Canadian metalcore quintet, The Agonist certainly have people believing in them. That fact is easily evidenced by the sheer quality of the video below. Their upcoming release Five will be released via Napalm Records on September 30, 2016. The release will be their fifth full-length to date and features some of the bands most balanced, aggressive work to date. Pre-orders for Five, in various formats and exclusive bundle packages, are available now at The Napalm Records Webstore.
The band is about to hit the road for an extensive European tour. You can find out more about that tour here. You can connect with the band via their Facebook page, Instagram page or Twitter account. Like what you hear? Well, a lyric video for the first song released “The Chain” can be seen here.
“The Moment’ was probably the most exciting and demanding video I’ve had to shoot so far. Chris (bassist / FTB Visuals director) came up to me with the idea to create a “storyline” with a close up of just my face singing the lyrics underwater. And we achieved it by building a box with a plexiglas panel that fit my head, while the rest of my body was standing and perfectly dry. I guess you could say it was scary and awkward to have just your head submerged underwater and a bit dangerous to have to perform the entire song in that position, but honestly, I wouldn’t mind doing the whole thing all over again!”
