This is THE AGONIST's first ever full headlining Canadian tour and the band cannot wait to devastate the nation with their spectacularly brutal live show.
"In almost 10 years of touring THE AGONIST has yet to plot a full Canadian
tour. We get asked all the time by fans and this year we said it's about time eh! Although we have played most Canadian cities at one point or another it was always sporadic and often as a support. We're really happy to finally give a proper headline show to all our Canadian brothers and sisters across the country," says the band.
