“Bookstores are filled with coloring books for adults, but there’s a huge void for the kind of creepy art that horror fans like me want to color, so I decided to create my own,” Robert explains. “The world needs a book like this to cut through the mandalas! It’s art therapy for the abnormal…and trust me, there are plenty of us.”

Life of Agony’s “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” has been selected by Rolling Stone as being one of the “Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2016”

Life of Agony have surprised fans by revealing plans to release their first new album in over a decade, A Place Where There’s No More Pain (Napalm Records). “I think our fans know that our music comes from a very real place of suffering, from all of us in the band,” says bassist and songwriter Alan Robert, addressing the record’s title. “Many of our fans have told us over the years that sharing our personal struggles has been cathartic for them in healing the pain in their own lives. That uplifting energy we share at the shows, gives us hope that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. And for us and hopefully our fans, that short time when we’re all together is a place where there’s no more pain.”—Alan Robert, Life of Agony

KILLOGY ANIMATED SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT FROM THE EXECUTIVE PRODUCER OF THE BOONDOCKS

May 14, 2014 § Leave a comment

Killogy Animated Series

Award-winning executive producer/writer Rodney Barnes (The Boondocks, Everybody Hates Chris) has joined forces with Robert to develop an animated television series based on Killogy. Barnes and Robert will serve as executive producers on the series, with Barnes penning the screenplay for the pilot episode. Celebrities Frank Vincent, Marky Ramone and Brea Grant, who all appeared in the Killogy graphic novel, will now lend their voices to the show. Producers Chris White (My Super Psycho Sweet 16 franchise) and Jeff Mazzola (Descent) are also on board.

Killogy leverages a unique mix of humor, horror and pop culture to tell the unique tale of a group of murderers who inadvertently unleash an ancient voodoo curse upon New York. “For me, it’s all a bit surreal,” says Robert. “I basically get to mash-up some of my favorite childhood heroes, throw them into these outrageous situations, and sit back and imagine what happens next. The series practically writes itself!”

“I’m happy to see the worlds Alan has created extend into new areas beyond comics,” said Chris Ryall, IDW‘s Chief Creative Office/Editor-in-Chief. “His comic books are so visually intriguing and the characters he’s created so fully formed that they’ll translate really well into animation and other areas. But I’m also glad that he’s still doing more comics, and the Killogy one-shot sounds like a perfectly dark treat for Halloween, too.”

Killogy was nominated for Best Mini-Series at the 2013 Ghastly Awards and picked up a Horror Comic Award for Best Scene from ComicMonsters.com. Bloody Disgusting listed Killogy at #4 on their Top 10 Best Mini-Series of 2013. The Killogy graphic novel was recently licensed out to territories outside of the U.S. and will see a Brazilian release this summer from publisher NFL ZINE. The book will be translated in Portuguese.
