The Agony Scene has released a music video for the song “The Ascent and Decline.” The track is taken from their new album Tormentor, which was released last Friday (20th) via Outerloop Records.

The band commented about the tune:

“’Tormentor’ is a pissed off and unrelenting record that is a product of the world we live in. The lyrics address all of the subjects one should avoid at a party [like] religion, politics, and various personal demons. ‘The Ascent and Decline,’ lyrically, is about watching as people abandon a belief system that they built their lives and careers upon in order to catch a ride on the next train, diving headfirst into a cult of personality. [It’s] effectively selling one’s voice to be on the winning team.”

The group are currently touring on the annual Summer Slaughter tour with Between the Buried and Me, Born of Osiris, Veil of Maya, and more. Check out the remaining tour dates here.
