Bursting onto the scene back in the early 90’s Life Of Agony has been out there bringing their unique style of hard rock and metal to the masses – and this year will see the release of their sixth studio album The Sound Of Scars – and advance word is that it’s something special.
Got a new video to give you a little taste of what this new album has in store. Here is Black Heart.
Oct. 11th is when The Sound Of Scars hits – here’s the official line from the record company:
“The Sound of Scars is LIFE OF AGONY’s sixth studio album, and continues the story of their legendary debut, River Runs Red. The albums’ release dates are almost exactly 26 years apart, and follows the events in real time after the troubled teenager attempted to take his own life on River Runs Red. “The Sound of Scarsfeels like such a monumental moment in Life Of Agony‘sstory.“ Bassist Alan Robert said earlier. “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.”
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.”
“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.
Furthermore, LOA are getting ready to continue their S.O.S. World Tour, kicking off this October in England with Doyle (of the Misfits fame) and Evolution Empire supporting!”
