Italian metal band Lacuna Coil have announced their first ever headlining Australian tour, kicking off in October this year.
Lacuna Coil have been boldly leading the way in their metal sub genre for decades. Led by the dual male/female vocals of Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro, this band is all gothic imagery, down-tuned guitars and bass, and layered synths.
The tour will be in support of their eigth studio album Delirium which is due for release May 27th. This album has been under full creative control by the band, from production, concept and artwork, promising to deliver the heaviest, darkest and most entrancing music of theirs to date.
The band are planning to put on quite the show. “We’re already discussing stage clothes and stage setup for the tour. I’ve always liked the theatrical side of the show,” vocalist Christina Scabbier explained to Blabbermouth. “I think costumes are important. It’s like going to the theatre and seeing the actors without their proper clothes… it’s sort of a ritual”
This is Lacuna Coil’s first visit to Australia since Soundwave Festival back in 2009, and the band solemnely promise us that this tour will be worth the seven year wait.
Bassist/guitarist Marco Coti-Zelati says: “I can’t wait to see the reactions from the audiences when they hear the ‘Delirium’ songs played for the first time. Fresh, dark and powerfully emotive all at the same time. The strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the ‘90s – in a modern style… this is the album that I think will be exciting to both of our older AND newer fans. I’m excited, and ready to have some fun on stage…”Until then, check out the lyric video for The House Of Shame off the forthcoming album.Lacuna Coil 2016 Australian Tour DatesWednesday, October 12Amplifier Bar, PerthTickets: Destroy All LinesThursday, October 13Max Watt’s, MelbourneTickets: Destroy All LinesFriday, October 14The Metro Theatre, SydneyTickets: Destroy All LinesSaturday, October 15Max Watt’s, BrisbaneTickets: Destroy All LinesTickets on sale 9.00am Thursday, April 28
