Canada’s most exciting female fronted export, THE AGONIST, are back out on the road trekking across North America with Otep, The Birthday Massacre and Beneath The Sky. The group will be debuting some new material on these dates and be sure to visit www.myspace.com/theagonist now to view their complete tour itinerary.
Alissa White-Gluz (vocals) further comments: “THE AGONIST is back on tour. We all packed our bags and headed ardently into the ‘Blue Hornet’ (Chevy Express) that carries us off to distant states to perform, but unfortunately the tour got off to a rough start. First, we get held back at the border and miss the first week of shows (which hurt us just as much as it hurt you, if not more!), and now as we are only just three shows in, our van dies on us. As soon as we get back to Montreal we are going to scrap this van in the most spectacular way possible (might ask our buddy Bam for advice on that) – it has been the bane of our touring for a long time. Luckily, we have the privilege of touring with some very awesome bands and extremely fun people, Beneath the Sky, The Birthday Massacre and Otep. It’s definitely fun for me to have other girls on the tour, not to mention other Canadians! So far the fans have been incredibly unique and fun to play for and we look forward to the rest of the shows (van permitting). It’s great to hit the West Coast and Southern U.S. again and we are EXTREMELY excited to be hitting Argentina and Chile on August 19 through 22.
“We are also excited to be able to start showcasing some material from the new album. We are now deep into the writing process and we are challenging ourselves once again, even further than we did on Lullabies for the Dormant Mind. We also have a fantastic new addition on this tour, guitarist Paco Jobin, who is also participating in the writing of our upcoming release.
“THE AGONIST is also happy to announce that we are FINALLY playing Europe! Come check out our MySpace page or my fan page (www.facebook.com/AlissaWhiteGluzFans) for dates and so I can answer any questions you may have. We are working hard on some major projects and hope to see you soon.”
