Following their debut EP, Cumbria alt-rockers ARGUER will release their second EP, Closer via Real Ghost Records on 18th March 2022, available on all major streaming platforms and Bandcamp. The single Teeth is available on 4th March.
Taking influences from bands such as Deftones to The Menzingers, Distant is full of riffs, mood swings and emotions. The band have a huge sound that is fit for basement shows to full arena’s. ARGUER manage to create a sound that would not be out of place at rock, pop-punk or post-hardcore show.
Old friends Shane and Adam started ARGUER as a welcome escape amid the chaos of 2020.
What began as a weekly jam in the practice room has quickly developed into a set of songs that blend a shared love for big riffs, bigger choruses and satisfying vocal hooks.
With a shared passion for the heavy, the melancholy and the occasional unexpected time change, the pair have created an original sound that reflects the myriad of influence that inspires it – from the heavier end of the spectrum (think TOOL, Deftones, Glassjaw, At The Drive In), through pop-punk (The Story So Far, Alkaline Trio, The Menzingers, Paramore) to the more ambient (The Midnight, The 1975, Whitney Houston – seriously).
Catching the attention of independent label Real Ghost Records, debut EP ‘Distant’ was released in 2021 to positive reviews, with all four tracks playlisted by BBC Music Introducing.
With the release of Closer complete and scheduled for release (18th March 2022), the band has confirmed festival dates with Tigers Jaw and others at the annual Bristol Booze Cruise.
