Life of Agony will head out on a string of North American dates in December (Starland Ballroom in NJ included), but up until now their schedule did not include a hometown show...

BrooklynVegan is proud to co-present - along with WSOU and The Jerry Farley - LOA's now-announced Record Release Celebration in their (and our) hometown at Coney Island Brewery on Oct 12th. The Brooklyn show is one day after new concept album The Sound of Scars will be released into the world, and happens to be the 26th anniversary of classic concept album River Runs Red, which the new album is a sequel to. Expect songs from both albums at the show.

To get in to the Coney Island show, you either need to win tickets from BrooklynVegan (that's us) or WSOU, or purchase one of the limited VIP Packages through Coney Island Brewery (update: direct VIP ticket link HERE). VIP packages go on sale Friday, Sept 27, 10am, and 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.

Enter our contest for a pair of general admission tickets, below!

Fifteen winners will be chosen at random, and contacted with more details.
