The record, produced by award winning folk musician Jim Moray, will be out on Alcopop! Records on November 23.
The band have also dropped the video for their brand new single "Hospital!", a stark juxtaposition with the deeply personal track for the band’s larger-than-life front man and huevo-namesake Eddie Argos who, three years ago, found himself dangerously ill in hospital.
“I didn't realise quite how ill I was at the time,” explains Argos, “I was in a German hospital und mein Deutsche is nicht sehr gut. I had a big operation, bigger than they were expecting when they started operating on me, and there were a few complications. They kept me in for nearly a month. It was the most undignified month of my life and although I was very grateful to the surgeons for saving my life and also to the nurses for taking care of me, I despised every fucking minute of time I spent there.
“The only thing that kept me sane was the mantra that eventually became this song. Every single lyric was written and repeated over and over again as I suffered numerous indignities. Songwriting is something I've always used to alleviate stress and on this occasion I really tested it to its limits. What I am most impressed by is that even when I'm at death’s door and pumped full of morphine, staggering around and collapsing all the time, I can still write a comical call-and-response backing vocal to amuse myself.
“I'm very glad not to be in hospital anymore—of course, as this was three years ago, I've broken all the promises I make to myself in this song.”
Check out the track list and the video for "Hospital!" below.

About the song, the band told DIY: “What you hear is the sound of the band focusing and maturing with sound. We wanted the track to sound like paranoia and the lyrics are very much a stream of consciousness that barely sit on the suffocating music. Lyrically, I am commenting on my anxiety, my mental health, how people see me when I’m holding my child and how the music industry will always tie those loops in my mind.”
Take a listen below.
