Brooklyn hard rock legends Life of Agony have just confirmed a release date for their upcoming 5th LP, A Place Where There’s No More Pain. This is the band’s first album since lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s gender transition, and the first in over a decade after the band’s 4th LP, 2005’s Broken Valley.
The album will be coming out via Napalm Records on April 28th, and the album artwork can be seen along with the track listing. Pre-order options will be made available soon.
“We’re in the final stages of mixing the album with our producer and then we head into mastering sessions with Ted Jensen (Alice in Chains, Machine Head, Deftones) at Sterling Sound, NYC,” said bassist Alan Robert. “This record is a monster and we’re so psyched to finally share it come April. It’s got such an energy to it. Raging guitar riffs, heartfelt lyrics and killer grooves. We definitely turned things up a few notches in 2017 and it feels great. And I gotta say, we’ve never been so focused as a band. Before we even wrote the first note, we all knew what kind of record we wanted to make. You can hear that drive and intensity in the tracks and you can feel the momentum building.”
In support of the record, Life of Agony will be touring throughout the Northeast United States; you can see the full tour schedule below.
Along with the album, the band has also announced the Life of Agony “Calling From the Underground” Unsigned Band Contest. This contest will award the best unsigned band in the tri-state area by being booked to open on one of their upcoming dates. Life of Agony themselves broke into the scene in the early 90’s as an unsigned act, opening for bands like Overkill and Type O Negative, so they want to give that chance to a new up and coming band.
