Hard rock group Life Of Agony have announced that they will be performing at Belgium’s Alcatraz Hard Rock & Metal Festival on August 8th. This will be the band’s first stage performance since 2011, when singer Mina Caputo (formerly known as Keith Caputo) came out as transgender. The lineup will feature guitarist Joey Z, bassist Alan Robert, and drummer Sal Abruscato (A Pale Horse Named Death), which the lineup of the band’s River Runs Red album.

Robert comments, “We’ve helped so many people around the world cope with their emotional struggles through our music, it was time to get back out there. Our songs connect with people on an emotional level because they were written out of real pain and hardship. It doesn’t matter if you’re white, black, blue, green, gay, straight, trans or whatever. Our fans know it comes from a real place and have stood by us. We’ve always worn our hearts on our sleeves. That is just who we are and that is something that will never change.
