Produced by Sylvia Massy (Tool, System of a Down), whose work has received multiple Grammy Awards and nominations, along wih LOA’s Joey Z (with mixing duties helmed by Massy), have tapped esteemed engineer Howie Weinberg (Nirvana, Soundgarden) to master the record. The Sound of Scars continues the haunting narrative from the band’s groundbreaking 1993 debut River Runs Red, which Rolling Stone hailed as “One of the greatest metal albums of all time.“

“There is something incredible happening around this Sound Of Scars record and we can absolutely all feel it.“ bassist Alan Robert comments. “To get out there and start playing these new songs for everyone is gonna be a blast… and to do it with our dear friend and musical hero, Doyle of the Misfits fame, is definitely going to be a tour to remember. We’re already plotting some cool collaborations on stage! I’m packing my many, many Misfits shirts! (laughs)”
