LIFE OF AGONY: Video Interview, Performance Footage From Budapest Available

Hungarian metal magazine "Kettõnégy" conducted an interview with guitarist Joseph Zampella (a.k.a. Joey Z) and bassist Alan Robert of the influential New York metal/hardcore band LIFE OF AGONY on July 9, 2008 at A38 in Budapest. The 12-minute clip, which includes performance footage, can be viewed below.

LIFE OF AGONY is putting the finishing touches on its new DVD release, entitled "Life of Agony: Cult Classics Live in Europe 2007". Footage was taken from performances on the New York-based band's last European summer tour. The majority of the DVD includes live songs taken from Belgium's Graspop Metal Meeting where the group performed in front of a crowd of 50,000 people. The DVD also features scenes from Germany's Serengeti Festival as well as backstage tour antics. A late 2008 release is expected.

LIFE OF AGONY spent most of 2006 and early 2007 on a break after completing its successful touring cycle for the 2005 Epic Records release, "Broken Valley". The band is currently without a record deal, having parted ways with Epic in 2005. In the meantime, lead singer Keith Caputo released two solo albums, "Heart's Blood on Your Dawn" and "A Fondness for Hometown Scars" (recorded in April 2007), and has been promoting them with European headlining dates. Joey Z has opened a recording studio in Brooklyn, NY called Method of Groove Studio and has successfully produced and mixed BRAND NEW SIN's last release for Century Media. Joey has also teamed up with Peter Steele (TYPE O NEGATIVE) to reform CARNIVORE.
