|Band||LIFE OF AGONY|
|Release Date||Oct 11, 2019|
|Genre||Crossover, Groove Metal|
"The Sound of Scars feels like such a monumental moment in Life of Agony's story. On one hand, we've come full circle, continuing the concept of our 1993 debut River Runs Red, and on the other hand, we've reached new heights with the raw power of the sound and songwriting. We really cannot wait for fans to sink their teeth into this beast and take this emotional journey with us. This record is a monster."
-Alan Robert, Life of Agony
Life Of Agony emerged from the New York music scene in the early '90s with one of the most distinctive sounds in its genre. Best known for its 1993 metal/crossover debut River Runs Red, the band instantly built a die-hard, cult following. For over two decades, the group toured relentlessly all over the world, sharing stages with the biggest names in rock, including Metallica, Black Sabbath, Ozzy Osbourne, Foo Fighters, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers. After the much-praised Ugly (1995), LOA opted for a highly energetic alternative rock approach on Soul Searching Sun (1997) and Broken Valley (2005) – the latter produced by Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date.
This Fall, the Hard rock and crossover metal veterans return with their hard-hitting, emotional concept album The Sound of Scars, that will continue the haunting narrative from the band’s groundbreaking 1993 debut River Runs Red, which Rolling Stone hailed as “One of the greatest metal albums of all time.“
Produced by Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of a Down), whose work has received multiple Grammy Awards and nominations, along wih LOA’s Joey Z (with mixing duties helmed by Massy), have tapped esteemed engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Soundgarden) to master the band's so catchy, personal and heavy record.
In support of their brand new album, Life of Agony featuring vocalist Mina Caputo, guitarist Joey Z, bassist Alan Robert, and drummer Veronica Bellino, will embark on an extensive S.O.S WORLD TOUR starting this Fall, showcasing their incredible live energy all over the globe!
