Art Brut discuss new album

By | Published on Tuesday 17 February 2009

Art Brut frontman Eddie Argos has been talking about recording the band’s new album with Pixies frontman Frank Black (aka Black Francis, of course).

Argos told reporters: “We recorded the album in a punk-as-fuck two weeks in Salem, Oregon. I don’t always enjoy the recording process – all that fiddling with guitars and drum sounds waiting for my turn to ‘sing’. This time though, we did it just right. We spent a day getting the sound of the instruments perfect, then with all of us in the same room at the same time, with the amazing Black Francis conducting us, we pressed record, jumped around and played our songs. This is how I always thought albums were made and it’s definitely how we’re doing it from now on!”

‘Art Brut vs Satan’ will be released on 20 Apr via Cooking Vinyl.

Alcoholics Unanimous
DC Comics And Chocolate Milkshake
The Passenger
Am I Normal?
