Southern California’s metaphysical DIY badasses HORSE THE BAND have signed to Roadrunner Records for Australia, New Zealand and Japan. This oft-misunderstood band of horses is currently in the studio recording their fourth full-length titled Desperate Living with producer Noah Shain at White Buffalo Studios in Los Angeles. An August release is expected.

The band also brought Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu into the studio with them. “Horse the Band has asked me to try to help them make a dying robot, an exploding keyboard, a dream laugh and a melted, drastic flute of redemption,” said Stewart. “Lucky for you and for me they have the wit and creativity to turn these things into music.”
HORSE the band has been developing their experimental sound through near-constant touring – even booking their own 45-country, 3-month world tour.
HORSE the band’s debut album, R. Borlax was released in 2003 and was followed by The Mechanical Hand in 2005 and A Natural Death in 2007.
