THE AGONIST To Release 'Eye Of Providence' In February

Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based melodic death metallers THE AGONIST will release their new album, "Eye Of Providence", on February 24 in North America (one day earlier internationally) via Century Media. The band's first CD with new vocalist Vicky Psarakis was recorded at The Grid studio in their hometown with producer Chris Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY). Vicky joined THE AGONIST as the replacement for Alissa White-Gluz, who left the band to focus on her new gig as the frontwoman of ARCH ENEMY.

Commented THE AGONIST guitarist Danny Marino: "We decided to go with a different medium for the cover art of 'Eye Of Providence'. We went with real photography and objects rather than hand drawn or CG as we have in the past. Deepti Suddul provided the awesome closeup of the human eye. After that, we passed it to Aaron Marsh who took our lyrics and concept to make the amazing cover art and album layout."

"Eye Of Providence" track listing:

01. Gates Of Horn And Ivory
02. My Witness, Your Victim
03. Danse Macabre
04. I Endeavor
05. Faceless Messenger
06. Perpetual Notion
07. A Necessary Evil
08. Architects Hallucinate
09. Disconnect Me
10. The Perfect Embodiment
11. A Gentle Disease
12. Follow The Crossed Line
13. As Above, So Below

THE AGONIST released a two-song digital single on April 29 via Century Media. These tracks were the first to feature Psarakis.

Commented Marino: "Creating this album has been an amazing experience.

"Vicky has breathed new life into the songwriting process.
"The songs on this album represent a culmination of the past 10 years, as well as a new beginning for THE AGONIST.

"We can't thank our fans enough for their ongoing support in this new and exciting chapter of THE AGONIST!"

THE AGONIST's third album, "Prisoners", debuted at No. 19 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

THE AGONIST 2014 is:

Vicky Psarakis - Vocals
Danny Marino - Guitar
Chris Kells - Bass
Simon McKay - Drums
Pascal "Paco" Jobin - Guitar
