The Horrors make their long-awaited return with a brand new single ‘Lout’, the title track of a 3 track EP due for release on March 12th via Wolf Tone/Caroline. 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.” The industrial-edged new single is the first new music from the band since 2017’s critically acclaimed fifth album ‘V’, and is a notable sonic departure from the band’s recent work; “There’s something about it which feels like a return to a heavier sound but really it’s a million miles away from anything we’ve done.” says keyboardist Tom Furse; “Keeping the sound aggressive and the beats heavy was a central tenet, everything seemed to fall around that.” 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 EP announcement is accompanied by a visceral video directed by the band in collaboration with Bunny Kinney and Isamaya Ffrench and scored by guitarist Joshua Third and keyboardist Tom Furse.
