Biography

There are multiple bands called Agent:

1. A melodic hardcore band from Long Island.

Agent play melodic hardcore rooted firmly in the Long Island “sound” but influenced heavily by Lifetime and also exhibiting a major influence from 90’s indie rock bands like Braid Whereas many bands that claim these influences seem to go for the lowest common denominator approach or are just plain boring, Agent write songs that haven’t been repeated 100 times before, with intelligent, introspective, lyrics and impressive hooks to match. The vocals are rough, evoking Hot Water Music and The Replacements. Produced, recorded and mastered by Phil Douglas (Latterman, Small Arms Dealer) the sound is polished and sharp, yet rough-edged enough to be organic and warm.
- Iron Pier Records


2. 80’s Canadian AOR band

Albums :Agent - Agent (1986) and Agent - Evidence(1988)


3. a metal band from New Zealand

Agent emerged onto the New Zealand music scene in early 2003. Combining a mixture of hard rock, metal, and alternative undertones with a twist of funk, Agent has developed a unique sound which bucks any current trends. Agent features Jimi Donaldson (vocals and guitar),Zane Read (drums) and Matt Flower (bass and backing vocals). Agent formed after long time jam buddies Donaldson and Read decided they were ready to take their music out of the practice room and start something more serious. Recruiting original bass player Red Mann, the trio began writing and performing their own take on hard rock/metal. To date Agent has released The Pheng Nom Shakedown EP (2003) from which the title track was released as a single along with a video on C4 and Juice TV.

    I have the 4-song demo, I Wouldn't Trade That, Awake in Their World, and the Polygon split. I read somewhere that they put out a 2-song demo as well; not sure if they're unique songs or not.

    Does anyone have the MP3s from the 2-song demo? Agent is quite possibly my favorite band and I'd do almost anything to hear those songs.

    Yeah I think the recording quality/production is pretty shit... Songs are much better than I gave them credit for at the start though.

    either the production or the rip i downloaded sucks dick but i really like the new tracks. preserved in jars has been stuck in my head all day.

    New tracks sound... different. I dunno if it is the production or what, but they aren't immediately grabbing me like all of their other work. I guess I was just hoping for Awake In Their World part 2...
