After a seminal Dot To Dot Festival performance the band are back for a headline show at The Rescue Rooms. Their latest record 'Tough Love' has seen them go from strength to strength.

Hard-living, hard-rocking Leeds quartet Pulled Apart By Horses are announcing their biggest UK tour to date. Rolling out during November it will include their largest London headline show so far at the HMV Forum.

"We can't wait to get out on tour again," says guitarist James Brown. "It's a sweet run of dates across the UK and finishes with a long overdue homecoming show in Leeds. We can't wait! This is going to be the shit!"

It's been an incredible year for the band. Their second album 'Tough Love' (Transgressive Records) was critically-acclaimed across the board ("Rocks like f*'ll be revisiting for years to come" said the NME. "Effortlessly thrilling," said the Observer.) and stages across the UK were regularly laid to waste, climaxing in an exhilarating performance at the Electric Ballroom back in February.

The band will also be releasing the single 'Bromance Ain't Dead' on July 23rd, an awesome slice of driving rock action from the 'Tough Love' album that looks certain to continue the band's strong support at the likes of Radio One, 6 Music and XFM etc.
