The Agonist have released a video teaser for their upcoming fifth album.

The as-yet-untitled record is the follow-up to 2015’s Eye of Providence. No release date has yet been revealed, but it will be issued on Napalm Records.

Guitarist Danny Marino says: “Since recording Eye Of Providence, we have been exploding with creativity and are set to record our best record to date. We’ve been working non-stop on the material on and off the road and now after four albums we have really found ourselves.

“Vocalist Vicky Psarakis and I seem to operate on a hive mind where we know exactly what the other is going for in the writing before it happens. It can actually be freaky sometimes. We are also very excited to be recording this album with Mike Plotnikoff. His experience and input will really help take our sound to a new level.”

Twin Atlantic have released a video for their track No Sleep.

The song is taken from the Scottish band’s upcoming fourth album GLA, set for release on September 9 via Red Bull Records.

Frontman Sam McTrusty says: “It’s a simple video of us in our element. The textures projected behind and onto us were inspired by the album art we made for GLA. This is us. This is our music.”

Papa Roach will headline an event aimed at fighting human trafficking.

They’ll play at Rock For Freedom on July 28 at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood, sponsored by Monster Energy.

Organiser Kevin Estrada says: “Human trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world today — second only to drug activity. This is tragically happening to hundreds of thousands of girls, and boys, every year — some of these girls are as young as seven years old. This isn’t just happening elsewhere in the world, it’s happening right here in our own backyards.”

Tickets are on sale at the official website.
