A description of the group from ARGONAUTS Facebook page: “The tail end of ’09 saw four gentleman who did time in BURNT BY THE SUN, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and THE POSTMAN SYNDROME and currently play in MUNICIPAL WASTE and EAST OF THE WALL as well, start charting out sea changes. ARGONAUTS have set their own course in heavy music, unconcerned with limitation or agenda. Hold fast.”
