British five-piece The Horrors have announced their fifth album, the fittingly titled V. It’s due out September 22 via Wolftone/Caroline and includes the recently released single “Machine.” Below are the tracklist and cover art, followed by “Machine” again and the band’s U.K. tour dates (U.S. dates are promised soon).

Paul Epworth (London Grammar, Florence and the Machine, Bloc Party, Adele) produced V at the Church Studios, in North London. It’s the follow-up to 2014’s Luminous.

A press release promises that the album is diverse and that the band refuses “to stand still.” As lead singer Faris Badwan puts it in the press release: “It is a risk. But life isn’t much fun without risk. It’s the antithesis of being creative if you know what you’re going to be doing every time.”

Keyboardist Tom Cowan adds in the press release: “It’s natural, if you do see yourself as an artist, to progress and not play it safe. Bowie pre-empted the modern condition of not being able to stay in one place for very long, and I get frustrated with bands who stay still. Because then it does become a career.”

Bassist Rhys Webb also had this to say: “When we started, we had a very clear idea of what we wanted to do, which was to make as furious a noise as possible, a fast and violent racket. But even though we started with this punky garage sound there was always this real spirit of wanting to experiment and explore.”
