Life Of Agony Biography
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” (Roadrunner Records), named by Rolling Stone as being one of the “100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time”. 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.
LOA went onto release two more studio albums for Roadrunner: “Ugly” (’95) and “Soul Searching Sun” (’97), before signing to major label Sony/Epic Records in 2005 to record “Broken Valley”. In 2017, the group released the highly acclaimed “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” via Napalm Records. Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date.
LIFE OF AGONY’s hard-hitting, emotional concept album The Sound of Scars, will be released October 11th, 2019 on Napalm Records! Produced by Sylvia Massy along wih LOA’s very own Joey Z (with mixing duties helmed by Massy), and mastered by Howie Weinberg. The Sound of Scars continues the haunting narrative from the band’s groundbreaking 1993 debut River Runs Red.
“By far, this is the best Life of Agony record you’ve heard in years,” explains guitarist Joey Z. “We really went back to our roots on this one and tapped into the mindset we had when we first started the band.”
The group recently toured Europe where they filmed a chaotic, high-energy video for lead-off track ‘Scars’ with director Leigh Brooks of Firebelly Films. “We decided to perform right in the middle of the pit to capture what it’s really like to be at a Life Of Agony show,” said bassist Alan Robert. “It was a sweaty whirlwind of raw emotion and non-stop energy… something I’ll never forget. And to drive home the message of the song even further, we decided to include a handful of fan-submitted LOA tattoo images in there, too. Literally hundreds of them have been pouring in from fans all over the world and they looked so incredible, we had to use them. It just goes to show how deeply connected we all are through this music, both on an emotional and on a personal level.”
