Biography

Pulled Apart By Horses (Formed 2008) Pulled Apart By Horses is a four-piece alternative rock band. They are made up of the members Tom Hudson, James Brown, Lee Vincent and Robert Lee. They are known for their singles, "High Five, Swan Dive, Nose Dive" and "Lizard Baby".

Formation: After each member's former bands split up, the four members joined together to form Pulled Apart By Horses. James Brown contacted Lee Vincent, formerly from the band Concentration Champ, through a music forum. James Brown wanted to start a band in Leeds, taking inspiration from such bands as "The Jesus Lizard". The pair invited Robert Lee to play bass, and the trio rehearsed regularly on the outskirts of Leeds. They then invited Tom Hudson, lead singer, to join them after his previous band, Mother Vulpine, broke up. After their final formation in 2008, the foursome consistently rehearsed above 'The Packhorse' pub in Leeds, where they also performed live shows and secret gigs. 

Musical Career Between 2008 and 2009: They released numerous singles through independent and DIY record labels. Eventually, they were signed by Transgressive Records, and released their debut album, which was self-titled, "Pulled Apart By Horses", in 2010. Pulled Apart By Horses took a break from touring in August 2011, and went to the Mennow Valley Studio is Wales to record with Gil Norton (Foo Fighters & Pixies record producer). Pulled Apart By Horses second album, "Tough Love", was released on 20th January 2012 to critical acclaim. Their third album, "Blood" was released in September 2014. This got them a place at 38, in the UK top 40. Pulled Apart By Horses are known for performing such chaotic live gigs, that the band members are frequently injured.

Pulled Apart By Horses

Rockers Pulled Apart By Horses axed their set at Britain's Leeds Festival on Sunday (24Aug14) just minutes before they were due on stage.

The band was slated to play at the Leeds, England leg of the two-site event following a set in Reading, England on Saturday (23Aug14), but fans were informed of the cancellation while they waited for the group to walk on stage.

A message posted on the big screens put the scrapped gig down to "unforeseen circumstances", but a member of the group's crew reportedly took to the microphone to tell the booing crowd the set had been called off due to illness.

Pulled Apart By Horses - Blood Album Review


Pulled Apart By Horses burst onto the scene four years ago with their self-titled debut which saw them immediately rise to the top of the UK underground both in terms of the quality of their music and success with a noise influenced hard rock sound. They then followed that with 'Tough Love' in 2012; an album that saw them brush off some of their rawness and heaviness to embrace their accessible rock side. Now with 'Blood' they cast aside even more of that original sound - but it's by no means a bad thing.

Pulled Apart By Horses - Blood Album Review

Kicking things off is 'Hot Squash' which signals that Pulled Apart By Horses are opting to hypnotise and entice you this time around rather than kick you in the teeth. They do this with the more groove orientated riffs and vocalist Tom Hudson adopting an eerier tone. 'ADHD In HD' starts off in a clangy way that's almost no-wave. It goes on to take a Sonic Youth influence with a sarcastic tone underlined by seriousness, not to mention the jumpy breakdown and erratic ending. 'Skull Noir' might as well be called Skull Crushing; it's opening riff hits you so hard with Black Sabbath-esque strength and doom, before going into more high octane jumpy rock 'n' roll with 'Life will always get you hurt' being bluntly repeated. 'You Want It' is built up with fuzzy bass and driving drums before becoming the most energetic track on the album with its 'I'm going out of my mind, but I can take it' sentiment.

When listening to this album you see a band that have evolved from impatiently hammering out noise to patiently putting a spell on you. That's not to say that their spontaneous work is bad (it's actually really good), but the band focusing on their craft has resulted in them creating a different kind of beast altogether. Take 'Outahead' for instance; where Hudson once screamed bloody murder in your face, he now dizzies you with his gloomy vocals which one can't deny is just as effective. Following that is 'Medium Rare' which is their grooviest song yet; an incredibly loose and danceable hook that Queens Of The Stone Age probably wouldn't have minded claiming ownership to. The album ends the most upbeat thing the band have ever done with the guitars cooled down a notch and Hudson joyously yelling the song's title.

Pulled Apart By Horses Brew Up Blood Beer


Pulled Apart By Horses

British rockers Pulled Apart By Horses have become the latest musician to brew up their own beer.

The Epic Myth stars have teamed up with tastemakers at the West Yorkshire Revolutions Brewery in their native north-west England to create the pale ale they've called Blood, which features hints of blood oranges and tea.

Guitarist James Brown says, "The idea of people drinking our 'Blood' is so exciting for us! It's the kind of thing you talk about a lot but never usually happens, so because this has become a reality we really want to celebrate it!"

Pulled Apart By Horses - Hot Squash Single Review


If you've paid any attention to the UK rock scene over the last few years, you'll probably be familiar with Leeds quartet Pulled Apart By Horses, with their unique, noise-influenced, heavy rock that saw them quickly rise up through the underground and take a step into the mainstream. After 2010's wonderfully weird self-titled debut as well as 2012's more accessible 'Tough Love', they are back with new single 'Hot Squash'; a taste of their upcoming third album 'Blood' (out September 1st via their own label Best Of The Best). 

Pulled Apart By Horses - Hot Squash Single Review

'Hot Squash' appears to go further down the more straightforward route that 'Tough Love' took, sounding considerably mellower compared to their older material, with slow groovy riffs that wouldn't sound out of place on the last Queens Of The Stone Age album '.Like Clockwork'. Tom Hudson's vocals seem to have calmed down too, with him hypnotically pulling you in as opposed to screaming himself hoarse, like he would've done on PABH's debut. This less frantic sound works really well for the band and, despite the changes, this still feels like Pulled Apart By Horses thanks to the subtle jinks here and there, such as the space-like sound effect that halts the rest of the song about two minutes in. 

A great song that shows a new side to the band and sees them on the next logical step of their evolution. If the rest of 'Blood' is this good, we're all in for something special.
