LIFE OF AGONY'S TRIUMPHANT RETURN TO THE STAGE IN 2014! THE ORIGINAL 'RIVER RUNS RED' LINE-UP EMERGES
WITH MINA CAPUTO
Life of Agony performed on multiple festival dates in Europe over the summer, the first shows since the group's lead singer Mina Caputo (formerly known as Keith Caputo) came out as transgender in 2011. The shows took place at Belgium's Alcatraz Hard Rock & Metal Festival with Marilyn Manson on Friday, August 8th, Austria's Picture On Festival on Saturday, August 9th (headlined), Germany's Elb-Riot Festival with Machine Head on Saturday, August 16th, and Germany's X-Rockfest Festival with Machine Head on Sunday, August 17th. The famed River Runs Red line-up, rounded out by guitarist Joey Z, bassist Alan Robert and drummer Sal Abruscato were excited to take the stage together once again after a three-year hiatus.
"We've helped so many people around the world cope with their emotional struggles through our music, it was time to get back out there," said Robert, regarding the group's decision to reunite. "Our songs connect with people on an emotional level because they were written out of real pain and hardship. It doesn't matter if you're white, black, blue, green, gay, straight, trans or whatever. Our fans know it comes from a real place and have stood by us. We've always worn our hearts on our sleeves. That is just who we are and that is something that will never change."
