THE AGONIST released their latest album and Napalm Records debut Five this past September. As the band prepares to head out on the first North American tour in support of Five they have completed work on a lyric video for the song "The Man Who Fell To Earth". The video can be seen below.

"When the news broke this year of David Bowie's death it hit me pretty hard. Especially because of how his last album Blackstar turned into more than just a new record but a swan song of an artist still breaking boundaries even today. I had an instrumental that I knew was outside the box for THE AGONIST and felt I could make this a Bowie dedication. I used a lyric writing method called "cut-ups" that I had heard Bowie himself used. It is when you find books or magazines surrounding the topic you are writing about and cut out individual words, and rearrange them until it starts to form a story. I used album reviews of his last album that were written before it was known he was dying. In the end the result comes out as a eulogy to be read at his funeral. I'm really happy with the dark vibe we achieved in studio with this one", says guitarist Danny Marino of the video.

The AGONIST's tour begins this Friday November 4th in Quebec City, QC and runs through December 3rd in Worcester, MA. A complete list of dates can be found below.

Five is available in various formats and exclusive bundle packages at The Napalm Records Webstore.

Five was produced by Mike Plotnikoff at West Valley Studios. Mike has engineered and produced such artists as Buckcherry, Flyleaf, My Chemical Romance, Apocalyptica, P.O.D, Halestorm, Skillet, Seether, P.O.D. Three Days Grace, Aerosmith, and Kiss.

Maor Appelbaum handled the mastering at Maor Appelbaum Mastering studios. Maor has had the pleasure of mastering recordings for major international acts such as: Faith No More, Yes, Starset, Ill Nino, Dokken, Fates Warning, Sepultura, Yngwie Malmsteen, Armored Saint, Lita Ford, Butcher Babies, and more.
