Pulled Apart By Horses New Single ‘V.E.N.O.M’

| On 15, Nov 2011

Pulled Apart By Horses are excited to announce that they are once again ready to charge from the starting stalls with the release of a brand new single, ‘V.E.N.O.M’ on the 16th of January 2012 through Transgressive Records.

Have a listen here:

Listeners of Zane’s Radio One show will have their first chance to hear the track when it is debuted today as the ‘Hottest Record In The World Right Now’. This will be the first opportunity to hear the results of the band’s work with legendary producer Gill Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters etc), ahead of the album’s release in 2012. The single will be released on digital and 7” formats and will be backed with two exclusive b-sides.“V.E.N.O.M. is a raw, breakneck beast that, once written, took on a life of it’s own,” explains drummer Lee Vincent. “It has all the elements that make our band fun to be in. Fast riffing, huge build ups, trashy lyrics and the all important pay- off.”

The band’s self-titled 2010 debut was a sonic maelstrom of screamo and hard disco riffage; here was heavy music that you could shake a tail feather to, pop music at its most corrupted. Dance music played by wiry punk weirdo’s. Essentially, the band’s much-talked about live show captured on plastic, early singles such as ‘Back To The Fuck Yeah’ and ‘High Five, Swan Dive, Nose Dive’ somehow ended up being played repeatedly by Radio 1, on whose playlists they gleefully sat like the mad tramp that’s gate-crashed the toff’s tea party. Fuck yeah indeed!

But things move fast. Pulled Apart By Horses have already moved way beyond those early days. The Leeds quartet have put meat on the brittle musical bones of their debut and with their second album have created a monster. It’s a much more muscular creature than its kid brother, one that could go toe-to-toe with titans like AC/DC, Nirvana or Queens Of The Stone Age and still come out looking pretty after twelve rounds. “Our debut was powerful, but it was done in no time at all,” says Lee Vincent. “Really it was an attempt to capture the energy and chaos of our live show. The new recordings sound fuller, bigger, more focused, the playing is better, we’re moving forward all the time. It’s got more balls too. Bigger balls. It’s direct and to the point. We’ve left nothing to chance.”
