Life of Agony’s very own Mina Caputo has released a new solo album called The Mones. Fans can check out the new record exclusively via Caputo’s Bandcamp. The 14 track album marks Caputo’s solo debut and showcases a wide variety of genres including the hypnotic “Holding Up This Fall,” the acoustic pop opener “California,” and the country-driven “Brand New Skin.”
It follows Life of Agony’s 2019 album The Sound Of Scars via Napalm and was noted as a “chapter two” to Life Of Agony’s debut record, River Runs Red, which came out in 1993. The Sound of Scars spawned a few singles including “Empty Hole,” “Scars” and “Black Heart.” The band was set to hit the road alongside John Doyle earlier this year but they could no longer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. No word yet if the shows are canceled or postponed at a later date.
The band’s previous record, 2017’s A Place Where There’s No More Pain, was the group’s first since their 2011 album and marks the first album with Mina, who was formerly known as Keith Caputo came out as transgender. The album featured singles “World Gone Mad,” “No More Pain.“
