Here's some more about Life of Agony, from their website:
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" with producer Greg Fidelman (Slipknot, Metallica). Life of Agony has sold over one million albums to date.
Last year, LOA released its 5th studio album, titled "A Place Where There's No More Pain". Rolling Stone hailed it as "One of the Most Anticipated Albums of the Year" Life of Agony's "A Place Where There's No More Pain" is available now from Napalm Records. The album was produced by Matt Brown & Life of Agony and mastered by Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Deftones).
On January 22, 2018, Life Of Agony 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 2018 Life of Agony lineup features vocalist Mina Caputo, guitarist Joey Z, bassist Alan Robert, and drummer Veronica Bellino.
LIFE OF AGONY is currently touring on the "Rise of the Underground" Tour 2018, spanning the USA and Europe. The shows began with two sold-out, hometown warm-up gigs April 18th & 19th at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, and will conclude November 2nd as headliners of The Sound of Revolution Festival in Eindhoven, Netherlands.
"With 2018 marking the 25th anniversary of our debut album, we are just so incredibly grateful to our fans for sticking with us all these years and wanted to do something really special for them. We’re breaking out some old fan favorites that we’ve never played before live and hitting cities we haven’t been to in over a decade," says bassist Alan Robert. "You really can’t beat the crazy energy of a packed, sweaty, tiny club, like we used to play back in the day, so we decided to include some very intimate rooms on this tour, along with the bigger venues, to feel that deep emotional connection again with our die-hard fans. It’s gonna be insane."
