Insect Heroes' debut album Apocalypso is finally unleashed upon the cosmos - own it now on sumptuous 12" vinyl (with CD + limited edition postcard artwork) or on CD (with limited edition postcard artwork) via the Lost Map webshop. If you'd like to try before you buy, Apocalypso is streaming for one week only on WOW247, where you can also read an interview with Insect Hero George.
