    Life of Agony will release their sixth album, The Sound of Scars, this fall. In anticipation of its release, the veteran alt-metal band has teamed up with Heavy Consequence to premiere the video for the brand new track “Lay Down”.

    The Sound of Scars arrives on October 11th via Napalm Records, nearly 26 years to the day that Life of Agony’s first album, River Runs Red, was released. In fact, the new LP serves as a sequel to the debut effort, telling the story of what happened to the troubled teenager who served as the lyrical center of the 1993 debut.

    “Lay Down”, which follows first single “Scars”, features singer Mina Caputo delivering the powerful chorus, “I won’t lay down and die.” As bassist Alan Robert explained, “It’s an anthem for survivors. We’ve all been through situations in our lives where everything seems completely hopeless. ‘Lay Down’ is about believing in yourself when no one else will. Times when you really have to dig down deep to find that that last ounce of strength to keep on going.”


    The video (watch below) was filmed at New Jersey’s White Hill Mansion, a building that is more than 250 years old, and has been investigated for paranormal activity on numerous occasions. “You could absolutely feel the spirits in those rooms,” said Robert of the video shoot. “Especially in the basement where we heard that a murder took place.”

    Pre-orders of The Sound of Scars are available now, while the band’s upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
