HORSE THE BAND Signs With VAGRANT RECORDS

Southern California's metaphysical DIY badasses HORSE THE BAND have signed to Vagrant Records. The oft-misunderstood band of horses is currently writing material for their fourth full-length with plans to enter the studio in March. A mid-summer release is expected.

"Finally we can breathe as humans breathe, walk as humans walk," says vocalist Nathan Winneke. "Band as horses band," chimes in drummer Daniel Pouliot. Keyboardist Erik Engstrom comments, "Vagrant Records has been home to so many of our favorite bands. Now (9, 8, and 7 years after I sent them our first, second, and third demos respectively) the label has renewed their holy vows to 'excellence' by signing us."

HORSE THE BAND has been developing their experimental sound through near-constant touring — even booking their own 45-country, three-month world tour. The band will be touring overseas once more to take part in Australia's Soundwave Festival 2009 before they enter the studio and are gearing up to self-release their "Earth Tour" DVD and photo book

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.

HORSE THE BAND is: Nathan Winneke (vocals), David Isen (guitar), Erik Engstrom (keys), and Daniel Pouliot (drums).
