THE AGONIST Debut Video For “The Moment”

WINTERSUN - The Forest Seasons

THE AGONIST will release their new album and Napalm records debut Five on September 30th.  Today the band has dropped the first official video from Five, for the song “The Moment”.  Watch it HERE.

Frontwoman Vicky Psarakis spoke about the making of the video:

“The Moment’ was probably the most exciting and demanding video I’ve had to shoot so far. Chris (bassist / FTB Visuals director) came up to me with the idea to create a “storyline” with a close up of just my face singing the lyrics underwater. And we achieved it by building a box with a plexiglas panel that fit my head, while the rest of my body was standing and perfectly dry. I guess you could say it was scary and awkward to have just your head submerged underwater and a bit dangerous to have to perform the entire song in that position, but honestly, I wouldn’t mind doing the whole thing all over again!”

A lyric video for the first song released “The Chain” can be seen

HERE.

Pre-orders for Five, in various formats and exclusive bundle packages are available now 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.
