Marco Argiro

Marco Argiro has made a name for himself internationally in the ultra melodic power-pop band Le Mood, as well as the transatlantic anthemic rock group The Killing Floor. “Ever the quintessential frontman,” (The Broward Palm Beach New Times) Argiro caught the eye and ear of Marky Ramone in 2010. Ramone tapped Argiro to take over as lead vocalist, filling in for the ailing Michael Graves (The Misfits) during the kickoff of Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg European tour. For Argiro, a lifelong Ramones fan, it was a dream come true. The experience inspired Love’s closing track, "Will You Remember Poison Heart?". Ramone has continued to support Argiro and The Killing Floor, personally selecting them as openers for a recent show at The Bell House in Brooklyn.

Argiro can also count Hollywood legend Joel Schumacher among his fans. The director of films such as The Lost Boys, Batman Forever, Phantom of the Opera, A Time to Kill, and St. Elmo’s Fire, Schumacher was also behind the music videos for INXS' “Devil Inside” and Bush's "Letting the Cables Sleep." In 2011, he added The Killing Floor’s “Star Baby” to his impressive resume. The director praised Argiro (who also produced the video) for his “hunger, energy, passion and a fresh new artistic perspective.”

After his solo debut in 2005, Argiro began to release music under the pseudonym “Le Mood.” Splitting his time between Le Mood and The Killing Floor, Argiro also started his own record label, Outright Rock Records. Autumn of 2013 will see the release of the second album under the Marco Argiro name, Love, on that very label.
