http://www.guitarworld.com/exclusive-agonist-premiere-new-single-ideomotor

Produced by Christian Donaldson (CRYPTOPSY) and mixed by Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILLITY, SUICIDE SILENCE), Prisoners picks right up where 2009's Lullabies for the Dormant Mind left off, with soaring melodies over complex metal passages that fans of thinking-man's metal can appreciate. Throughout their North American tour with KITTIE (which kicks-off today!), THE AGONIST will be selling digital download cards that feature two tracks from Prisoners : "Ideomotor" and the previously limited edition EP-only track "The Escape". These tracks will be available for immediate download, with the remainder of the album available on release date, so be sure to catch the band on the road with the heavy metal maidens in KITTIE. Dates for this trek are below, so check to see when they'll be coming to a city near you!
