The Raven Age


As THE AGONIST get ready to hit the road, the band has released a video for their song “The Raven Eyes”.  The song is taken from their Napalm Records debut Five, which was released late last year. (Order yours HERE)

Guitarist Danny Marino speaks about the song and video, “Writing this was a departure for Vicky and I but it may have been one of the most rewarding as songwriters. It allowed us to explore sounds and emotions we’ve always wanted to but could never quite get to in a metal setting. Also, working with Igor Khoroshev (Yes) really helped bring out the full depth of Vicky’s piano and string arrangements. The lyrics were originally inspired by stories of the renaissance plague doctors. FTB Visuals was able to take these themes and create a modern world storyline with an equally dark overtone that captured the painful emotions in the song.”

The band is currently preparing for their first ever headline Canadian tour. The tour starts August 4th in Montreal, QC and runs through August 29th in Regina, SK.  A complete list of dates can be found below:
