It begins with the source: Lisa Elle, the exterminating angel, the Swedish sonic siren finding five leather-clad rollers, who under her spell all became DARK HORSES - Andy Bang, Bobby Waterson, Dom Keen, Stevie Ingham and Tommy Chain will never be the same.

Through early 2010 the ‘HORSES rode the nation, performing shows with kindred spirits Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Black Mountain and Kasabian, as well as their own bespoke headline nocturne’s. Festivals were taken by storm in the UK and France, including a coveted BBC slot at Glastonbury. This all contributes to the unique audio-visual experience that is the DARK HORSES live ritual.

Next thing we know, DARK HORSES are holed up in Chicago’s mythical Key Club studios, honing the sound and committing it to eternity with Richard Fearless (Death In Vegas) at the helm. Said to be ‘an indelible statement on loneliness and spiritual thirst,’ the record is due for release in late 2011.
