THE AGONIST announce Revolver Magazine’s “Women In Rock” Tour‏

“We are embracing a number of new topics,” admits guitarist Danny Marino with a cryptic smile. “The Agonist still wants to be a voice for change. However, there are many socio-political and personal topics that we haven’t yet covered. We get into some of those on this record.”

Montreal-based five-piece metal outfit THE AGONIST recently released their fifth studio album THE EYE OF PROVIDENCE via Century Media.  This fall they will embark on Revolver Magazine‘s North American “Women In Rock” tour.  Dutch symphonic metal titans EPICA and Swiss folk metallers ELUVEITIE will co-headline the tour and THE AGONIST will support all dates.  (See dates below)

The band recently released a new video for “Danse Macabre” from the album.

THE EYE OF PROVIDENCE, or God’s all-seeing eye, is a piece of religious iconography with origins stemming back to ancient Egypt. But THE AGONIST aren’t going all History Channel on their new album. The lyrical center isn’t about pyramids, the Freemasons, or its appearance on the United States one-dollar bill. As on previous albums, The Agonist are commenting heavily on advances in monitoring technology, particularly as it relates to governments intruding on the private lives of its citizens.

We are embracing a number of new topics,” admits guitarist Danny Marino with a cryptic smile. “The Agonist still wants to be a voice for change. However, there are many socio-political and personal topics that we haven’t yet covered. We get into some of those on this record.”
