THE AGONY SCENE have triumphantly returned with their ferocious Century Media debut, Get Damned, produced by Andreas Magnusson (Black Dahlia Murder, Scarlet), which is set for an Oct. 23 release date. The group will soon join up with Suicide Silence, A Life Once Lost and Walls of Jericho for a massive U.S. trek. They are currently in the midst of a U.S. run as direct support to Misery Signals with Emmure, Sky Eats Airplane and Born of Osiris occupying the support slots. Either see the tour section or check out [www.myspace.com/agonyscene](www.myspace.com/agonyscene) for their complete tour itinerary.
Absolutepunk.net has also just posted the bandâ€™s new track, â€œOld Scratch,â€ online. Click the link below to check it out.
Featuring a new drummer (Ryan Folden), a new label home and a renewed perspective, Get Damned is as highly charged and personal a recording as you will hear from THE AGONY SCENE. Brimming with the kind of vitriol that shot their self-titled debut straight through the underground and into the homes of music lovers worldwide, Get Damned is a brisk slap in the face to those who would dare question the momentum of the Tulsa quintet. Itâ€™s easy enough to recycle the same formula, but 2007 finds the band reinventing itself by fully embracing its sharper, more metallic elements, complete with cutting riffs and just enough attitude to give the new album that recognizable charm that has come to define THE AGONY SCENE.
Through touring with the likes of Strapping Young Lad, Himsa and Black Dahlia Murder, the band has developed a killer live show. With a revitalized sound and spanking new record in their arsenal, expect the unexpected when THE AGONY SCENE hits a town near you in support of their best record yet.
