The Horrors have announced details of their fifth studio album and a full UK tour for the autumn.

Entitled V (see what they did there?) – the album is released on September 22 through Wolftone/Caroline International. The album has already been preceded by the first single, ‘Machine’, and the band are claiming that V is their most diverse record to date.

Speaking of the album coming from different directions, frontman Faris Badwan said: “It is a risk. But life isn’t much fun without risk. It’s the antithesis of being creative if you know what you’re going to be doing every time.”

Keyboardist Tom Cowan added: “It’s natural, if you do see yourself as an artist, to progress and not play it safe. Bowie pre-empted the modern condition of not being able to stay in one place for very long, and I get frustrated with bands who stay still. Because then it does become a career.”


V was recorded in London and produced by Paul Epworth who has previously worked with Adele, FKA Twigs, Lorde, Rihanna and many others.

The track listing for V is:

Press Enter To Exit
Two Way Mirror
Weighed Down
World Below
It’s A Good Life
Something To Remember Me By
