Pulled Apart By Horses announce new album ‘The Haze’


Leeds’s Pulled Apart By Horses have announced their Ross Orton-produced new album, The Haze, for release on March 17th 2017 via Caroline International.

Having recently shared their first new music since 2014’s Blood LP in ‘The Big What If’, dubbed “an instant mosh-pit maker” by the NME, Pulled Apart By Horses today reveal the new album’s opening and title track.

“We had to have ‘The Haze’ as the album opener – it gets down to business pretty quick!” vocalist and guitarist Tom Hudson reveals. “One of my favourite sections on the album is the Kraut-rock-vibe middle eight in this track. We wrote and demoed it in our ‘middle of no-where’ Welsh writing session, the weird atmospheric sounds at the start of it were recorded outside the lodge we were in. There were these giant whirring fans and birds tweeting everywhere. The bell that opens the album was this little brass doorbell that was hanging up in the porch too.”

Introducing: BRUTUS


Belgium’s heavy atmospheric trio BRUTUS announce the release of their debut album ‘BURST’ for February 24th 2017 via Hassle Records. Watch the powerful new video for lead single ‘All Along’ on YouTube here and catch them live through the UK from March 2017.

Hailing from Leuven, Belgium, BRUTUS create a pummelling, meteor-shower of sound. Singing drummer Stefanie Mannaerts mixes black-metal blast beats with math-rock flourishes whilst belting the most impassioned vocals, shifting from deceptively melodic to out-right larynx-punishing in the blink of an eye, whilst guitarist Stijn Vanhoegaerden takes ethereal post-rock tones to hardcore punk levels of speed and energy aside Peter Mulders powerful sub-frequency shift. The three collide to make a sound as monolithic and frantic as it is emotive.

Pre-order ‘Burst’ now from iTunes here – http://smarturl.it/Burst_iT or the band’s official store here – http://smarturl.it/Burst_Store.

Catch Brutus live at the following UK dates in March 2017.

2017 UK dates
