Agent Fresco release angelic new single
The Monolith staff’s love for Iceland’s Agent Fresco is no secret. Their debut full length A Long Time Listening is a favourite amongst our ranks, and indeed, amongst the wider UK tech/prog community that has adopted them with gusto – and with an appearance at the scene’s event – UK Tech Metal Fest – on the cards this summer, they’re sure to make even more fans soon enough.
The wait for their second album has been long. A Long Time Listening has become a sort of self-referential title; it came out in 2010, and despite a tantalising glimpse of new material with first single “Dark Water“, that track came out over a year ago (although it doesn’t feel like it to me - being addicted to it makes the time fly I guess).
Thankfully we’ve got this new video for “See Hell” – the second single from their upcoming album, which will be titled Destrier – which will have to do for now (for those of you not lucky enough to live in the land of ice and snow).
Both the track and video are pretty compelling. There’s some brilliant visual storytelling going on, and it’s beautifully shot – and the song itself has a fantastic groove to it. Fantastic stuff, all round.
Destrier comes out August 7th, and Agent Fresco will be playing a few shows outside of Iceland to support it alongside Tech Fest, the dates as well as links for tickets are as follows:
11.07 @ UK Tech-Metal Fest, Newark, UK
24.09 @ Privatclub, Berlin, GER
25.09 @ Reeperbahn Festival, Hamburg, GER
26.09 @ Underground, Cologne, GER
