Antagonist set to enter studio

Official press release: Southern California's Antagonist has completed preproduction for their new album and will enter Buzzbomb Studios in Orange, CA on May 12th, with producer Paul Miner, who has worked on past efforts from Terror, New Found Glory, Thrice, Throwdown, among others. The band will be tracking ten songs for the as-of-yet untitled follow-up to 2008's "Exist." This will be the first recording featuring new members, guitarist Roland Leonard and bassist Nick Reyes. Singer/guitarist Carlos Garcia commented on the forthcoming album: "This will be the first album to feature our newer lineup, so the songwriting will be noticeably different in some areas; nothing too out of left field, but definitely some vibes different from the usual Antagonist sound. But we promise lots of shred, lots of circle pits, and lots of groove. Probably the biggest difference this time around will be the clean singing (or lack thereof). This is a very pissed off album lyrically and thematically, so we thought it would only be proper to NOT include any clean singing this time around. I know some of you won't like that, but it's something we felt would be necessary to hopefully get our point across. "'Exist' had a hopeful message of working together as humans towards a better future. The new album is about the realization that things will always be fucked up, people will always be selfish, and this world is going to end at any minute, and we have nobody to blame but ourselves. People grow older and figure out that life doesn't get any easier and that our own selfishness, carelessness, and ignorance are at the core of our demise. So right now, that's where our heads are at, which will in turn no doubt lead to a much more aggressive and angry album."
