Montreal Canada's THE AGONIST are pleased to announce they have signed a worldwide deal with Napalm Records.
Guitarist Danny Marino on signing with Napalm Records:
"We are thrilled to start the next chapter of THE AGONIST with Napalm Records! Since recording Eye of Providence we have been exploding with creativity and are set to record our best record to date. We've been working non-stop on the material on and off the road and now after four albums we have really found ourselves. Vicky and I seem to operate on a hive mind where we know exactly what the other is going for in the writing before it happens. It can actually be freaky sometimes. We are also very excited to be recording this album with Mike Plotnikoff. His experience and input will really help take our sound to a new level."
Napalm Records A&R Demetri Benoist said about the signing of THE AGONIST: "We are very excited to be working with THE AGONIST, this is a new chapter. THE AGONIST are poised to take it to the next level. Getting them in the studio to work with Mike Plotnikoff was a no brainer. Mike is going to push the envelope and help bring out their best. Napalm Records is committed to making the new album their most successful."
The band is currently in the studio with producer Mike Plotnikoff to record their new album shortly. Plotnikoff produced, engineered, and mixed Buckcherry's very successful "15" record, Otep, Like A Storm, Escape the Fate, Halestorm, Drowning Pool, Theory of a Deadman, 3 Doors Down, Black Stone Cherry, Fear Factory, Flyleaf, Skillet. P.O.D. and Like A Storm.
