Originally formed in New Zealand, Agent is a London based rock band. Featuring James Donaldson on vocals and guitar, Daz Carikas on bass, Gerald Gill on guitars, and Dean Gibb on drums, Agent produces accessible, progressive tinged, rock music.

To date, Agent have headlined their own tours and shows, featured at UK and European rock festivals (UK Techfest, HRH Prog, HRH Ibiza), released two full length albums: ‘Expand/Contract’ which was given 5/5 stars and their second album ‘Kingdom of Fear’, which created a buzz in the prog-rock scene in the UK and Europe and helped to earn them a 2014 UK progressive music award nomination.

After relocating to London , Agent quickly became regulars on the live music scene and have shared the stage with numerous international bands including Skindred, Devil Sold His Soul, Black Peaks, InMe, Voyager, and I Am Giant to name a few. Agent subsequently teamed up with engineer/producer Paul Matthews of I Am Giant fame (whose production credits also include Opshop, Blindspott, Stylus, and Six60). With Matthews, Agent began work on their second full length album ‘Kingdom of Fear’ which was released world wide in December 2013. ‘Kingdom of Fear’ was mastered by Tom Coyne (Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, I Am Giant) of Sterling Sound in New York.

Agent have almost finished work on their third album, due for release later in 2017, from which they have already released two singles ‘Death in the Afternoon’ which debuted on the BBC radio 1 Dan P. Carter show and ‘When Gods Collide’ which debuted on the Jonny Doom show on Kerrang! radio. A third single is scheduled for release in the coming months along with UK tour and festival dates.
