Lacuna Coil Premiere “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You” Music Video

Lacuna Coil have premiered a new video for their song “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You.” This song is from the band’s latest album “Delirium.”

Cristina Scabbia commented:

“The videos we shot with Cosimo Alemà are exactly what we wanted to deliver visually, especially if connected with a record like ‘Delirium’. The darkness, the intensity, the script itself are taking the viewer to the dimension we wanted to be transported to. ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’ and ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ are tightened together in a twisted story that I like a lot as there is so much that can be defined with each one’s imagination. Interpreting different characters was also exciting, an interesting challenge I hadn’t faced until then. I hope the viewers can capture the magic we breathed while we shot them.”

Andrea Ferro added:

“Every age has its form of storytelling, and video clips have been a huge part of our culture. Talking with Cosimo and our label, we decided to create something to bring back the artistic quality video clips used to have. We put our love for cinema into our video for the song ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’, as you will see there is a clear inspiration from TV series like ‘True Detective’ and also a certain ‘Twin Peaks’/’Resident Evil’ vibe. We wanted the viewers to contemplate the story and question what it really means. There is also a tight connection with the previous video for the song ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ as both clips should be considered almost as one single piece. The videos clearly explore the main theme of our latest album, ‘Delirium’, and all its madness and symbols. It’s been a really great and challenging experience to be on the set for several days and work in ‘cinema style’ for the very first time to create something completely new for Lacuna Coil.”

Lacuna Coil Re-Sign With Century Media

Lacuna Coil have announced that they have re-signed with Century Media Records. The band have been working with the label for 20 years.

Cristina Scabbia commented:

“I am so excited to have signed with Century Media again. Nowadays it is so important that, whichever label is backing up an artist or a band, one has full trust in the artistic and musical vision. I know that Lacuna Coil and Century Media will continue to work hard together to make common goals happen faster and more successfully.”

Andrea Ferro added:

“We are really excited about starting this new adventure with Century Media Records. We’ve had some great 20 years together that helped us become an internationally successful band. Like in every relationship there have been ups and downs, but overall we’ve worked with some great people who have always been willing to grow up with the band and together we have achieved really amazing goals. Here’s to another chapter about to start and more successful stories!”
