Turns out that the one new song that got everyone talking after the gig was 'Is There a Ghost'. This super-catchy little ditty was released on the band's myspace a few days ago and it will be the first track (and maybe the first single) on the new album.
This new song is a bit more upbeat than the average BoH tune, and I found myself humming if for days afterwards:
The Horses declared that recording and production for the new album had wrapped at the end of June, and more recently revealed its title (Cease to Begin), cover art (see above), release date (October 9th) and tracklist:
