HORSEBACK: Premiere New Songs

Posted 4/25/12

Chapel Hill, NC’s HORSEBACK has premiered a pair of brand new songs from their highly anticipated new full-length, Half Blood. The album’s blackened Americana composition “Arjuna” is currently streaming via Pitchfork at this location, while via NPR is hosting the album’s opener and an extensive interview with HORSEBACK mastermind Jenks Miller here.


The new record was recorded by Jenks at The Chateau and is a true synthesis of the eclectic sounds the band has explored in the past. Set for a May 8th release on CD/LP/Digital, the material on Half Blood is an amalgamation of drone, doom, black-metal, psychedelia, post-rock, noise, and ambience recorded with a wide array of instruments including guitar, bass, drums, keys, piano, bells, contact mics, field recordings, drum programming, noise and various signal processors. Pre-orders in addition to the album’s stunning artwork, created by Russian surrealist painter Denis Forkas Kostromitin, are available for viewing at this location.


Updated HORSEBACK news / album information will be made available at the Relapse Records website and the HORSEBACK Facebook page.


“a blackened and Southern-fried, Crazy Horse-style rocker that seamlessly dips into heavy backwoods drone 'n' gloom” - NPR


“The Invisible Mountain the same epic instrumental rock feel of Grails or Tarentel, and Miller's vocals are so growled and low in the mix that at times they are easy to mistake for another guitar. Both elements separate Horseback from the usual swampy sound of drone rock." - The Wire


“It's like a vision quest guided by Rhys Chatham, Tony Iommi and Matthew Bower" - The Independent
