ARGUS Announce New Album – Fields of Fire – Coming September 8

After a four-year break between studio albums, traditional/doom metal band ARGUS is back with From Fields Of Fire, set for a September 8 release via Cruz Del Sur Music. It will be the first album to feature guitarist/producer Dave Watson and bassist John Campbell, who join long-time members Balich, Jason Mucio (guitars) and Kevin Latchaw (drums). Recorded throughout various points in 2016 and 2017 at Tonic Studios in Pittsburgh with Watson manning the production board, From Fields Of Fire also finds Argus once again teaming up with visual artist Brad Moore for the album’s eye-catching cover art.

“If you had told me in 2013 that it would be four years until the next album, I would’ve been incredulous, but sometimes that sort of thing happens,” says Balich. “We didn’t want to rush the material. Because ARGUS is really a labor of love for us, it will always be that we release music when we are ready and not a second sooner.” “We hope the fans we have like it as much as we do and that it will have some meaning to them,” concludes Balich. “It’s kind of a waste of energy to concern ourselves much with how well it sells or is received by critics… Of course we want it to sell well and for it to be well-reviewed, but we are very realistic about the ways of the music business for a band like ARGUS and short of throwing away our jobs or selling our souls, it’s a tough road for a band like ARGUS to make some headway. We’re cool with that. Our goal is to create music with people we enjoy being in a band with. Our goal is to keep clawing for more ears to listen, more faces to be in the crowds at our shows…those are things we hope will happen.”
