As a first impression on the new album here is the brand new video for the song 'For Anyone Who Hurts':
This band from New Zealand is all about passion, dedication, and showing respect for the traditional hardcore ethics. ANTAGONIST A.D are willing to pay their dues - they actually already did and don't take anything for granted. Hailing from a geographically isolated country, the quintet had to pave its own road since inception, and has seen the worldwide hardcore community since than. Through the years of existence ANTAGONIST A.D have toured South East Asia, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Europe, and North America while playing with the likes of Most Precious Blood, Have Heart, Parkway Drive and Carpathian. In addition, the group released three albums, presenting their fervent conscious lyrics, animal rights messages as well as energetic metallic hardcore in the vein of Disembodied, Arkangel, Until The End, Culture, Morning Again, etc.
"Haunt Me As I Roam" marks ANTAGONIST A.Ds fourth album and debut for LIFEFORCE RECORDS. "Everything I have learnt from the road, from sleeping on floors, from the tight stages, from my life lived within the worldwide hardcore scene is all on this record. The songs are our most dynamic yet and the lyrics our most personal", says vocalist Sam Crocker. Guest appearances by Sam Carter of Architects, Andrew Neufeld of Comeback Kid, JJ Peters of Deez Nuts, and Ahren Stringer of The Amity Affliction prove the anchorage of ANTAGONIST A.D within the hardcore community. "while the songs speak for themselves; represent pure and sincere metallic hardcore. Listeners will understand the intuitional, yet thoughtful approach of "Haunt Me As I Roam" without the least delay.
"Haunt Me As I Roam" out April 13, 2015.
