THE AGONIST premiere video for 'Gates of Horns and Ivory' touring Europe in March!


Montreal's THE AGONIST will release their new album “Eye Of Providence” on February 23 in Europe and February 24 in North America via Century Media Records. “Eye Of Providence” is the follow up to THE AGONIST's 2012 album “Prisoners” and will be the debut of new vocalist Vicky Psarakis. The band has just completed the official video for "Gates of Horns and Ivory." 

You can watch it now on the Century Media YouTube channel here: 

Guitarist Danny Marino had this to say about the video: "We had a great time shooting the Gates of Horn and Ivory video with our good friend and long time collaborator David Brodsky. It was great to finally have a video where we get to laugh at ourselves as well! If you've ever met the band you would know were not always as serious as our music may let on. The title and lyrics of Gates of Horn and Ivory were inspired by the ancient Greek text The Odyssey. It is said that within dreams should you see something enter through gates made of horn you can know it to be true in life. If the gates are ivory that it is a deception, and in life you should not trust whatever you saw come through those gates. It's a very interesting concept and I adapted it to things I have witnessed in my life. For the video we decided to use the music industry as the setting for the duality of horn (truth) and ivory (deception)."
