwide.

According to lead singer Faris Badwan, “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.”

This bold new sound is partnered with a striking visual aesthetic carried across the artwork, videos, upcoming merch collection and press shots, born from collaborations between the band and creative director Bunny Kinney, legendary beauty executive Isamaya Ffrench, videographer Jordan Hemingway and Loverboy designer Charles Jeffrey.

The Horrors the band returns to their roots with more of a Ministry/Nine Inch Nails edge. This three-song EP takes a sharp left turn from the band’s more recent albums which swam more in the pop/electronic pool and we’re happy to see the band embrace the heavier side of their sound.
