The final recording by Agents of Satan has been released on a split 7" with Paranoidfreakout (also from the Bay Area).  The record is released by RSR out of Germany.  Hails to Sven for seeing this release through! We're told it's a one time limited pressing of 500 copies and each band has been sent a small cut of the run. RSR doesn't seem to have a website but there are distros selling copies online.  Agents only has a few copies left so we're giving visitors to this blog a chance to nab a copy via AOS direct.  Email jbslice@gmail.com to see if any are still available.  The final Agents of Satan tracks were laid down after Stinkweed's passing and includes the introduction of TC Bone Locs on guitar.  AOS had brought Bone Locs on board prior to the loss of Stinko to add additional guitar chaos.  Here is footage of the 5 piece lineup playing the final Agents show in October of 2011before Stinkweed died.  In this set there is at least one of the last songs written with this lineup that was never recorded other than the live broadcast on KFJC in November of 2011.  The final recording was engineered, produced, and mixed by Bone Locs in his San Francisco apartment during the summer of 2012.  Three songs were tracked and all of them made it onto this split.  Agents titled their side of the split 'El Presidente' in tribute to Stinkweed, the one and only President of the West Bay Coalition.  Stinko was doing vocals for the Paraniodfreakout tracks on this record. 

RIP Stinko, you are sorely missed by us all.
