HORSE the band Desperate Vagrants

(Vagrant) HORSE the band have just begun recording for Desperate Living their fourth full-length and first for Vagrant. This week the band took 12 songs into White Buffalo Studios in Los Angeles with producer Noah Shain and plans a mid-summer release for Desperate Living.

"It's great to work with such an adventurous band that has such a strong vision, it makes my job a pleasure," said Shain. "We made the decision to eschew more traditional modern metal production, and go more toward a natural open sound to capture the authentic brutality of the band's live show."

The band also brought Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu into the studio with them. "Horse the Band has asked me to try to help them make a dying robot, an exploding keyboard, a dream laugh and a melted, drastic flute of redemption," said Stewart. "Lucky for you and for me they have the wit and creativity to turn these things into music."

HORSE the band's debut album, R. Borlax was released in 2003 and was followed by The Mechanical Hand in 2005 and A Natural Death in 2007.

The band hopes to wrap up their recording just before their upcoming festival and club dates in the UK and Europe (see all dates below).
