New Life Of Agony Documentary “The Sound Of Scars” To Premiere In April

Life Of Agony have announced that their new documentary, “The Sound Of Scars,” will officially premiere next month. Fans will be able to watch the director’s cut of the film during a two-week virtual screening event, which will launch on April 16. More details can be found at soundsofscars.com.

Director Leigh Brooks (“Terrorvision: Wired Up and Scary”) commented:

“This isn’t a typical music documentary. It’s as personal as it gets. 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 make their music so vital and relevant.”

Vocalist Mina Caputo continued:

“We’ve never avoided tough conversations and we don’t pretend to have all the answers. 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.”

Guitarist Joey Zampella added:

“We’ve completely ripped our deepest selves open for this film. The audience and our fan base will completely understand the mold we were broken from, and what this journey means to us.”

The following was also said in a press release:

”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.

Through the success of their groundbreaking 1993 debut ‘River Runs Red‘, hailed by Rolling Stone as ‘One of the Greatest Metal Albums of All Time’, they channeled their cumulative life stories into a soundtrack for a broken generation. At the time, that newfound fame allowed them to escape the tragedies of their pasts, but in the wake of their accomplishments, unforeseen obstacles arose.

The 90-minute film also takes a deep dive into lead vocalist Mina Caputo’s gender transition.”

Life Of Agony Premiere “Black Heart” Video

Life Of Agony have premiered a new video for their new song “Black Heart.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Sound Of Scars,” which will be released on October 11. That effort will continue the storyline from the band’s 1993 debut album “River Runs Red.“

Life Of Agony Premiere “Lay Down” Music Video

Life Of Agony have premiered a new video for their new song “Lay Down.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Sound Of Scars,” which will be released on October 11. That effort will continue the storyline from the band’s 1993 debut album “River Runs Red.“

Bassist Alan Robert commented:

“It’s an anthem for survivors. We’ve all been through situations in our lives where everything seems completely hopeless. ‘Lay Down‘ is about believing in yourself when no one else will. Times when you really have to dig down deep to find that that last ounce of strength to keep on going.”

It’s worth noting that the clip was filmed at White Hill Mansion in Fieldsboro, NJ, which is said to be haunted. Robert added the following about that:

“You could absolutely feel the spirits in those rooms. Especially in the basement where we heard that a murder took place.”

Life Of Agony Premiere “Scars” Music Video

Life Of Agony have premiered a new video for their new song “Scars.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Sound Of Scars,” which will be released on October 11. That effort will continue the storyline from the band’s 1993 debut album “River Runs Red.“

Guitarist Joey Z said the following about the new record:

“By far, this is the best Life Of Agony record you’ve heard in years. We really went back to our roots on this one and tapped into the mindset we had when we first started the band.”

Bassist Alan Robert also added the following about the video:

“We decided to perform right in the middle of the pit to capture what it’s really like to be at a Life Of Agony show. It was a sweaty whirlwind of raw emotion and non-stop energy… something I’ll never forget. And to drive home the message of the song even further, we decided to include a handful of fan-submitted LOA tattoo images in there, too.

Literally hundreds of them have been pouring in from fans all over the world and they looked so incredible, we had to use them. It just goes to show how deeply connected we all are through this music, both on an emotional and on a personal level.”
