After (just about) completing a low-key intimate UK tour, PULLED APART BY HORSES have now confirmed details of their plans for 2014. They release a brand new single ‘HOT SQUASH’ on 23rd June which received it’s debut Radio 1 play last night as the ‘Hottest Record In The World’ on Zane Lowe’s show. It’s the first track to be taken from their forthcoming third album ‘BLOOD’ out 1st September 2014. The follow up to 2012’s ‘Tough Love’, it was recorded in the band’s hometown of Leeds with producer Matt Peel (Eagulls). The single was mixed by Rich Costey (Muse / Foo Fighters / Mastodon / The Mars Volta) and is released on their new label Best of the Best through Sony/RED.
The first track is their personal take of hypnotic desert rock with soaring riffs, topped by both urgent yet brooding vocals. With lyrics partly inspired by the Paul Thomas Anderson movie ‘The Master’ drummer Lee Vincent explained “When we were writing and recording ‘Hot Squash’ I had just watched the film. Being a massive PTA fan I was blown away as usual and feeling suitably inspired I wrote a few lines of lyrics about cults and brainwashing. Tom Hudson (vocals/guitar) elaborated on these and Hot Squash was born! I love the ambiguity of ‘The Master’, attacking such a huge subject with such subtlety is just genius in my eyes.” The band is completed by James Brown (guitar) and Robert Lee (bass)
As well as appearances over the last few weeks at The Great Escape, Live at Leeds and YO1 in York the band are confirmed to play the main stage at Reading & Leeds Festival later this summer.
