Pulled Apart By Horses have announced details of the next release to be taken from their hotly anticipated third album Blood. Lizard Baby, which received it’s premiere on Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record last night, is out on September 1 on the band’s own label Best of the Best through Sony Red.
Partly inspired by the birth of the royal baby last summer, you can make your own interpretation as to what that means…
“I guess it vaguely touches on the media and public attention given to people in the lime light and how people can adopt alter egos or change with power,” explains Pulled Apart By Horses front man, Tom Hudson. “There’s also a bit of a dig at bands and performers who put on a false show or a contrived act.”
A three minute hypnotic rock sleaze fest, Lizard Baby is the follow up to Hot Squash which received amazing responses, spent four weeks on the Radio 1 playlist and caused the NME to proclaim, “Pulled Apart By Horses are now a serious rock band”. Of the new track, Q said “…this time around they’ve slowed down their schtick to a stoner-rock chug on this snarling gem.” These two teasers from their new album Blood demonstrate the new musical and lyrical maturity the band have achieved since their last release.
Pulled Apart By Horses have also just confirmed some new regional UK dates in addition to their European dates for Dr Martins and main stage Reading and Leeds Festival slots.
