« Life of Agony’s return is set to blow you away ! » - Kerrang !
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, 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 with producer Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica).
In 2017, LOA released its 5th studio album, titled A Place Where There's No More Pain and on January 2018, the band welcomed new drummer Veronica Bellino into the band, best known for her work with Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Jeff Beck, DMC, Richie Sambora/Orianthi, and Carmine Appice/Slamm. The band then toured the USA and Europe in 2018 with its highly successful “Rise of the Underground Tour 2018”, kicked off with two sold-out, hometown warm-up gigs in Brooklyn and concluded it as headliners of The Sound of Revolution Festival in in Eindhoven, Netherlands, before closing the year with two sold-out co-headlining shows with scene veterans Sick of it All.
Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date. The sound of scars, the band’s brand new album is set to be released this fall!
