The Leeds foursome who refer to themselves as more like a "big fucked-up dysfunctional family" than a band are bringing their chaotic and versatile music to Workman's.
Leeds quartet Pulled Apart by Horses are reining it in at at The Workman’s Club on October 11 this year.
Tickets are priced at €16.50 inclusive of booking fee and will go on sale this Friday at 9am.
Pulled Apart by Horses are a tightly-knit rock band who make music that thrills and menaces, their songs come armed with sucker punch riffs and zinging choruses.
Rising from the ashes of various bands in Leeds, Pulled Apart By Horses came into existence back in 2008. It was in this chaotic ecosystem that they thrived and to led them touring the globe and releasing their punchy self titled debut in 2010 and its follow up, Tough Love in 2012.
Their third album Blood took their youthful recklessness to the next level in terms of musical and lyrical content, exploring psychedelic cinema and developing as a band whilst retaining the thrilling ‘Horses’ sound.
However, fourth album The Haze has seen a return to form for the band, where they were allowed to fall in love again with the simple and pure joy of making music.
“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,” says Tom Hudson. “We’ve always been that band that are ‘too heavy for the indie kids, and too indie for the heavy kids’ in industry terms, 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”.
With their individuality fully expressed, the foursome feels that “now we have the freedom to just be who we are."
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!
