Life Of Agony To Begin Recording New Album In February

Life Of Agony have revealed that they will be hitting the studio in February to begin recording their new album. The effort will be the band’s first with drummer Veronica Bellino.

Guitarist Joseph Zampella (a.k.a. Joey Z) told Michael Nagy from KJAG radio and Jiggy Jag TV the following about the effort [transcribed by Blabbermouth]:

“We’re very excited about this next record we’re writing. This next record is really gonna define LIFE OF AGONY in the next decade — what it means to be LIFE OF AGONY. It’s really gonna set a new standard even for the band.”

He also added the following when asked about the musical direction:

“We really never discuss a direction. We always just write what’s coming out at the moment, and what’s coming out right now is the best LIFE OF AGONY music that’s been around for a long time.”

Bassist Alan Robert commented as well:

“And also the way that we’re going about writing is kind of really getting back to the fun of writing. The last record, basically, there was a 12-year gap between albums, and we kind of got jaded from the music industry for everything that we went through. And now we’re inspired again and having fun writing. It’s kind of like the old days.”

Zampella continued:

“[We’re] sharing ideas again and listening to each other and checking out something someone has or an idea for a song that someone else has. And it’s just really open and fun, and exactly what Alan said — it’s fun again. Making music should be fun. ‘Cause if it’s not, there’s an issue, there’s a problem. And so far, it’s been super. And you’ll hear that in the music. And that’s what I think a lot of people are missing in their music — that organic, fun aspect. You can hear that in people’s music; you hear that in writing.”

Robert added:

“We’ve been on tour all year, on this ‘Rise Of The Underground’, and just so much energy and so much positivity all over the world, I think we take that into the writing.”
