As announced, Brooklyn metallers Life of Agony will be hosting a special virtual screening (starting on Friday, April 16th for a limited two-week window) for the Director’s Cut version of their ‘The Sound of Scars’ full-length documentary.
Today, two behind-the-scenes videos for ‘The Sound of Scars’ have been released. The clips, featuring Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and defunct Brooklyn night club L’Amour, can be viewed below.
‘The Sound of Scars’ documentary started two years ago by UK director Leigh Brooks and was filmed across various countries while the band was on and off the road.
“This isn’t a typical music documentary. It’s as personal as it gets.” says Brooks. “I first saw the band live at the London Astoria in 1996. Since then, LOA has become an absolute go to when I felt alone and insecure about myself. This film is an intimate portrait that sheds light on the real life stories that makes their music so vital and relevant.”
A press release adds, “The Sound of Scars utilizes personal archive footage, rare photographs and lost interviews, along with new, never-before-seen conversations with the band and their family members that tells the story of how three friends overcame domestic violence, substance abuse and depression to form one of the most influential bands in its genre.”
“We’ve completely ripped our deepest selves open for this film,” comments guitarist Joey Zampella. “The audience and our fan base will completely understand the mold we were broken from, and what this journey means to us.”
The 90-minute flick also touches on lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s gender transition. “We’ve never avoided tough conversations and we don’t pretend to have all the answers,” states Caputo. “But, this film is a roadmap with many great lessons. It shows a ton of vulnerability… moments of falling downward and others where we rise strong. Enjoy this gift of imperfection. May you find the tools to be braver with this film.”
“Life of Agony fans will get the opportunity to stream a virtual screening of The Sound of Scars Director’s Cut along with other bonus material, including a Q&A discussion with the band and director on the making of the film, moderated by SiriusXM’s Liquid Metal host Shawn The Butcher,” declares the presser regarding the upcoming online screening event.
