Speaking of life since 2011’s ‘Brilliant! Tragic!’ Argos said: “I moved to Berlin, I nearly died with Peritonitis. I was in a hospital for a bit. I had a son, I had a relationship that broke up. I wrote a comic, a memoir, a musical, and had a one man show.”
Tweeting the news of the album, Argos wrote: “I can’t wait for you all to hear the album. I wish we could release it tomorrow.”
The band have also announced a show at London’s Boston Music Room on November 7. See more details and grab tickets here.
