Hoers has built a reputation for intense, chaotic and surreal live shows including a 2019 appearance at Beat Herder festival, a set at Donkstock in 2018, headline shows in support of Beat:Cancer and the establishment of Hoers’ own “weird cabaret” festival, Hoersfest.

The latest album, “Oh I Don’t Know, Just Horse Stuff, I Guess” features drum and bass beats, raging punk guitars and shout along vocal hooks and was released on Horse Box Records in August 2019, preceded by the singles “Music Is Serious Business” and “#Horseproblems”. #Horseproblems has received airplay on local and national radio, being featured on Tom Robinson’s BBC Music Introducing Mixtape in September 2019 and then again as part of the “best of 2019” show at the end of the year.
