Argent is an English rock band founded in 1969 by Rod Argent after his previous band, The Zombies, broke up. Argent's biggest hit was "Hold Your Head Up" (written by Rod Argent and Chris White). Released as a single in 1972, and taken in a heavily-edited form from the band's album "All Together Now", it was a Top 5 hit in both the US and UK, peaking at #5 in both countries. The original lineup re-united to perform at the High Voltage Festival in Victoria Park, London, in 2011 and did a short five-date tour as follow-up. Read more on Last.fm
