The Agonist: reveals artwork, track-listing for new album, "Prisoners"; digital single, "Ideomotor", now available on iTunes
Extreme metallers THE AGONIST will finally be unleashing their long-awaited third studio album, Prisoners, on June 4th in Europe and June 5th in North America via Century Media Records! In regards to the album artwork, front-woman Alissa White-Gluz comments: "We wanted to really include a chaotic visual to reflect the chaotic sound of the band, but we also wanted to show that the lyrics on this album are a lot more introverted...The human face was left non-descript on purpose-- it doesn't belong to any particular person, but we could call him the Lonely Solipsist."
The track-listing for Prisoners is below.
1. You're Coming With Me
2. The Escape
3. Predator & Prayer
4. Anxious Darwinians
7. Lonely Solipsist
8. Dead Ocean
9. The Mass Of The Earth
10. Everybody Wants You (dead)
11. Revenge Of The Dadaists

Fans can also enter a Lyric Interpretation Video Contest for the track here and purchase the digital single on iTunes here. The full album is also available for pre-order on CM Distro here in a variety of formats.
