The Agonist may have released their latest album Five in 2016, but it’s carrying on strong in 2017 as a new music video for one of the tracks has just been released. “The Raven Eyes” is the song to come off the Napalm Records release, and you can check out the clip on the label’s YouTube Channel. The Agonist guitarist Danny Marino has given a closer look into what’s behind this particular track: “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 getting ready to kick off a Canadian headlining tour in just a couple of weeks, starting things out in their very own hometown of Montreal, Quebec on August 4th – the tour runs for the whole month of August.
