Life Of Agony Frontman Keith Caputo Confirms Rumors of Gender Reassignment

In a bizarrely unfolding story introduced at ThePRP, confirmed at Metal Insider, and expanded at Blabbermouth, Life Of Agony frontman Keith Caputo does indeed appear to have deserted the male gender and reinvented himself as a "frontwoman" - at least in spirit and appearance. Caputo cleared things up amongst a flurry of tweets: "I'm keeping my penis!"

Meanwhile, Life Of Agony is in the midst of a trio of European shows (Germany, Belgium, Netherlands). Whether or not these shows are their last, as has been heavily rumored, some interesting fan-shot footage of the band's performance in Augsburg, Germany, has surfaced - featuring Caputo in his newfound, gender-ambiguous persona.

Well, around here, we are not allowed to say p***s....nor p***y...neither can we say c***, or c***

so if some agonized drag queen wants to trade its p***s for a c***, or get a p***y to replace its c***...well, around here, its all pretty much the same

Some people are wondering why this is "news" but I think it's fine to get an update on this sort of thing, as usually the person going through this sort of change needs people to know who they are. And having this as news allows fans not to be confused.

Yeah, he's trans-gender. Good for him, I hope he's happy. It'd be too much to ask for narrow-minded, ignorant people out there to not give em a hard time. With things like this support is needed, no matter how confident the tranny may seem. Fans (and people in general) should definitely support (or at least tolerate) his new identity.

So, I waited patiently for someone... Anyone to ask this question and nobody has. I am truely dissappointed in ALL of you. I wonder if he's taking the estrogen? Just because he's keeping his crank doesn't mean sh!t to me. Will his vox sound the same? I don't wanna think about a LOA with a higher register vocal. It's perfect where it is.

BG- I would wager he is on estrogen pills. Loss of low vocals replaced by tranny boobs?

never really heard this band's music, but I think they played one of the SOTU fests one year. Anyway, I would not be surprised if this guy was abused sexually and physically growing up by someone within his family. I am no expert, but the few people I have met in my life who had "gender issues" almost always seemed to have a father or uncle that molested and/or daily beat the sh** of them. If this is the case with the LOA singer I feel sorry for him. I could not imagine the psychological issues he must be working thru.

either way, go good luck to the band and their new front-tranny!

Agreed Olaf, hence my concern. Not sure where 43 is comming from but I happen to know a few that DEFINATELY went through a change in tone and attributed the change to the pills. The best part of LOA and backups on Type O's songs was Keith's tonality.
