THE AGONIST Drops New Song "In Vertigo", New Album Out In September
The Agonist will release their new album Orphans on September 20 and have announced it with a brand new song and video "In Vertigo". Here's what vocalist Vicky Psarakis had to say about the song, and the album overall.
“When I heard the first instrumentals for Orphans I was a bit shocked and confused. The music was really dark and heavier than anything we’ve done in previous albums and I wasn’t quite sure how I’d be able to match that emotion. But then you know all it took was writing one full song to get the ball rolling and 2-3 months later everything was done!
With every new album, we love to experiment and dip our toes into new territory, but there’s also a lot of elements here that are reminiscent of the earlier days. You can expect a lot of hard hitting, fast-paced madness and many many blast beats! Vocally, there’s a wide range of styles, some of which I tried out for the first time, and the lyrics are mostly inspired from horror stories and real-life tragedies. Events that I felt a lot of people can relate to.
Orphans is my third album with The Agonist and I can’t wait to show the world what we created! We’re excited to finally share the first taste with all of you… Get ready for ‘In Vertigo!‘”
