Pulled Apart by Horses are an alternative rock band from Leeds, England. They formed in early 2008 after each member's previous bands became defunct. They released various singles on independent and D.I.Y record labels between 2008 to 2009 before eventually being signed by Transgressive Records who released their debut self-titled album Pulled Apart by Horses on 21 June 2010. After a one month break from touring in August 2011, the band went into Monnow Valley Studio in Wales to record with the well renowned Foo Fighters & Pixies record producer Gil Norton, and their second album Tough Love was released to critical acclaim on 20 January 2012. In September 2014 the band's 3rd album Blood became their first top 40, entering the charts at 38.
