Did you ever have a go-to band or album when you were younger that you’d …
Alt-metal New Yorkers, Life Of Agony, have today said they’ve had so much fun touring recently with Doyle (of Misfits fame), that they’ll be shifting their debut Australian tour dates so the famed guitarist can come out here with them!

“We had so much fun touring Europe with Doyle we’ve decided to pair up in Australia too,” Life Of Agony have said. “To make our schedules line up we have to move the dates to May.
“We are so excited about our first time in Australia and so happy to have our brother Doyle join us … See you soon!”
Ultimately, it’s good news–all tickets bought for Life Of Agony’s original tour dates will be honoured, and they’re coming out with a dead set legend in tow. We get to enjoy the horror-punk artistry of Doyle, the eponymous band formed by Misfits’ Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, and break our necks to bookend albums, Life Of Agony’s latest release, The Sound Of Scars, which continues the narrative from the seminal genre-crossover 1993 debut River Runs Red.
As it’s Life Of Agony’s first ever Australian tour, no doubt the band will of course be busting out some of the tunes sandwiched between those releases, from albums like Ugly and Soul Searching Sun, released in 1995 and 1997 respectively, and of course, 2005’s Broken Valley and 2017’s highly acclaimed A Place Where There’s No More Pain. Killer tunes from an almost 30-year discography, with the addition of Doyle to the line-up, we think you’re mad if you miss this!
