Art Brut have revealed details of their new album, Wham! Bang! Pow! Let’s Rock Out!, due for release November 23rd via Alcopop! Records. The band have also shared a new video for Hospital! which can be viewed below.

The album was produced by Folk musician Jim Moray and features artwork by Berlin-based Pop artist Jim Avignon.

Eddie Argos explains the meaning behind 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.”

The band will also head out on a UK tour in early 2019
