The Horrors released the synth-laden “Something to Remember Me By,” their latest single from their upcoming album V. “Something to Remember Me By” feels nostalgic and that’s not so bad as it wouldn’t be out of a place on an 80’s soundtrack, albeit a soundtrack to a decent film. If it were a crap film with one decent tune, you’d still buy the soundtrack. I would.
V is out September 22 and shows the group at the peak of their powers, exhibiting a freedom and sense of exploration that feels truly liberating. The album was recorded in London with Grammy & Academy Award-winning producer Paul Epworth (fka twigs, Lorde, Rihanna, Adele), who will release V on his label Wolftone / Caroline.
The band has also announced three U.S. tour dates, taking place around the V release date: September 16 in Los Angeles at the SpacelandBlock Party and two intimate shows on September 18 & 19 at Rough Trade NYC.

Greg never learns. He started Tigr Tigr as a replacement to his other blog, Ventvox.com. Ventvox.com ran as a pop culture blog from 2008-2013 and violently crashed on the very sad day of October 17, 2013. Greg's experience with blogging has grown within the past 10 years and Tigr Tigr is constantly evolving! Tigr Tigr has most recently added a both a forum and Tigr Tigr Podcast. Tigr Tigr Podcast can be found on iTunes, Google Play, Soundcloud and wherever good podcasts are located.
