The Horrors to play event at Sussex University

The Horrors

The Horrors will be performing at the University of Sussex as part of their European tour this October.

Hosted by the Students’ Union and promotions company One Inch Badge, the Essex-based rock band will be taking to the stage of the Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts on October 28th.

Former Students’ Union President Annie Pickering was involved in setting the event up, as part of her manifesto pledge to bring more live music to campus.

She said: “Live music is still one of the best entertainments out there and I am very proud to try and continue the legacy of Sussex as a place for live music with The Horrors coming to campus next year.”

Sussex students can buy tickets for the event at an exclusive rate of £13 from 10am on June 30th. Tickets are limited, so students should book early to avoid disappointment.

The band will play songs from their new album, ‘V’, coming out in September this year. The album has been described as “[showing] the group at the peak of their powers, exhibiting a freedom and sense of exploration that feels truly liberating.”

Bassist Rhys Webb said: “When we started, we had a very clear idea of what we wanted to do, which was an excuse to make as furious a noise as possible, a fast and violent racket.

“But even though we started with this punky garage sound, there was always this real spirit of wanting to experiment and explore.”

‘V’, The Horrors’ fifth album, is released in September.
