The Agonist Posts “Take Me To Church” Cover Video

The Agonist released latest album and Napalm Records debut “Five” this past September. The record features The Agonist’s own special take on the chart topping Hozier single “Take Me To Church” and today the band is pleased to present a video for that song.

Guitarist Danny Marino comments: “It was fun to record a cover of a song that is so different from our material. Even though it is not metal at all, the song itself is very dark and meaningful. That’s why we felt it could be really interesting as a more upbeat Agonist song. I’m happy that we were able to keep some elements while drastically altering others. We’re also really pumped to be getting back out on the road in February with DevilDriver, Death Angel and Winds of Plague.”

The Agonist returns to the road this February, starting February 8th in Santa Ana, CA and running through March 5th in Seattle, WA. A complete list of dates can be found below.
