Can­ter­bury-in­spired prog­gers team up Andy Til­li­son and Da­manek’s Marek Arnold on lat­est.

Prog - - Intro -

Ger­man band Argos have signed to Bad Ele­phant for the re­lease of Uniden­ti­fied Dy­ing Ob­jects, out on July 20. But de­spite the ti­tle, vo­cal­ist and co-founder Robert Go­zon says there’s more than neg­a­tiv­ity to be heard on the fol­low-up to 2015’s A Sea­sonal Af­fair.

“It’s in the vein of the al­bums that we’ve done be­fore, but it’s dif­fer­ent because we have the new key­board player, Thilo Brauss,” Go­zon tells Prog. “We were look­ing for more of a live sound, and you can hear that.”

He name checks open­ing track The Hunter’s Last Stand as a good ex­am­ple of the al­bum’s wares. “It has the shift in time sig­na­ture, the long in­tro, slowly build­ing up to a cli­max. And it has Andy Til­li­son from The Tan­gent on it.”

Go­zon adds that the sci-fi theme was in­spired by au­thor Philip K Dick: “The ti­tle sounds rather neg­a­tive but there are pos­i­tive tracks on the al­bum along with some darker things.”
