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), the band instantly built a diehard 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 on to release two more studio albums for Roadrunner, “Ugly” (1995) and “Soul Searching Sun” (1997), before signing to major label Sony/Epic Records in 2005 to record “Broken Valley” with producer Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date but hasn’t released new material in almost 12 years.
In 2016, LoA signed a deal with Napalm Records to record the group’s fifth studio album, hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the most anticipated albums of the year.” “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” is set for release on April 28; the album is produced by Matt Brown and Life of Agony and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Deftones).
