Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia Recovering From Facial Burns Following Cooking Accident

Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia is currently recovering after suffering facial burns from some “boiling oil.” The incident happened while the singer was cooking fries in her kitchen.

Scabbia said the following:

“Basically, yesterday I was cooking some food, and I was using a small pan to fry some chips. And what happened is that I used something to grab some chips and put them somewhere else. And the utensil that I was using basically slipped off my fingers, moving the pan.

I did a movement like this and created a sort of a wave that went straight in my face. So it was pretty horrible, because there was a lot of… I got scared for a second, because, of course, the pain, the burning. I didn’t really know what the situation [was], because all you feel when you burn yourself is just the burn. So you don’t know what’s going on.

It’s red for a second, then it swells, then it goes down. And I didn’t know how the situation was, so I literally put my face underneath cold water — very cold water — and tried to wash the oil away. So I grabbed some soap very quickly without, of course, fractioning it too much. And I washed my face. And then I put it under water. And then I cut a few leaves from my aloe vera [plant] and I put them on the skin because aloe vera is amazing for burns.

Yesterday was horrible because it kept on burning; I didn’t know how to keep the burning down. I kept on my face a towel with water being really, really careful. It also got me on my hand.”

She went on to say that she is “very, very, very lucky” that the oil didn’t get in her eye. She also added:

“Many horrible things are happening at home because this is the place where you feel safe so you kind of let go all the precautions because you feel that you’re untouchable.”

Andrea Ferro: “Maybe By The End Of 2023, We’ll See A New Album From Lacuna Coil”

During a recent interview with MetalSucks, Andrea Ferro offered an update on Lacuna Coil’s next album. According to him, the effort might surface “by the end of 2023.”

Ferro said the following:

“We’ve been working on it a little bit, and we plan to go after it fully in early 2023. We have some very early versions and rough concepts of these songs that we’re working on. We’ve looked at some ideas for album art and are kicking around titles, but it’s still early, and nothing is final yet. And we’ve just had a meeting with the label recently, and we talked about it, but it’s too early for us to put a release on it yet.

We don’t want to rush anything and want it to be a quality album. I can say that we plan to have tighter arrangements and that we don’t want to make it overly long. So, in early 2023, we’ll meet up, listen to everything we’ve collected, and see where we are. We’ll work hard on the material and flesh it out to fully realized songs. But no hard release date, but maybe by the end of 2023, we’ll see a new album from Lacuna Coil. It depends on how these sessions go; we’ll see.”

Lacuna Coil: “There Will Be New Music Coming Out Soon”

It looks like we might be getting new music from Lacuna Coil in the near future. Singers Andrea Ferro and Cristina Scabbia recently told Rock Sound that fans can expect to hear new material “soon.”

Ferro said the following:

“We’ve been a bit sneaky, to be honest. Because, yes, there will be new music coming out soon, and soon we’re gonna announce what is it exactly, but it’s not album number ten.”

Scabbia continued:

“It is something special — it is a special project. But it is recorded. We’re actually finishing little things here and there.”

Ferro added:

“We can’t say much. [But] very soon — in a couple of months everything will be more clear.”

Scabbia concluded:

“And you will see something new as well soon.”
