The Facebook Announcement:
Dear friends, it’s time to make a very difficult but necessary announcement.

We have decided that The Agonist as a band, has come to an end. Much deliberation and care has been put into making this decision, and unfortunately, given the circumstances, this is the conclusion that makes the most sense for the band and us as individuals.
There are many factors that led to this decision. It is a mix of personal, financial and industry related issues, but in the end the 5 of us are no longer able to agree on a way forward that would benefit The Agonist business as a whole, while respecting each member’s personal lives and wishes.

We want to express our deepest gratitude to the fans for coming out to the shows, buying our merch, and supporting us over the years. Nothing is more satisfying than connecting with our fellow human beings via the gift of music. It is the number one factor that has always driven us- to make you, the listener, feel something. In the end, we know that we’ve accomplished this together.

So last year, I had decided to add the Canadian Juno Awards nominations and winners list to the content being presented over on my lifestyle website “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken”. Since they had a Metal and Rock category, I also decided to offer up an edited post of the winning artists here on PiercingMetal.com – This year I felt that it would be fun to also add those same category rundowns from the nomination process for those readers who might be fans of these artists. I’ve even added the Alternative category in for good measure. Take a look.

Alternative Album of the Year:
PUP, “Morbid Stuff”
Black Mountain, “Destroyer”
Foxwarren, “Foxwarren”
Mac DeMarco, “Here Comes the Cowboy”
Orville Peck, “Pony”
