Hello it’s been a while, don’t worry we are working on a new album, it should be with you by the end of the year. Before then here are some other things to keep you entertained.

A SPOKEN WORD TOUR!

Eddie press

Eddie is going on a spoken word tour of the UK. Here is a little bit about it…

Pop music, as we all know, can be an uncertain business. Whilst a chosen few achieve their dreams of riches, world travel and mass adoration for many a spot at their local battle of the bands is the limit of their fame.

In October of last year Eddie Argos, world renowned lead singer and songwriter with Art Brut, the London band that have spent the last decade redefining the meaning of stardom, entertained a select audience in London’s Islington with the tale of how he created Art Brut and forever changed the face of popular music. Now the whole of the UK will have the opportunity to hear his tales of a life spent in rock n roll, from playing the vacuum cleaner onstage to lying to people in London about how he could sing like Aretha Franklin. This is his story.

Here are the dates!

Eddie Argos is delighted to be exhibiting his paintings alongside Lee Ranaldo from Sonic Youth’s drawings, at the Show on The Road gallery during SXSW in Austin this year. If you are at the festival you should definitely pop in and buy all the art.

HERE is a little video about the Show on The Road gallery, the visual food truck. They are fucking great.

See you soon! All love Art Brut.
