New York crossover legends LIFE OF AGONY will headline the Jägermeister Stage at the U.K.'s Damnation Festival, set to take place Saturday, October 24 at Leeds University Union.
The group will bring its emotional blend of heavy rock and alternative metal to the U.K. for the first time since its sold-out show at London's Koko in 2005 following a series of dates headlining festivals across Europe.
Damnation Festival director Gavin McInally said, "Landing a headliner of LIFE OF AGONY's stature is a major coup, and the fact it's the first time they'll play the U.K. in four years, makes it all the more special.
"After playing some off the biggest and most respected rock and metal events across Europe this summer, they'll fly in from New York for this one-off performance and we're delighted to host what is sure to be a special show."
The festival billing is shaping up as follows:
LIFE OF AGONY
THIS WILL DESTROY YOU
A STORM OF LIGHT
EXTREME NOISE TERROR
THE GATES OF SLUMBER
AND SO I WATCH YOU FROM AFAR
