As first reported by Ghost Cult, Life Of Agony shared some big news: they have signed a new world wide record deal with Napalm Records and will release a new album, their first since 2005’s Broken Valley. The new album, Place Where There’s No More Pain, will release later in 2016.

Life of Agony place where there's no pain

 

Bassist Alan Robert commented on the occasion:

“I think our fans know that our music comes from a very real place of suffering, from all of us in the band. 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.”

Napalm CEO Thomas Caser, also commented about the signing:

“Life Of Agony is without a doubt one of the most exciting and energetic Rock bands of our times. It is an honour to work with such talent, we are excited to announce their signing to Napalm Records and release the band’s first album after over a decade.”

Life Of Agony Prepares For German Tour, Major Announcement Pending

loa famiglia

In a series of post’s to their social media accounts members ofLife of Agony have touted a major announcement coming soon. The band is preparing for a tour of Germany later this month, followed by UK tour dates in March, with more TBA throughout 2016. The band has launched a new official Facebook account dubbed “Life of Agony Famiglia”. The page had over 2,000 Likes within a few hours of going live. The band is coming off a big 2015, which saw them play sold-out performances in their hometown of Brooklyn and The Starland Ballroom in New Jersey, perform at Grasspop Metal Meeting and more. 2015 was also the 20th anniversary of the bands Ugly album (Roadrunner). It is presently unclear if the “big announcement” is more tour dates, a festival announcement, or another live release. The band has stated several times that while they have enjoyed the reunion shows, they have not been as interested in making a new music. In an interview with Ghost Cult in 2014, bassist Alan Robert remarked about the state of the reunion:

We are taking things a day at a time, a show at a time. We are all in a good place together, but also have other projects. If we do these shows in bits and pieces – they are more special and we all get along, we will want to keep doing more. We’ll see what the future holds.”
