    Nashville, Tennessee rockers A Thousand Horses hit the road this February in support of their self-titled EP out now on DGC/Interscope/Vanhowes Records. The band will support labelmates The Pretty Reckless, fronted by Taylor Momsen, on tour kicking off February 11th in LA and wrapping March 20th in Hartford, CT. It's an odd pairing, but hey, we like eclectic lineups.

    Determined to capture their music in a live setting, straight to tape, with everyone in the same room, the band recorded their EP in six days in Silver Lake, CA with producer Dave Cobb at his home-built 1974 Studios. The result is a five-track introduction to the band's unabashed brand of riff-driven rock and roll.

    "We tracked it all live. Some of the songs on it are from just first or second takes," said singer Michael Hobby. "We used vintage gear. We used things that we like. That's what we wanted to make: a live, raw, real record and when people come to see us play, they'll find out that we didn't give ‘em something that we can't deliver."

    Lead single, title track, and band namesake "A Thousand Horses" also features Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson. Impressive cameo, no?
