12/14 Huntington, NY – The Paramount
12/15 Asbury Park, NJ – The Stone Pony

Sick Of It All’s Lou Koller said the following:

“We have a long kinship with our friends in Life of Agony. I remember when Joey Z gave me their demo, and once I heard it I knew they were gonna change things up. And Life of Agony has done just that, both musically and socially, which is the very essence of the sound we both play and love! When they approached us about joining them for these shows we were excited and said yes right away! This is going to be special!”

Life Of Agony’s Mina Caputo also commented:

“One of the first vinyl’s I ever bought at like 17 years old was Sick Of It All‘s ‘Blood, Sweat & No Tears‘. It is basically one of the most prolific, timeless, and adventurous true hardcore albums ever written. Playing together for the first time in 30 years is something we always wanted to do, and something a lot of fans want to see. Just thinking about the combined energies of those two nights leaves me euphorically beside myself. Absolutely honored to share the stage with such a legendary NY band.”

Life Of Agony‘s May 16 show at the Beauty Bar in Las Vegas, NV was cancelled after a Bonanza High School teacher named Leslie McGourty made some terroristic threats. According to, McGourty revealed her plans to friends, who then contacted the authorities. One message said the following: “Imagine knowing exactly the moment you’re going to die. Knowing exactly that your favorite song will be playing. By your favorite band. It’s just too perfect.” Another one also said that she wanted to “poke a lot of holes in a lot of people,” while others mentioned past terror attacks including the horrific Vegas shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival. She went on to say: “I have the means, motive, and brains,” adding that “Vegas will lose its luster after me” and that she “will start a movement. Another me-too movement.
