Brooklyn metallers Life of Agony have shared (via Billboard) a brand new track / music video titled “Scars,” which appears on their just announced new LP dubbed The Sound of Scars (out 10/11). Stream below.
Here’s complete info via the official announcement:
On October 12th 1993, Life of Agony’s iconic debut “River Runs Red” was released. Hailed by Rolling Stone as “one of the greatest metal records of all time”, “River Runs Red” was an emotional concept album that focused on a troubled teenager’s inability to cope with what seemed to be the worst week of his life. The album connected to a broken generation in a visceral way through its cathartic message and hard-hitting approach, and the band developed a cult-following in the process.
Twenty-six years later, practically to the day, Life of Agony will continue the story of “River Runs Red” with “The Sound Of Scars,” acting as a “chapter two” to their groundbreaking album. On October 11th 2019, the band comes full-circle and picks up exactly where their debut left off, revealing just what happened to the troubled boy through intense audio scenes.
In addition, LoA will embark on their ‘S.O.S. World Tour’ starting in England this October with monster metaller Doyle (Misfits) and Evolution Empire supporting. Local area stops on the run include Rochester, NY at Montage Music Hall on December 19, and Sayreville, NJ at Starland Ballroom on December 21.
