Philadelphia, PA USA
Horror Show were a poetic and powerful hardcore band from the streets of Philadelphia.
Their music cried out from the darkest of depths for someone (re: anyone) to listen to their hardcore anthems of sorrow, heartbreak and violence. Unlike many of their hardcore contemporaries, Horror Show truly lived the pain of their songs every day. Deeply rooted in late night quarrels and their city's urban decay, Horror Show were a sign of hope in an otherwise bleak and barren world.
After the release of their debut CD/7"EP, "Our Design", Horror Show toured the east coast U.S. in support of the release. They also played a number of memorable hometown shows and made an appearance at the memorable Deathwish/Bridge 9 Festival in 2003.
In late 2004, Horror Show released their "The Holiday" 7"EP on Deathwish, which came to be their final recordings.
Members of the band remain active in music today.
