Lacuna Coil Premiere “Apocalypse” Live Video

Lacuna Coil have premiered a new live video for their song “Apocalypse.” The footage is taken from the band’s new live release “Live From The Apocalypse,” which will be available on June 25. That effort will feature the band’s September 11, 2020 livestream show in which they performed “Black Anima” in full at the Alcatraz Club in Milan, Italy.

Cristina Scabbia commented:

“Looking at the sand gliding down through the hourglass… ‘Apocalypse‘ is factual and actual in today’s pandemic, though, we couldn’t foresee this when we wrote it: the separation, the solitude, the confusion, the resilience. We keep on fighting for our will to survive.”

Fellow vocalist Andrea Ferro added:

“Apocalypse is usually a huge concept involving destruction or damage and the way the world ends. In our vision, there’s no big apocalypse just endless little ones. Ignorance, complacency, selfishness alone can bring apocalypse.”

Andrea Ferro commented:

“On one hand, it felt awkward to play for a huge empty room. But on the other hand, it felt great to finally reconnect with our fans at home and with the people working behind the scenes. A lot of people enjoyed the show — it was definitely a one-off event loaded with a lot of emotions and feelings. ‘Live From The Apocalypse’ is an opportunity to offer a new release to our fans while the COVID-19 crisis is still a real thing, affecting them and us. The live album represents a unique moment in our career (and life) that will be forever remembered as that one time when we literally ‘rose from the Apocalypse.'”

Lacuna Coil Stood In Silence During Recent Livestream To Raise Awareness For Struggling Venues Amid The Coronavirus Pandemic

Lacuna Coil were among the artists who took part in the recent ”L’Ultimoe Concerto?” livestream and many fans tuned in thinking they were about to see a live show. However, the band ended up just standing there in silence in an effort to raise awareness for venues in Italy, which, like many venues around the world, have continued to struggle amid the pandemic.

Lacuna Coil commented:

“For those watching from all over the world, we’re sorry you guys didn’t get to see the show you were expecting. We just stood in silence, showing our support to the live club scene. Unfortunately, live clubs in Italy and the rest of the world have been closed for a year now, and there’s no sign of re-opening anytime soon. We believe they should get the right attention and recognition, because that is what they deserve: to be considered as cultural spaces. Hopefully, this initiative will bring their uncertain situation to everybody’s attention”

They also added:

“You were expecting to see a live show while we just stood in silence. It’s not a bad joke. This is the situation of live clubs in Italy. Places where we got to meet man of you. It is with this bitter taste in our mouths that we’re asking for your support for them. A live show with no music is not a live show. A silent live club is not a live club. Thanks for being part of this, for your support, and for being there in this very moment which will hopefully be a turning point. From now on, we just want to talk about the next live show. Thank you!”

Frontwoman Cristina Scabbia also further discussed the livestream in the below video:
