Life Of Agony Tap Sylvia Massy To Produce New Album “The Sound Of Scars”


Life Of Agony have enlisted Sylvia Massy (Tool, System Of A Down) to produce their new album, “The Sound Of Scars“. Sessions for the effort have been taking place at Studio Divine in Ashland, Oregon with additional recording to follow in the New York area. Massy will also mix the album, which is due out this fall on Napalm Records.

The conceptual effort will continue the story line of the band’s 1993 debut “River Runs Red“. That outing told the tale of a teenager who after enduring a dysfunctional home life and childhood eventually slit his wrists in the bathroom.

Speaking of their new record, the band’s bassist Alan Robert commented:

Sylvia has a deep understanding of what this band is all about and we’ve wanted to work with her for a very, very long time. Especially, since this is a concept album continuing the story of ‘River Runs Red,’ we’re extremely grateful to have her on board to help capture the darkness, raw emotion and heaviness of the new material.”

Massy added:

Life of Agony began boldly over 25 years ago with its hard musical discourse into the human condition, a darkly hued story which continues to evolve today. This is a unique band with a remarkable history of personal discovery – a phoenix tale of flight, fire and resurrection. This month we begin again to record the latest chapter. I am excited to be the witness to the creation of the new Life of Agony album!”
