The Canadian melodic death metal band, The Agonist, finally decided to share the release date of their upcoming most awaited album, Eye of Providence. It seems that the album will be available starting November 10th and you might want to know that this is the band’s first album with their newest singer, the youTube artist, Vicky Psarakis.
In March this year, the former The Agonist singer, Alissa White-Gluz decide to leave the band in order to become Arch Enemy‘s frontwoman. She also posted the news on her facebook page:
It is not often that you get a phone call from your favorite band asking you to join! I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work with such amazingly talented musicians whom I also consider great friends. I look forward to being able to write and perform at a whole new level now with Arch Enemy! Music is forever, metal is limitless and this is only the beginning!
