Listen/purchase: A Plague of Knowing- Singles, Splits, and Rarities by Horseback
Horseback are one of those ephemeral one-man projects that flit about from boutique label to micro-indie with an almost defiant hide-and-go-seek mentality. Following a series of splits, 7 “s and split 7 “s the Jenks Miller-led act landed on Hydra Head Records for a 2011 collaboration…
Horseback's 3CD Collection of splits, rarities & singles 'A Plague of Knowing' is available everywhere today on 3CD/Digital!

Horseback // On the Eclipse (preview)
Not a song as such, I just wanted to post this bad-boy to help spread word about Horseback’s forthcoming singles/rarities collection. Horseback are one of my favourite acts, so I’m keen as fuck to hear this collection of all the wierd and hard-to-find material they’ve done so far. Jenks Miller also has a solo record coming, apparently, so I’m fucking psyched for that as well.
Horseback’s new album, ‘A Plague of Knowing,’ collects a half decade’s worth of compilation, vinyl only, demos, live recordings, and previously unreleased material onto a limited edition 3CD set. Pre-orders are now up!
Chapel Hill, NC’s experimental artisan Horseback has premiered a track from the forthcoming singles and rarities collection A Plague of Knowing. The song “On The Eclipse” is currently available for streaming via Cvlt Nation here.

The Dropp Reviews Horseback’s ‘Half Blood’ and Pig Destroyer’s ‘Book Burner’:
"For a metal release that will shock you and throw you more curve balls than you may ever see coming, Horseback have a release just for you."
"By the time you get to the four-minute closer “Permanent Funeral” (which is a “behemoth” track by all Pig Destroyer standards), you may realize that you just witnessed the most terrifying recorded experience of your life yet; and that’s perfectly fine."
