Argonauts First Performance at GWAR-BQ 2011 / by Randy Ortiz

This is our first posting for the Argonauts and their first performance as well at this years GWAR-BQ. The video isn't of greatest audio quality so take this as just a sample of what's to come from the band. So far I like what I hear and am going to try to make it to their next NJ show in October at Ask A Punk! in New Brunswick. I know you guys aren't used to much metal here but that is slowly going to change with the inclusion of more genres that will be included soon. This is what Dimitri Minakakis (One of the founding members of The Dillinger Escape Plan) has to say about the new band:

"So, I’ve joined a band and I guess you can say I’m back in the game. Well sort of. We are called Argonauts. Back in March of 2011 John Adubato (formerly of Burnt By the Sun) asked me to “sing” in a project he had cooking up with Dave Witte (Burnt By the Sun, current drummer for Municipal Waste) and Brett Bamberger (East of the Wall, touring bassist for Binary Code). I can’t express how excited I am for this project it’s a different sound from what I’m used to performing but so far it’s coming out perfect."

The videos recorded were from a fan that divided them into a 3 part, check the videos out after the jump!
