Swirling guitar riffs and synthesizer beats are the Horrors' MO, giving psychedelia and goth a contemporary revamp. The
band borrows liberally from the distortion-layered rock of '80s shoegaze outfits like My Bloody Valentine and the Jesus and
Mary Chain. Anyone who is a fan of those influences will want to get concert
tickets to upcoming performances!
The Horrors couldn't help but attract attention, even upon forming in 2005. Their black clothes and tousled emo mops earned
them some detractors in the press (as if having a lead singer dubbed Spider Webb wasn't enough), but they had music to back
up their image. Their debut, 2007's Strange House, silenced their critics, earning 'wait and see' responses on both sides
of the Atlantic.
While their first record was soaked in black, the Horrors issued a follow-up with a record titled Primary Colours. But
make no mistake; the band's dark music hasn't lost its charm. Their update on post-punk earned them a lot of notice in America,
widening their fan base immediately.
Anyone who loves '80s flavored post-punk music with a goth flair will love the music of the Horrors, an English band making
its way across the U.S. on a string of tour dates. If you haven't had the chance to see the Horrors rock the stage live, now's
the time to do so! Head to StubHub for rock
