County metallers The Darkhorse will be celebrating the release of their debut album with a headline gig on Friday night.
The Carcass Of The Sun Will Sleep is out now via Attic Records.

Following Friday’s gig in Rushden, the band play Mosh Against Cancer in Coventry in April, Hop Fest at the Prince of Wales in July and A Day of Rock in the town in November.
