The Horrors have confirmed three UK festival dates this summer and are finishing up their third album. In the meantime, frontman Faris Badwan is touring with his new project, Cat’s Eyes.

Paired with classically trained Canadian musician Rachel Zeffira, Badwan gets to show a softer side — if still dark and mysterious.
