Mark the date of 1st September in your diaries! That’s when Pulled Apart By Horses’ new track ‘Lizard Baby’, and their third album ‘Blood’ will be hitting your ears …
“[Lizard Baby] has all the hallmarks of a future anthem, with a call and response verse and an explosive, unforgettable chorus” – Gigwise
Pulled Apart By Horses have announced details of the next release to be taken from their hotly anticipated third album ‘Blood’. ‘Lizard Baby’, which received it’s premiere on Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record on 8th July, is out on 1st September on the band’s own label, Best of the Best, through Sony Red.
Partly inspired by the birth of the royal baby last summer, you can make your own interpretation as to what that means!
“I guess it vaguely touches on the media & public attention given to people in the lime light and how people can adopt alter egos or change with power” explains Pulled Apart By Horses front man, Tom Hudson. “There’s also a bit of a dig at bands and performers who put on a false show or a contrived act.”

A three minute, hypnotic rock sleaze fest, ‘Lizard Baby’ is the follow up to ‘Hot Squash’ which received amazing responses, spent four weeks on the Radio 1 playlist and caused the NME to proclaim “Pulled Apart By Horses are now a serious rock band.” Of the new track, Q said “this time around they’ve slowed down their schtick to a stoner-rock chug on this snarling gem.” These two teasers from their new album ‘Blood’ demonstrate the new musical and lyrical maturity the band have achieved since their last release.
