Rolling Stone: The Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2016 - Life of Agony's "A Place Where There's No More Pain"

Life of Agony have surprised fans by revealing plans to release their first new album in over a decade, A Place Where There's No More Pain (Napalm Records). "I think our fans know that our music comes from a very real place of suffering, from all of us in the band," says bassist and songwriter Alan Robert, addressing the record's title. "Many of our fans have told us over the years that sharing our personal struggles has been cathartic for them in healing the pain in their own lives. That uplifting energy we share at the shows, gives us hope that there's light at the end of the tunnel. And for us and hopefully our fans, that short time when we're all together is a place where there's no more pain."—Alan Robert, Life of Agony

Killogy Collectables from Skelton Crew Studio Skelton Crew Studio, the sculpting house responsible for creating an array of high-end, limited edition replicas based on award-winning comics properties such as Locke &Key, Hellboy and CHEW, is excited to announce a new partnership with acclaimed comics creator Alan Robert to produce an exclusive line of collectables based on his hit comic Killogy (IDW Publishing).

The first products from the collection will make their debut at Boston Comic Con, July 31 - August 2, 2015. Two 16 oz. etched Killogy Pint Glasses will be available for purchase at Skelton Crew Studio's booth (D517), retailing at $10.99 each. One design features the voodoo artwork found in the comic, circled by an ominous warning of the impending apocalypse, and the other displays a bold Killogy skull logo. Each glass comes complete with a full-color, double-sided "Voodoo Brew" Drink Recipe Card, designed by Robert, using his signature artwork. So have a drink before the dead begin to rise from their graves — it just may be your last!

More products are already in the pipeline and are expected for an early 2016 release, including a plush severed head based on the sarcastic, wisecracking Killogy character One-Eye Tessio. Fans of the comic will not be surprised to discover that One-Eye comes packaged inside his trusty Italian Ices container, just like in the books.

Killogy is such an original concept and an amazing read,” said Skelton Crew Studio head Israel Skelton. “Alan is a huge talent and clearly an idea machine. We couldn’t be more stoked to be working with him.”

Robert adds, "With a roster filled with comics greats like Mignola, Templesmith, Hill & Rodriguez, and Layman & Guillory, I am extremely humbled and flattered to be welcomed into the Skelton Crew family! They produce some of the best replicas I've seen around and they are completely dedicated to bringing each creator's vision to life."

Killogy received critical acclaim and was named one of Bloody Disgusting's Top 5 Best Mini-Series of 2013. It received two Ghastly Awards nominations and picked up a Horror Comic Award from The Horror News Network. The apocalyptic dark comedy is now in development to become an animated series starring Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (the Ramones), Brea Grant (Heroes) and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (of the Misfits fame). The celebrities all appeared inside the pages of the comic as well. In May, Rolling Stone posted a six-minute animated teaser. The animation was produced by Robert's Wasted Talent Entertainment, in association with Squeeze Studio Animation and Rodney Barnes, the producer of The Boondocks.

Alan Robert's Killogy: Gets Animated!

[embed]https://vimeo.com/126460719[/embed] Killogy is a high-energy, animated dark comedy from creator Alan Robert (Life Of Agony) based on his hit IDW Publishing comic series, in association with Squeeze Studio Animation and award-winning producer Rodney Barnes (The Boondocks, Everybody Hates Chris). Stars Frank Vincent (Goodfellas, The Sopranos), Marky Ramone (the Ramones), Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter), and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein (the Misfits) battle it out in apocalyptic-Brooklyn when an ancient voodoo curse wakes the dead and floods the city with blood. This outrageous premise and bizarre mash-up of punk rock royalty, wiseguy sarcasm, and over-the-top gore makes for one hilarious rollercoaster ride.

Killogy is being produced and developed under Robert’s Wasted Talent Entertainment banner, consisting of Robert, Chris White (V/H/S Viral) and Jeff Mazzola (Descent).

Killogy was nominated for Best Mini-Series (2013) and Best One-Shot (2014) at the Ghastly Awards and picked up a Horror Comic Award for Best Scene from ComicMonsters.com. Bloody Disgusting listed Killogy at #4 on their Top 10 Best Mini-Series of 2013. The Killogy: Halloween Special sold out within its first week of distribution and IDW immediately issued a second printing. The critically acclaimed Killogy graphic novel was recently translated in Portuguese for a Brazilian release through NFL Zine.
