Originally formed in Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, England in 1991 Agincourt are a Heavy Metal band heavily influenced by the New Wave of BritishHeavy Metal (NWOBHM) that emerged in the early Eighties.

The band first came to prominence in the early Nineties. They had two self-released EP'sand recorded a session for BBC Radio 1, at their famous Maida Vale Studios in London. At this time the band was receiving substantial airplay at local, national and international level, along with video appearances on national TV, as well as performing live shows at prime venues.

Just as Agincourt were getting into their stride and starting to get noticed, the Grunge scene engulfed traditional Metal, killing off shows such as Noisy Mothers and the Friday Rock Show with it. Inevitably in 1997 the band split up and went their separate ways.

Eleven years later the band was revived by vocalist and guitarist Richard E Toy, bassist Russ Weaver and guitarist Frank Miracco along with former Benediction and Scarab drummer Paul Brookes. It seemed the right time and this was confirmed as Agincourt songs were once again being played on the BBC. Frank decided to leave the band in 2008 and was replaced by guitarist Paul Anderson.

In 2009 the band started work on their first album 'Angels Of Mons' at Sable Rose Studios with producer Andy Faulkner. The mixing of the album was finished by Alex Cooper at Arkham Studios, Birmingham in November 2010.

Steve Riley (also formerly of Scarab) replaced Paul Brookes in 2010 completing the current line up.

'Angels Of Mons' was released on the band's own label Agincourt Music on 1st March 2011, released in Japan on 20th the July 2011 on the Spirit record label (a subsidiary of Spiritual Beast) and will be released on limited edition gold vinyl record by German record label High Roller on 16th November.

Agincourt will play at the Hard Rock Hell festival in Wales on 3rd December 2011 which will be headlined by former Kiss guitarist Ace Frehley. The event also features Magnum, Wolfsbane, Blackstone Cherry, Therapy? and many other top-draw rock and Metal acts.
