Arbogast is gearing up for a string of live actions in March and April. The following press release was issued about the impending tour dates:
"Chicago-based Arbogast’s off-kilter but seamless hybrid of extreme musical styles infiltrated the media at the turn of the year by way of a crushing debut album, simply entitled I. The trio’s slamming hooks and percussion are also fueled by sturdy societal and political standpoints.
"Following regional shows in support of the album over recent weeks, and while currently working on new videos to be released in the coming weeks, Arbogast is actively setting up shows in their hometown and abroad. Having just confirmed a new set of dates on the East Coast this Spring, the outfit will take their chaotic, genresmashing tunes to new audiences throughout the Northeastern corner of the country in early April.
"In the meantime new Chicago shows are also confirmed; the band will share the stage with Behold... The Arctopus and Murmur in mid-March, and will also storm The Burlington with Guzzlemug and Arctic Sleep tonight, Thursday, February 28th." More...
Chicago’s Arbogast will release the band's debut album, simply titled "I," on December 4th. "I" will be set loose by Arbogast’s cohorts at New Jersey-based Nefarious Industries, founded by and home to El Drugstore (members of East of the Wall), A Fucking Elephant, and So is the Tongue (members of Kayo Dot). The following press release was issued about the album:
"Arbogast’s boisterous debut tackles a theme on the minds of many: the declining morals of a country where the middle class is being overthrown by the greed of the privileged. The eleven songs harnessed on I were recorded by Andy Nelson (Weekend Nachos) at Bricktop Studios in Pilsen and mastered by Matt DeWine (Where the Moon Came From) at Ukrainian Village’s Pieholden Suite Sound, founded by the late Jay Bennett (Wilco)."
Two tracks from "I" are now available for streaming in the player below. The full album's track listing is as follows: More...
