CONGRESS OF ANIMALS RELEASE HOTLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT ALBUM
Fresh off the back of the Strange Caravan national tour, Congress of Animals celebrate the coming together of old friends and new songs with the release of their self-titled, long playing collection of recorded works, ‘Congress of Animals’.
The album features tracks written by Age Pryor, Nigel Collins, Justin Firefly Clarke and Ben Lemi with Bret McKenzie and Deanne Krieg joining the wider ensemble on additional performing and production duties.
