Strange House is the debut album by The Horrors. It entered the UK album charts at No. 37. The band announced the title via a MySpace bulletin on 11 January 2007. It was released on 5 March 2007 on Loog Records. Several alternative titles for the album were considered, including Through Wax Seals and Padlocks, a line taken from their song "Gloves". The album consists mostly of previously released material, however several of these tracks were re-recorded or remixed.
A special edition including a DVD in a gatefold digipack was also released, which contained three music videos ("Sheena is a Parasite", "Count in Fives", and "Gloves"), three live performances (one full-length and two short sets), an interview, and a photo gallery.
The album subtitle, "Psychotic Sounds for Freaks and Weirdos", was created by two fans from the official Horrors forum. The band's lead singer, Faris Badwan asked fans on the forum to suggest a name for their then yet-to-be-released album, before the title was finalised. The tag line "Psychotic Sounds for Freaks and Weirdos" was not only a subtitle to the album, but was used on all promotional material for Strange House. It is considered that Strange House is named after The Attack's song of the same name.
