HORSE the Band

California "nintendocore" band HORSE the Band have mostly been on hiatus since 2009, the year they released their most recent album Desperate Living (via Vagrant), but the band are getting back in action for a full US tour this year. HORSE the Band mixed metal and hardcore with synthesizers, not unlike Genghis Tron, and with lyrics about little android men with scissors on their heads, they had a sense of humor too.

Their newly-announced tour kicks off in NYC on August 9 at The Marlin Room at Webster Hall and also hits Long Island for a show on August 11 at Amityville Music Hall. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale today (7/11) at 10 AM, and tickets for the LI show are on sale now.

All dates are listed, with streams from their 2003 fan-favorite LP R. Borlax and their newest LP too, below...

I would much rather see KICKBALL KATY'S TITS the Band, but alas ... I suppose these chumps will have to do.

nintendocore sounds like the worst genre ever to grace this blog. Folks are really scrapping the bottom of the barrel these days.

What an awful, shitty sounding band. Thanks for reminding me that they still are at it.

Brooklyn vegan comments are 99% negative ALL the time, so lame... To the comment about this being an average "white" band/sound of Brooklyn 2014... please give examples of bands you feel are not average and thus awesome to you, please
