Life Of Agony Reportedly Part Ways With Drummer Sal Abruscato

Sal Abruscato has apparently exited Life Of Agony. The drummer listed himself as a former member of the band on his Twitter and issued the following statement:

“Sometimes you just have to let go and say goodbye to old friends, the past and its ghosts. Move forward, grow up, grab that life preserver and jump off the ship. I have three beautiful daughters and a beautiful wife that love me and that’s what is important.”

Life Of Agony’s Mina Caputo To Perform With Against Me! At 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards

Life Of Agony’s Mina Caputo will be performing with Against Me! during the 2017 Alternative Press Music Awards at the Keybank State Theater in Cleveland, OH on July 17. This will be the first time both transgender singers will share the stage together.


Caputo commented:

“Songwriters like Laura [Jane Grace] demonstrate how internal struggles comprise great American artists. Her artistic impact is obvious to us all. She’s been pioneering in her genre for years now, becoming a vital messenger of artistic truth, a musical raconteur, and an unbelievable humanitarian. I am extremely honored and humbled to share the stage with Laura and Against Me! at the APMAs!

I’m so excited…in a way, it vindicates my own personal struggles, for when another artist asks you to share an important moment in their own career, that’s when you recognize shift is in the air. Also, I can’t think of anyone else who is more deserving for this special Icon award. I am ecstatic for her and all of her personal and musical achievements. She deserves the world.”

Life Of Agony Premiere New Song “World Gone Mad”

Life Of Agony are streaming a new song titled “World Gone Mad,” via Brooklyn Vegan. This song is from their new album “A Place Where There’s No More Pain,” which will be released On April 28.

Alan Robert said the following:

“The message behind ‘World Gone Mad‘ could not be more relevant to what’s going on all over this planet right now. People are more divided than ever, and if we continue to ignore the fact that this world is busting at its seams and just continue to “stick our heads underground,” like the lyrics suggest, we will see a madness in our lifetime like we’ve never experienced before.”
