LOA

Brooklyn's own Life of Agony have dropped off a gift just in time for the holidays... a pair of NYC area shows! Tickets are on sale for Dec 13th at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ (here) and Dec 14th at the The Blender Theater in NYC (here). The Blender show will keep it family, with Spoiler NYC (featuring Alan Robert of L.O.A.) and My Mortality (featuring Sal Abruscato of L.O.A./Type O Negative) serving as appetizers. Keith Caputo (vocals) has been busy on the solo tip as well... currently promoting his latest record, A Fondness for Hometown Scars and the tour-only release Dass-Berdache, a collection of rarities and demos.

Speaking of NY hardcore-like/metal-like bands, Vision of Disorder have announced that in addition to that previously mentioned Dead In New York live DVD and their lone show at Irving Plaza (tickets are still available), the band is currently working on NEW material for a summer/ fall 2009 release and on the hunt for a new label.

LOA's Keith Caputo recently played a now rare solo show at Mercury Lounge in NYC. Although he played no LOA material, Alan Robert did join him on stage for a second. A video interview with Alan and Joey Z, and those dates below...
