Pulled Apart By Horses
Having subverted the mainstream since 2008, these soft handed punks have been causing quite a stir with their manic art-punk convulsion. Since their inauguration above The Packhorse pub in Leeds; they have toured tirelessly wowing critics, bands and audiences alike.
Thus attracting the attention of everyone here at 'Transgressive Towers' who immediately set to work planning the strictly limited 12" vinyl titled 'Live At Leeds' which was released on Record Store Day (17 April 2010) in the UK. Obviously their eponymous debut was warmly received worldwide after it's release on the 21st June 2010, as were the four kick ass singles which heralded its arrival. Its follow up 'Tough Love' was released in 2012 and continued the trend of incredibly raucous songs accompanied by even more impactful live shows.
They've just released their third album 'Blood', which has received incredible responses across the board from critics. With an upcoming UK and European tour be sure to catch them if they come your way!
Surely the greatest live band in Britain? Yeah Buddy!
