Antagonist Acquires New Guitarist

Bay area thrashers Antagonist have issued the following update about acquiring a new guitar player:

"Hey everyone, time for another Antagonist update! We have a lot of stuff to talk about, so get ready...you ready? okay. here we go...

"First off, we'd like to say THANKS to everyone that came out to see us on these last few tours of the Northwestern and Southwestern United States! Special thanks goes out to our buddies in Last House on the Left for putting up with our childish bullshit on the road. Please check them out if you have a chance, they're on our top friends and they will rule your chonies!

"Now that we're back home, we have time to discuss a few very important things, the first one being the addition of a new member to the Antagonist family, our new guitarist and long time friend, Roland Leonard! He's filled in for the last few tours after the departure of our boy Matt Lopez, and he's done a FANTASTIC job. He was originally just a fill-in but he ended up pretty much blowing us away with his guitar playing ability AND his unique songwriting skills. And the fact that he's just a downright cutie pie doesn't hurt either! So next time you're at one of our shows, please welcome him with open arms, like Steve Perry would want it!

"Next on the agenda is our brand new online MERCH STORE!! We've been lagging it HARD on this end, but we've finally gotten around to building ourselves a sweet bigcartel merch empire (not really, but we have some shit for sale). The url for the merch store is Antagonist.bigcartel.com, and there will definitely be a sweet banner on our page that'll directly link you to the store. Right now there's only a few items for sale, including our new album EXIST, but there will be lots of other designs added as the days go by, so keep checking back!

"And finally, we've decided to post another NEW SONG!!!! It's off our latest album "EXIST" (go pick it up if you haven't already!), and it's called "ANGELS." We've been playing it live for the past few months, but now we've decided to post it on our myspace. So PLEASE check it out, and PLEASE tell your friends about it!

"Anyway, that's pretty much all we have for now. We'll have NEW tour dates up in the next few days and like i said, more and more stuff will be added to the online merch store. Keep checking back, thanks so much for the support! peace"
