On April 4th, Lacuna Coil release their new album 'Karmacode' Lacuna Coil have embarked on a massive six-week U.S. tour in direct support to Rob Zombie. This trek, which runs through early May, will be the group's first stateside run in support of their highly anticipated new album, Karmacode. It will also be the first time the band has played in the U.S. since their successful Ozzfest 2004 run.
And Lacuna Coil have now been confirmed to play the Main Stage at Ozzfest 2006! They will be playing along side with Hatebreed, System of a Down, Disturbed, and Ozzy Osbourne.
Cristina Scabbia (vocals) describes her excitement over the upcoming tour: "Well, I can't even count the times I said 'Wow, we're so excited about this upcoming tour!' I mean we all know how much Rob influenced the scene and how great his live shows are. We definitely can't wait to share the stage with him and his band. I'm sure it'll be a great experience. It'll be the perfect occasion for us to present the new songs from Karmacode to the fans. This new album is killer and you won't believe your ears. You guys never let us down and we can't wait to see you all. It's been a long time and Lacuna Coil is more than ready to come back!"
The album's lead track, "Our Truth," received its worldwide debut on the Underworld: Evolution soundtrack, where it appeared alongside such acclaimed artists as Puscifer (Maynard Kennan's [Tool, A Perfect Circle] new project), Chester Bennington (Linkin Park), Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, Atreyu and more. A video for the track was shot in Los Angeles by Fort Awesome, a brand-new directorial duo whose individual credits include Queens of the Stone Age, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Chevelle and more.
Lacuna Coil initially left their mark on the hard rock scene in 2004 with their acclaimed album, Comalies, which opened several opportunities for them that were previously thought unattainable for an Italian band, such as two highly successful commercial radio campaigns alongside a breakthrough Ozzfest appearance resulting in over 500,000 copies sold worldwide with a quarter of a million in the U.S. alone.
