The Agonist Releases New Song “Remnants in Time”
- Canadian metal band The Agonist unveiled a new song “Remnants in Time” from their upcoming EP “Days Before The World Wept” on September 9, 2021.
The track was written by Daniel Marino, Simon McKay, Chris Kells, Vicky Psarakis and Pascal Jobin.
The song is accompanied by a music video directed by Chris Kells.
“'Remnants in Time' is the first chapter in this story. It marks the final moments of a person's life and the journey that begins right after,” frontwoman Vicky Psarakis said of the song. “We wanted the visuals to strongly reflect the lyrics and the concept behind them, and transforming me into a demon was key in that. I'm a huge fan of horror/sci-fi and makeup transformations, so working with a professional makeup artist and the use of prosthetics was the coolest part for me!”
She continued, “This song — and video — is all about extremes. Angelic and demonic, fragile and strong, delicate and aggressive. It embodies a lot of what THE AGONIST is about.”
- The new EP is set to be released on October 15, 2021 via Napalm Records.
It is their first music since the 2019 album “Orphans”. The EP comprises of 5-track, produced by Christian Donaldson.
She said of the EP, “There's a lot I could say about this EP and its importance to the band, but does it matter? Obviously, this is the part where I tell you these are the best songs we've put out to date. Honestly — it's a journey. You're either gonna reach the end and want to relive it or you're not… and that's okay. Let the music speak for itself.”
