Commented Keith: "Music is the highest art form. The power of music is singing and writing songs from somewhere deep inside that nothing in society could seem to touch... I sit in the studio and lay down the truth. Listen is all I ask. Please share with just about everyone in your life. Much obliged."

Caputo appeared live on stage at the Nokia Theatre in New York City in December 2005 with members of STONE SOUR and SLIPKNOT performing at the Roadrunner United show. Keith also appeared on the Fuse music channel on Friday, October 14, 2005 performing "Tired & Lonely" with SLIPKNOT's Joey Jordison and other Roadrunner "all-stars."

LIFE OF AGONY recently parted ways with Epic Records after issuing only one album through the label — 2005's critically acclaimed "Broken Valley". The group's previous release was a live album and DVD, entitled "River Runs Again: Live 2003". The two-disc set was recorded during the group's sold-out reunion shows at Irving Plaza in New York City on January 3-4, 2003 and was issued through SPV Records worldwide.
