The Agonist announce new album, debut lead single
Official press release: More extreme, more melodic, more exciting and simply larger than life: The Agonist are back. Following their critically acclaimed album Five, released in 2016, the extreme metal juggernaut from Montreal, Canada, has released a first single and announced the first and hotly anticipated details of their brand new record, due out September 20th 2019 on Rodeostar Records. Says vocalist Vicky Psarakis: "When I heard the first instrumentals for 'Orphans' I was a bit shocked and confused. The music was really dark and heavier than anything we've done in previous albums and I wasn't quite sure how I'd be able to match that emotion. But then you know all it took was writing one full song to get the ball rolling and 2-3 months later everything was done! With every new album, we love to experiment and dip our toes into new territory, but there's also a lot of elements here that are reminiscent of the earlier days. You can expect a lot of hard hitting, fast-paced madness and many many blast beats! Vocally, there's a wide range of styles, some of which I tried out for the first time, and the lyrics are mostly inspired from horror stories and real-life tragedies. Events that I felt a lot of people can relate to. 'Orphans' is my third album with The Agonist and I can't wait to show the world what we created! We're excited to finally share the first taste with all of you... Get ready for 'In Vertigo!'"
