Fans of psych/shoegaze outfit The Horrors, your wait is over and the countdown has finally begun. Responding to a forum posted by concerned fans on the band’s official site, the band’s frontman, Faris Badwan, has swiftly alleviated speculation regarding the release of the bands new album by replying to the aptly titled post “Album Delayed?” with one very simple yet oh so telling word – “July”.

It was rumoured that release date for the band’s third album and follow-up to 2009’s Primary Colours was going to be delayed following the launch of Badwan’s new band, Cat’s Eyes who are set to release their EP Broken Eyes at the end of this month and a full-length album in April.
