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.”

Alan Robert's KILLOGY Wins 2013 Horror Comic Award!

We are proud to announce that Alan Robert’s KILLOGY, starring Goodfellas’ Frank Vincent, The Ramones’ Marky Ramone, and Heroes’ Brea Grant won the Horror Comic Award for Best Scene of 2013 at ComicMonsters.com. Killogy was up against some stiff competition, including best-selling series Locke & Key and ’68, among many others. To see a full list of award winners, CLICK HERE >

In related news, KILLOGY also came in at #4 on Bloody Disgusting’s 2013 BEST COMICS MINI-SERIES LIST!
“Using the likeness of Brea Grant, Frank Vincent, and Marky Ramone, writer/artist Alan Robert lets loose on the tough-guy dialogue with his three hard-broiled anti-heroes. With an art style all his own, Robert is heavy on the shadows and rich with primary colors. With such striking illustrations and pulpy dialogue, there is no way your eyes can look away from this.” —Bloody Disgusting
