Billions Australia and the Laneway Festival present The Horrors Australian Tour 2012.

East London via Southend-On-Sea band 'The Horrors' have come a long way since 2005, when they graced the cover of the NME with eye-linered eyes, big hair, an eff-you attitude and barely a single (the spiky 'Sheena Is A Parasite') to their name. Their live shows were a riot - often literally - but did what rock n roll is supposed to do: energise, excite, divide and polarise. Three records on, they're all grown up and the hype has evolved into almost universal respect. Skying is a wide-ranging, shapeshifting album with an overarching pop sensibility (see: unlikely hit single 'Still Life'). They headlined the Laneway-curated stage at London's Field Day in July and we guarantee that they're as thrilling as ever.

"Engulfing the audience in a wave of bass, guitar, drums and synths at levels of sonic perfection" - One Thirty BPM

"They've become something quite rare: a stadium-worthy band who bring with them a fascination with the heritage of sound (and hence its potentialities)" - The Quietus

"No longer hiding in the shadows, The Horrors are now conducting light and shade like sorcerers’ apprentices" - NME

"And at the El Rey on Thursday night, they cleared their last hurdle -- playing it out with enough muscle and noise to make their ambitions feel not just admirable, but essential" - LA Times
