Life Of Agony Set To Kick Off North American Tour
Following a killer European tour, hard-rock and crossover metal veterans Life Of Agony have returned to tour North America for a quick run of shows in December. The group will be joined by fellow New York metal renegades Despyre. The tour kicks off December 11th in New Bedford, MA and wraps on December 21st in Sayreville, NJ.
Life Of Agony will be touring in support of their sixth studio album, ‘The Sound of Scars’, which was released on October 11th via Napalm Records and currently sits at #4 on Metal Underground’s Top 5 Albums of the Year and at #15 on Wall Of Sound’s Top 20 Albums of 2019. The album’s story picks up where their legendary debut record, ‘River Runs Red’, left off.
The two 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 Scars’ feels like such a monumental moment in Life Of Agony’s story,“ bassist Alan Robert says. “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.”
