Nerdist hailed Robert’s debut as being “The World’s Creepiest Adult Coloring Book” and it received critical acclaim in The Wall Street Journal, GQ, and BuzzFeed. The Life of Agony bassist/songwriter follows up his Amazon #1 Best Seller The Beauty of Horror with everyone’s favorite undead girl Ghouliana, as she mischievously attempts to trick budding colorists into unleashing a deadly spell. Try and find the ingredients she’s sprinkled throughout Robert’s intricate pen and ink illustrations before it’s too late!

“I was completely blown away by the overwhelming response to the first book,” Robert says, “the amazing color work fans have been posting online inspired me to get crackin’ on volume two right away! And this time, Ghouliana’s got even more tricks up her sleeve.”
“Alan gave colorists around the world the creeps with his coloring book debut,” says IDW VP of New Product Development, Jerry Bennington. “If you’re not still shaking from the first go round, there’s more gruesome images from his brain splattered onto the page for fans to color until their hair stands on end!”

February 4, 2017 Comments Off on Billboard Premieres Life of Agony’s First Song in Over Twelve Years! New Album “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” Drops April 28th!
It has been 12 years since New York metal act Life of Agony released its last album, 2005’s Broken Valley. That’s a lifetime in the music industry, although in the timeline of Life of Agony, that’s pretty much on schedule. After all, eight years passed between when it released 1997’s Soul Searching Sun and Broken Valley, but nonetheless, fans have wondered if the quartet of singer Mina Caputo, bassist Alan Robert, guitarist Joey Z and drummer Sal Abruscato would ever return to the studio.
They are getting their wish: Life of Agony’s fifth album, A Place Where There’s No More Pain, will be arriving April 28 on Napalm Records.
“We have a long history of connecting to our fans on an emotional level through our words and music, and that’s why I think there’s something really relevant and timeless about the message behind the title track,” adds Robert. “It’s about facing your problems head on in order to find peace within yourself — a topic that really hits home for a lot of our fans struggling with their own demons. The opening line ‘Running away only makes it worse’ couldn’t be more true, because sooner or later those problems will catch up with you, and when they do, you gotta be strong enough to deal with them.”
