For over a decade, English rockers The Horrors have grown in both sound and popularity as they've moved from performing intimate basement club gigs to booking massive stadiums. Now touring with the likes of mega-giants Depeche Mode, the Essex-originated quintet continues to evolve and impress, with their albums charting consistently on British Top 10 lists. They've just released their fifth effort, V (pronounced "vee"), and it might just be the band's best and most transformative record yet.
Stepping into the studio with one of pop's biggest producers, Paul Epworth — known for his work with Adele, Lorde, and Rihanna — might seem like a calculated move towards growing in popularity.

The result is a masterstroke for both band and producer.
ARTISTdirect's Christopher Friedmann caught up with bassist Rhys Webb, who had just wolfed down a cheeseburger hoping the grease would soak up last night's hangover. They discussed the band's new album, its surrounding recording sessions, and how it all came together.
