The Horrors are a five-piece indie rock band hailing from Southend-On-Sea. They formed in 2005 after Faris Badwan (lead vocals) met Rhys Webb (bass) and Tom Cowan (keyboard & synths) through their share interests in 60s garage rock and new wave. They added Joshua Hayward (guitar) and Joseph Spurgeon (drums & percussion) to finish their full line-up, and began recording their debut album ‘Strange House’. They hit the ground running straight away, making appearances at the Glastonbury Festival in the UK and the Summer Sonic Festival in Japan that year, as well as performing alongside Crystal Castles at the NME Awards show in 2008.
The five are back again with their latest single ‘Machine’, debuting on BBC 6 music ahead of their upcoming album ‘V’ set to be released September 2017.
