From the early days as goth punk band from Southend-On-Sea to being instrumental behind the shoegaze revival, The Horrors have grown from being NME party darlings to a monolithic arena filling creative force. Taking on aspects of stadium rock, psychedelia, kraut and electronica, they are now one of the most exciting and daring bands in contemporary British rock.
Fans have been excited by recent release of brand new single Machine which comes from their forthcoming fifth studio album. They will be promoting their new material with a headline show at Cambridge Junction on Thursday 26th of October.

The band, consisting of lead vocalist Faris Badwan, guitarist Joshua Hayward, keyboardist and synthesiser player Tom Cowan, bassist Rhys Webb and drummer and percussionist Joe Spurgeon, first emerged with a goth influences garage sound from Southend in 2005. Within a year they had released their first EP and 2007 saw the release of their debut album Strange House which hit No. 37 in the UK album charts.
Taking some time out, The Horrors re-emerged in 2009 after shedding some of the theatrics in exchange for a development of sound towards kraut and psychedelia. The result was the stunning album Primary Colours which marked a permanent change in sonic direction which also saw them attract larger audiences and by the release of third album Skying two years later they had become somewhat of an stadium band.
Their latest album release came in 2014 and is titled Luminous which continued their run of impressive records.
“The Horrors go several steps further. Fragments of the group's past link together and the future illuminates in unison. Luminous is the album they've been destined to make.” - DIT Magazine
