Stumbling out of Los Angeles, CA, HORSE the band has
been many people's favorite little secret since their inception
in 2000. The godfathers of the sound already coined as "Nintendo-core",
they've built a sizable worldwide fan base just by being creative
and having a slightly demented sense of humor. Deconstructing hardcore
and metal trademarks and soaking them with a sharp tongue and inventive
keyboard leads, HORSE the band has risen to the forefront of eclectic
and extreme hard rock music. When HORSE the band signed with Pluto
Records in early 2003, they finally got to release a debut full-length,
R. Borlax, which was an immediate hit. The media picked up
on the buzz as well and the band found themselves praised in the
pages of some of the top music magazines such as Kerrang, Alternative
Press, Terrorizer, and Rocksound just to name a few.
In the summer of 2004, the band set out on the most ambitious
tour any band, big or small, could hope to accomplish. HORSE THE
WORLD TOUR 2004 included 85 shows in 90 days, spanning 7 countries.
One highlight was a jaw-dropping performance at Hellfest in July,
which was characteristic of the whole tour which turned out to be
a huge success. An offer from Combat Records soon followed, and
HORSE the band seized the opportunity to take things to a new level.
The band found themselves in Seattle recording with producer/engineer
Matt Bayles (Botch, Norma Jean, Mastodon) and produced a huge follow-up
to R. Borlax. The album is called "The Mechanical Hand"
and was recentely released through Combat Records.
Catch HORSE the band on tour everywhere!
