In 2011 Horan created Dead Bronco in the Basque Country, Spain and since then has proudly flown the American roots flag all over Europe.
Dead Bronco first began as a country cow punk band but Horan´s heavy influence of metal kept seeping through like a cancer causing each album to get darker and heavier. In 2019, a new formation came to light ¨The Annunciation¨, a sound we call Black Folk, where Americana Gothic, punk, folk, and black metal are twined together creating a very earthy yet electrical decadent sound with a sincere fury straight from the depths of the Florida swamps but with the essence and respect of the cold and rainy mountains of the north of Spain.
The rebirth was not an easy situation, given that there was a legacy to maintain: The band has released five original albums and a Hank Williams tribute, which were hugely accepted all over Europe and in the US, all this in just over five years into the bands career. DB was considered the most promising band by the BBC Music Video Awards (2013), best rock band PopEye (2015), and the prestigious Rock Villa Madrid (2016), where Horan was also awarded best guitarist. Shortly after the release of ¨Driven by Frustration¨, he wrote ¨The Shepherd¨ (2018) a battle song made for the conservation society ¨Sea Shepherd¨and in 2019 the band was awarded Best Folk album by Mondo Sonoro. The Annunciation reached number two in the charts of Mondo Sonoro (Spain) for best album.
Prophets of many lands, dragging their message of Americana roots through the mud with a heavy influence of punk and metal leaving their mark on every plain like an unstoppable plague. It´s difficult to kill something that´s already dead.
