LOUD HORIZON featured Cumbrian punks COLT 45 towards the end of last year when they released their second EP ‘Inside The Triangle‘ and since then (obviously not as a direct result of appearing on this blog!) things have just kept on getting better and better for the lads.
In a few days, they will embark upon a nationwide tour under the billing of Big Cheese Presents (they will be joined by Electric River and The Hostiles ) and in celebration they are making their latest single ‘Happiness Is A Dying Art’ available as a free download – see the Soundcloud link below.
“We’re really psyched for the upcoming Big Cheese tour in Feb” says drummer Adam Lewis “The guys at the magazine always give upcoming artists great opportunities to get out and progress, and that’s what this tour is all about – getting in some new people’s faces and hopefully setting the bar for the rest of our 2013. Having Electric River and The Hostiles on board as well guarantees a great line up and a real treat for everyone attending, we can’t wait!”
The video for the new single adopts the same kind of formula as the last – one of showing ‘behind the scenes’ as the band make their way to / from and at various gigs. (The opening shots on this one look very familiar to me!!)
We also need more beer-swilling, melodic punk – hardcore punk, even – bands to criss-cross the country! (Just saying!)
