Leeds quartet Pulled Apart By Horses would like to invite you to drink their Blood to celebrate the release of their third album and first ever live acoustic set.
The band have teamed up with the West Yorkshire Revolutions Brewery to concoct their own unique pale ale made with Blood Oranges and Yorkshire Tea. The beer will be available for a limited time at specialist pubs throughout the UK.
Named after their forthcoming record, Blood will be launched at The Brudenell Social Club on 29 August 2014 with tickets only available to competition winners who post a photo on Twitter and Instagram of them enjoying their favourite drink with the hashtag #PABHsBlood. The best shots will win a pair of tickets to come to the band’s very first acoustic show – over 18’s only.
Guitarist James Brown comments: “The idea of people drinking our Blood (not literally) is so exciting for us. It’s the kind of thing you talk about a lot but never usually happens so because this has become a reality we really want to celebrate it.”
The descision to accompany the ale launch with their first ever acoustic show follows a session they did recently while in The Netherlands, trying their hand at a fully stripped back set up for the first time.
With just over a month until the release of their highly anticipated third record, Pulled Apart By Horses have revealed the video for new single Lizard Baby.
“The glaringly colourful video for Lizard Baby is a visual juxtaposition of us playing, as we love to do, with some weird and wonderful ideas we came up with when collaborating with director Stephen Agnew (Drenge/The Cribs etc.),” explained guitarist James Brown.

Vocalist Tom Hudson added: “The meandering bass line and mysterious air to Lizard Baby goes hand in hand with the surreal, Italian art house inspired music video. Blending the iconic Dario Argento red, blue and green hued lighting alongside gonzo imagery to take us into the twisted world in which our Lizard Baby inhabits.”
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”. 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 play a series of warm up shows across the country, preparing for their main stage Reading and Leeds Festival slots.
They will also be playing a string European dates, supported by Dinosaur Pile-UP for Dr. Martens’ #STANDFORSOMETHING Tour. Fans can enter to win a pair of tickets for the Paris show at www.drmartens.com/uk/Gig-Competition.
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.
