Fans of the band Life Of Agony and the now very famous Saint Vitus Bar are likely going to lose their s**t at the announcement that the band will be delivering two shows at the club. Check out the poster and the press copy that came along with it. I’ll close out with some additional editorial.
Each night’s set will be unique, with the band diving deep into their catalog to perform tracks never heard before live, along with their staple classics. These performances will also mark the first shows with new drummer Veronica Bellino (Jeff Beck, DMC, Richie Sambora/Orianthi, Carmine Appice/SLAMM).
“I am extremely excited and grateful to play these first two shows in the birthplace of LOA! Being a NY native myself, I can’t wait to share this with friends, family and fans!” -Veronica Bellino
Mina Caputo adds “I’m excited to think that this thing we’re doing is touching so many people in so many cultures. I’m extremely grateful to be sharing that stage again, the most intense stimulating way to hear music, with my brothers Alan and Joey, and of course, our newest member of the band Veronica. Connecting with her is certainly another dream come true for us. I’m so excited to do our thing, with all our soul and all our might.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is some awesome news if you’re any kind of fan of what LOA brings to the table. I’m excited for the band and their new drummer Veronica who’ve I had the pleasure of meeting a number of times over the years. I’m not sure I will be at these shows at Vitus though because truth be told, LOA was never one of “my band”. Sure a ton of my friends have followed them for years but somehow I seemed to miss the boat and never found myself keeping up with them. I might just wait for a full on headlining tour to support as best as possible and will leave the intimate confines of the Saint Vitus Bar to their most ardent of fans. Speaking of those fans what do you folks think about LOA playing in a super intimate space like Vitus? Are you excited for it? Let me know down in the comments below. Maybe you can tell me what I missed out on as its never too late to follow a band no matter what people might say. Don’t waste time waiting on others if you want to be a part of these shows. I am willing to bet that they sell out fast and there is nothing worse than missing a gig because you waited on that one undecided friend. We’ve all been there.
