A great headphones album, filled with all sorts of uplifting, multi-layered textures is a serious contender for the soundtrack of the summer.

After a summer of festival slots playing at Field Day, Lovebox, The Isle Of Wight, Reading and Leeds and End Of The Road. The Horrors will be performing one event in London today at the Troxy. Following a triumphant return to the music landscape with the release of their exquisitely crafted fourth album ‘Luminous’, The announcement was made for an autumn tour in 2014 having only one London show following a string of US dates in New York, LA and Austin, and of course their sell-out album launch Show at The 100 Club. The horrors will play 10 shows across the UK in September and October including stops in Norwich, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham, Sheffield, Bristol, Worthing before ending their tour in Troxy, London.

The Horrors have come from a gothic, punk band from Southend-On-Sea to being one of the UK’s leading synth-laden shoegaze, psychedelic bands of the noughties. The band supported Kings of Leon at their show in Newcastle over the summer and having now recently unveiled the cinematic visuals for the album’s lead single ‘So Now You Know‘ a striking coming of age narrative spanning the desolate landscapes of an empty LA desert town currently playlisted on Radio 1, 6Music, Absolute Radio and XFM, are becoming a name to watch out for.
