He has been talking about transitioning for a while now. It actually kind of explains all his issues from the past (ie heroin etc.). Props to him for having the balls (heh) to actually go through with it.

Well if it makes him/her happy, I wish him/her the best. River Runs Red is still a great album.

Life Of Agony To Play Final Shows? Keith Caputo Gets A Sex Change? It Looks To Be True

Posted by Zach Shaw on Thu, Jul 14, 2011 at 4:39 pm

Wife Of Agony

A lot of rumors are swirling the internet about Life Of Agony. The first one being that the band’s overseas this weekend might also be their last. This might not be as surprising since Life Of Agony has been keeping a relatively low profile over the past few years. Besides releasing Broken Valley in 2005 and a live album last year, LOA hasn’t done more than the occasional live show since reforming in 2003. However, another rumor regarding the band, or more namely singer Keith Caputo, is a tad more…surprising.

Many are now speculating that Caputo has undergone a sex change and is now a frontwoman. Well, all clues are pretty much pointing to “yes.” In case the picture up top didn’t give it away, Caputo posted the following via Twitter that fueled both rumors:

“LOA has already gone in2 isolation & it’s got nothin 2 do w me transitioning. my boys love me regardless of my life choices!”

On top of that, multiple messages on Caputo’s website refer to the singer as “her” (as well as Keith Mina). Oh and then there’s this tweet that pretty much confirms this. So in other words, the rumors about Mr. Miss Caputo are true.

Now this would be the best time to point out that this doesn’t change the fact that Keith’s river still won’t run red. However, we’re sure that this has been a very hard change for him/her, as well as the rest of the band. It’s certainly a surprise to most metal fans, but so was finding out that Rob Halford was gay (not necessarily as extreme as this, but still a major shocker to most fans at the time). Regardless of the shock, we’re glad that Caputo now feels comfortable as her real self. And thanks to the trail blazed by King Kobra’s Mark (Marcie) Free, he’s not the first metal singer to undergo gender reassignment.

We’ll keep you posted if more develops in this story. Here are the dates rumored to be Life Of Agony’s last shows:

7/15 Augsburg, GER – Kantine
7/16 Dour, BEL – Dour Festival
7/17 Lichtenvoorde, NET – Zwarte Cross Festival

Another reason to avoid drugs.

Keith was emo before emo ever existed. There are only about 5 songs that I like off Ugly.

Wow. Great fucking point. He wasnt always emo though. I saw them a few times in the 90's and Keith actually sang the songs like they were recorded. Once they broke up and got back together (after the Whitfield Crane debacle) Keith seemed very "different", which was ok but I just didnt like the way he performed the classics.


(on a side note: I cant help but wonder what Peter Steele would have thought of this. I really hope theres some sort of after-life and he's laughing his ass off right now)

One last update:

http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=160718

Apparently he DID NOT get a sex change.

In a July 11 tweet, Caputo said, "my cuzins even get on me for being transgender, callin me the dumbest names, but it's all in good fun they'll really kill 4 me." The vocalist also re-tweeted a story from Metal Insider claiming the singer was due to get a sex change. He replied with the message, "Thx for being sweet & respectful..Deeply appreciate it. FYI, I'm keeping my penis!"

Anyone who would name their band Life of Agony is a drama queen.
