KEITH CAPUTO Signs With FOF LABEL GROUP For Release Of New Album

LIFE OF AGONY frontman Keith Caputo has signed with FOF Label Group/EMI for the North American release of his new solo album, "A Fondness For Hometown Scars". The singer/songwriter's CD will be made available through the label on October 10, 2010, and packaged with a live DVD of Keith Caputo performing with a 15-piece orchestra in Cologne, Germany.

"Signing with FOF Label Group gives me an enthusiastic and intoxicating feeling. It's amazing to be working with Dennis Sanders, one of the most fired up cats I've ever come across in this business, and an Indie label/team that is mutually electrified by the music," says Keith Caputo. "I look forward to opening doors that have never been opened here in America. My sincere thanks to all at FOF Label Group for believing in me as an artist, poet, and for adoring the album 'A Fondness For Hometown Scars'."

"Keith is an artist unlike any I've ever met and he has made a record that I can only describe as addictive," added FOF Label Group's Dennis Sanders. "Keith Caputo has been in the underground NY scene far too long, it's time for the rest of the world to share in this sweet addiction."

One of the biggest voices in rock music today belongs to LIFE OF AGONY frontman Keith Caputo. After garnering a massive following with the world famous metal outfit life of agony, Caputo went solo in 1997 to pursue an alternative — but no less intense — musical direction. The past ten years have seen Caputo record seven albums with a who's who of industry veterans, including bassist and trumpet player Flea (RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS), guitarist Craig Ross (LENNY KRAVITZ, ERIC CLAPTON, SHERYL CROW), pianist Zac Rae (FIONA APPLE, MILEY CYRUS, ANNIE LENNOX), producer Martyn Lenoble (JANE'S ADDICTION, PORNO FOR PYROS, THE CULT), and mixer Greg Fidelman (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MARILYN MANSON, JOHNNY CASH). Worldwide touring ensued where Caputo has shared stages with titans like COLDPLAY, NINE INCH NAILS, BJÖRK, DAVID BOWIE, PIXIES and FOO FIGHTERS.
