Caligula’s Horse return with Bloom

Caligula’s Horse have confirmed their third album, Bloom, will be released later this year.

The follow-up to 2013’s The Tide, The Thief & River’s End will be released across Europe on October 16 and in the US on October 30 via InsideOut. View the trailer below.

Frontman Jim Grey says: “Bloom is very special to all of us – it’s an album full of colour and life, vibrancy and energy, but one that breathes in and out with a natural ebb and flow.

“It’s exactly what we hoped to achieve with Caligula’s Horse. To us, this album has a life of its own.”

The Australian outfit have also announced an extensive tour starting in their homeland, where they’ll perform alongside TesseracT. They head to Europe later, with four dates in the UK at the end of November.

Further album details will be revealed in due course.
