The Roar Club & Club Biscuit are delighted to be bringing PULLED APART BY HORSES to Bedford for their debut appearance at Esquires.
Pulled Apart By Horses are less a gang and more one big fucked up dysfunctional family. The Leeds quartet are a tightly knit rock band who make music that thrills and menaces, their songs armed with sucker-punch riffs and zinging choruses.
They formed in 2008 out of the ashes of various bands in their home town. Since then they have existed in their own chaotic ecosystem, embarking on relentless tours around the world and stopping only to make 2010’s punkily infectious self-titled debut and its snarling 2012 follow-up ‘Tough Love’ (produced by Gill Norton – Pixies/Foo Fighters etc). Everything they’ve done has been drenched in a sense of youthful recklessness, of all or nothing ardour.
With third album ‘Blood’ they took things a step forward with wider musical and lyrical themes, embracing their love of psychedelic cinema and developing as a band whilst retaining the thrilling ‘Horses’ sound.
With trials and tribulations of their critically acclaimed fourth album ‘The Haze’ behind them, Pulled Apart By Horses are approaching 2019 with fresh perspectives, open minds and a flurry of creativity, writing new songs, defining their sound and taking back control!
As Tom Hudson says “Our musical tastes change monthly, never mind over the course of the years, so we are never going to be the kind of band who’d do the same album every time”
“We’ve always been that band that are ‘too heavy for the indie kids, and too indie for the heavy kids’, but it’s quite cool that people don’t really know where to put us, because it means no-one can easily slap a genre name upon us. Now we have the freedom to just be who we are…”
Tickets are £11 in advance. Available from 10am, Friday the 31st of May from www.seetickets.com and shortly afterwards from Slide Records and Esquires Bar.
