DZ Deathrays unveil cover of ‘Lonely This Christmas’

Mud’s festive classic gets an overhaul as part of a split with Pulled Apart By Horses.

DZ Deathrays have shared their contribution to the next Too Pure Singles Club, a reworking of ‘Lonely This Christmas’, originally by Mud. It will be released on a limited edition, hand-numbered 7” and comes backed by Pulled Apart By Horses’ cover of the Slade/Yuletide staple ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’.

This release underlines a year which has seen DZ Deathrays release their second album ‘Black Rat’, and undertaking numerous headline tours - the pair have just completed dates supporting Band Of Skulls around the UK and The Orwells in Europe.

Meanwhile, Pulled Apart By Horses are gearing up to release their ‘Medium Rare’ EP on November 17th before they head out on a UK headline tour in support of third album, ‘Blood’. The dates are as follows.


21 Manchester, Gorilla
22 Glasgow, Stereo
24 Brighton, Haunt/Concorde 2
25 Birmingham, Library
26 Bristol, Fleece
28 London, Heaven

The DZ Deathrays/Pulled Apart By Horses split gets released on December 8th.
