Born into a musical family, Lee Vincent played guitar at school and it wasn’t until he saw footage of the Beastie Boys playing ‘Sabotage’ live at Glastonbury in 1994 that he felt a sudden and overwhelming compulsion to play drums. He saved up money from a summer washing-up job to buy an old Beverley kit which served him well through those first years of playing. So with a new (albeit old) drum kit Lee began the task of teaching himself drums, this was by playing along to manner of all rock and metal bands, he never took any formal lessons.
A number of bands followed but it wasn’t until Year 2007 that Lee, with three virtual strangers at the time, got together and ‘Pulled Apart By Horses’ were born. They released their debut self-titled album ‘Pulled Apart By Horses’ on 21 June 2010 after which they were personally invited by Muse to support them on their UK tour. Their second album, Tough Love, was released earlier this year.
Catch Pulled Apart By Horses live throughout Europe this summer where they’ll be playing all the major festivals, including Isle of Wight Festival, T In The Park, Pukkelpop and the Reading and Leeds Festival.
