Pulled Apart By Horses album and dates
Pulled Apart By Horses, the debut album from the Yorkshire quartet of the same name, is due for release through Transgressive Records on 21st June 2010. Led by the single Back to the Fuck Yeah, released on digital download and limited-edition 7” vinyl, available just prior to the album on June 14th, Pulled Apart By Horses is a blistering document of a band that manages to rock extremely hard yet still remember the importance of vital hooks and incredible songwriting (and having fun).
The band’s highly-anticipated debut album will not disappoint those lucky enough to witness their incendiary live shows over the past months. ‘Chaotic’ is a massive understatement for the nuclear-powered PABH live experience, their every show a violent whirlwind of noise and acrobatics - of the body as much as the guitar. In a much kinder sense, the band’s onstage antics echo the medieval execution technique after which they were named. Certainly, the members have the scars to prove it. Guitarist James, who had a tendency to jump on his knees, ended up in hospital on a drip after an infection turned his leg into a gigantic yellow balloon. “The Doctor said if I’d left it a couple more days it would’ve spread to my balls, and once it gets to your balls it spreads everywhere.”
At last year’s Leeds Festival, vocalist and guitarist Tom knocked a chunk out of his shin and ended up with a ‘spurter’. It wasn’t until the end of the show that he even realised his jeans were black with blood. “I thought, I’ve smashed my leg and broken my guitar strap, I may as well crowd-surf. I got back onstage and realised I had a bloody hand print on my shoulder,” he laughs.
