Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and the ban on public assembly of more than 500 by New York State officials, this event has been postponed to a later and as yet undetermined date. Please refer to this calendar and our social networks for the latest rescheduling notices. Stay healthy.
Life Of Agony will incinerate Greenpoint, Brooklyn with sonics when they bring their tour to these parts. They’ll be joined by the mighty Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein and All Hail The Yeti. Get there early for all the music and extra pierogies.
The Press Release:
Following the incredible success of their 2019 European tour together, LIFE OF AGONY and Doyle (featuring the iconic guitarist of the Misfits) will bring their Beast Coast Monsters tour to the U.S. and Australia in 2020. The tour kicks off this March on Friday the 13th in Philadelphia, PA (full dates listed below).
The comradery between these musicians began in the mid-90s when LIFE OF AGONY first toured with the Misfits throughout America. “It was one of the most fun tours I’ve ever done,” says Doyle. “I still workout to Other Side Of The River.” In fact, Doyle would often jump up onstage to perform this LOA fan favorite during their recent European run.

Greetings fellow Geeks, you know the drill and you know where you are right now, well, you should know at this point 🙂 For those just joining the program allow me to welcome you to the PiercingMetal in-depth visual overview of the 2019 New York Comic Con. I’m up to Part Three of the Day Two observations and I am just going to pick up from where I left you in Part Two. The newbies might want to click HERE first so they see all that’s come before this one.
As per usual, I am picking up from where I left off and here we see the lovely Hendo once more dressed in some sort of Psylocke/Playboy Bunny mashup. I stopped by here once more because as you can see there was a Vero booth. Vero was supposed to take the place of both Facebook and Instagram but it didn’t. I have an account that can be followed but so far I’ve barely used it.
This is Tom Bilyeu and he is the founder of Impact Theory Comics. I was happy to take an autographed copy of his “Hexagon” comic book.
IDW Publishing has a few adult coloring books that are the creative work of artist Alan Robert. Metalheads know him as one of the members of the band Life Of Agony as well and they have been very active of late so do check them out when you get the chance.
For the last few years one of the highlights of the convention exploration was dropping by the folks at Evil Ink Press. They are the publishers of the Science Fiction series “The Amory Wars”. This series is the brainchild of one Claudio Sanchez, singer and guitarist of Hard Rock/Progressive stalwarts Coheed and Cambria.
Claudio always does signings at the booth and the line is ridiculous. It’s awesome that he does this and I always make it a point to snap a quick photo or two when I know his schedule.
I slipped back down to Artist Alley for a few shots and couldn’t resist snapping this design by Michael Golden. Looks familiar doesn’t it? Do you know the story about it? It’s a hoot.
Let me stop here and leave the rest for tomorrow since there still is enough images for one more Day Two posting. Please be sure to click through on the website links down below and to make this all the more special, I’ve added some Amazon.com purchase links for some of the items that were discussed in this chapter. Don’t forget to follow PiercingMetal on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube so you don’t miss a second of the fun. See you next time.
The Press Release:
Brooklyn Vegan, 89.5 FM WSOU, and The Jerry Farley Presents have teamed up to host LIFE OF AGONY’S “The Sound Of Scars” Record Release Celebration at Coney Island Brewery on Saturday, October 12th. This date is significant to the band’s history, because it marks the 26th anniversary of the release of their debut album “River Runs Red.” Life Of Agony will perform new songs from the forthcoming album “The Sound Of Scars”, as well as fan favorites from their catalog.
This is an exclusive hometown event before the group kicks off their S.O.S. World Tour, and there are only two ways to attend… fans can either win tickets from Brooklyn Vegan and WSOU, or purchase a very limited amount of VIP Packages through Coney Island Brewery.
VIP Packages will include access to the band’s soundcheck as well as early entry to the bar where LOA’s very own Joey Z and Alan Robert will serve as guest bartenders!
