After spending a few months in the studio, melodic death metalers THE AGONIST are ready to hit the road with KAMELOT, ALESTORM, and BLACKGUARD on their imminent North American trek. Unfortunately, lead-guitarist Danny Marino will be unable to join the band on tour, but THE AGONIST will be bringing their friend and ex-THE CATALYST guitarist Justin Deguire to handle rhythm guitar duties while Paco takes over lead guitar in his stead.
For fans that have been patiently waiting for new material from THE AGONIST, this tour will be the first opportunity to get your hands on the band’s latest release! Their brand-new “The Escape” EP will be sold exclusively on the road and online at CM Distro for the duration of the tour, and it features two songs from their upcoming full-length album: “Lonely Solipsist” and “The Escape”. The only way to get your hands on a physical copy of this limited edition EP is to catch the band on their run with KAMELOT or to order via CM Distro. The EP will also be available in a digital format after the tour-click here to see the album artwork!
Mixed by Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILITY, SUICIDE SILENCE), ” The Escape” EP will be fans’ first taste of what’s to come from THE AGONIST’s upcoming full-length album. Already tracked and currently being mixed, the album is slated for an early 2012 release via Century Media Records, so stay tuned for more new material from THE AGONIST coming soon!
