It could be released this year...
The Horrors

The Horrors are seemingly working on fresh material, which could be released later this year.

The Horrors have made the leap from cult heroes to indie success. 'Skying' saw the band move up a gear, taking their sound - a black-clad mixture of shoegaze, psych and Krautrock - into the national consciousness.

Touring widely, the band are now seemingly ready to go back into the studio. Speaking to the NME, Tom Cowan revealed that sessions for their proposed fourth album are already under way. "It's going really well, we’re most of the way there in terms of getting the songs together" he said. "And we’ve got a month more or so of writing and then we’re gonna go on tour, we’re aiming to be finished in September. The album's going to be out in September."

As for the material itself, fans of The Horrors should expect the unexpected. "Its different" Cowan continued. "But I don’t really wanna say anything because people will get the wrong idea. But it is different and it's possibly our best album yet. But that’s always a matter of opinion, I guess."

Not that the band will be studio bound over the summer. The Horrors have confirmed a number of festival shows, including a set at Manchester's Parklife Weekender.

Here's 'Still Life'.
