Dedicated fans of the UK's “Zombie Garage” band The Horrors finally get a reward for their patience as the band's hotly anticipated new album Primary Colours nears completion... the first single, 8-minute epic “Sea Within a Sea,” just became available as a free download for subscribers to the band's official newsletter. Find out more on the flipside!
A week ago, the band posted a mysterious countdown on their official site www.thehorrors.co.uk, with no mention of what would arrive when the clock ran out at exactly midnight GMT on March 17th. Once the magic hour struck, those on the band's mailing list received a link to download the song for free (don't worry latecomers, it looks like you can still sign up).
Produced by Portishead's Geoff Barrow, “Sea Within a Sea” is also accompanied by a retro-funky music video (directed by Doug Hart, former bassist for The Jesus and Mary Chain) that auto-plays on the official site's main page. While you're there, be sure to look for updates on the band's comeback tour, as the first round of dates are now being posted.
Primary Colours is slated for release on May 4th.
