Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based melodic death metallers the Agonist have released their first group photo featuring new vocalist Vicky Psarakis. The band tapped acclaimed photographer Von Wong to bring its new single, "Disconnect Me," to life.

The Agonist guitarist Danny Marino says (via Blabbermouth): "After working with Von Wong on our 'Prisoners' photo shoot, we knew he was the only one that could realize our vision for 'Disconnect Me'. It was an 18-hour shoot, but at the end of the day it was more than we could have hoped for."

The official lyric video for "Disconnect Me" can be seen below.

The Agonist last week announced the addition of Vicky Psarakis to the group's ranks. Vicky joined the band as the replacement for Alissa White-Gluz, who left the band to focus on her new gig as the frontwoman of Arch Enemy.

Commented the Agonist in a statement: "We announce that after three albums and countless tours, we officially part ways with vocalist Alissa White-Gluz. We wish Alissa all the best with Arch Enemy and her future endeavors.

"It is the beginning of a new and exciting chapter for THE AGONIST! We are thrilled to announce the newest addition to the THE AGONIST family. Please give a warm welcome to very talented vocalist Vicky Psarakis!"

The Agonist's third album, "Prisoners", debuted at No. 19 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of the Billboard 200

    The photo is kind of odd but dang she looks good. She sounds good as well. Right on par with Alissa
    WTF is with that photo? Haha good for them. Although not a fan of Alissa going to arch enemy...
    I'm gonna miss Alissa, I hope the Agonist will still sound like the Agonist with Vicky, the new song is good, but, as expected a little different.
