Agent is a rock band based in London, UK. Originally formed in New Zealand (NZ), the band relocated to London in 2008. 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, 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 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 UK bands including Skindred, Devil Sold His Soul, Black Peaks, InMe, and I Am Giant to name a few. Agent subsequently teamed up with long time friend and 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 released the single ‘Death in the Afternoon’ from their forth coming third album which received airplay on the BBC radio 1 Dan P. Carter show, Kerrang, and Scuzz TV amongst other. ‘Death in the Afternoon’ was recorded and produced by Agent and Paul Matthews and mastered in New York by Tom Coyne.

The band are currently playing shows in the UK and Europe and working on their third album due for release in 2017.
