Presenting Life Of Agony’s Only US Date For 2014

Fans of the band Life Of Agony will likely be spinning in place with excitement as the news about the bands sole US appearance for 2014 taking place at the Starland Ballroom this coming September.

Tour - Life Of Agony - 2014

This will mark what amounts to the second reunion of Life Of Agony who seemed to be all about finished as a touring group over the last couple of years. Drummer Sal has his A Pale Horse Named Death group while Alan Robert has been working on comic book releases. Singer Mina has been doing solo gigs while Joey remains active in his studio working on numerous projects. That being said it’s definitely special when a band that is not currently touring decides to make a special one-off appearance and the Starland Ballroom will be the perfect place for this particular show. Personally speaking I’ve never been more than the casual listener to this particular band but I do know plenty of fans out there who felt that this band spoke to them on numerous levels across their lives with their debut “River Runs Red” and its follow-up “Ugly”. I’ve caught them on various tours a couple of times over the years and can attest to their being able to deliver a solid show. This will clearly be one that their fans remember for a long, long time.

Tickets for this special event of a show will go on sale on July 18th at noon and you can purchase one by clicking HERE
