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.”

Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia Opens Up About Contracting COVID-19 In December 2021

During a recent interview with The Metal Circus, Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia opened up about her battle with COVID-19. The singer, who is fully vaccinated, says she contracted the virus in December 2021 and had to spend Christmas and New Year’s Eve by herself.

Scabbia said the following:

“I got it in December. I spent Christmas and New Year’s Eve alone at home. Yay! [Laughs] Actually, it was not that bad, because I am a very independent person, so even when I’m alone, I’m fine. And I am not a huge lover of Christmas and New Year’s Eve anyway. Of course, I missed my family, but at the same time, I was, like, ‘I have everything I need. I have a TV, I have a computer, I have a microphone, I have all the outlets that can keep me busy,’ so I cannot complain.”

She continued when asked how sick she got:

“The first week was not fun. Two days were pretty bad because I had a high fever for not even a day — a fever that went down with medicines. But it hits every person differently, and the way it hit me was not on the throat. For example, a lot of people suffered throat and coughing. For me, it was just like normal coughing. The throat was okay. I had a sense of small and taste; they never went away. But for a week I suffered. Like, my nerves were hurting — from the back into the legs. I couldn’t find a comfortable position in bed, so I couldn’t sleep because I would keep waking up because I had, like, nerve pain. Like sort of a sciatica, but double — not only on one side; on the other side as well. It was pretty bad. Then the second week I had sort of a congestion, so I was talking very nasally. But overall, I was okay.”

Scabbia also expressed her frustration with those who still refuse to get vaccinated:

“Well, that’s a hard topic because I get really, really angry, in a way, when I talk about this. Because I trust science. A lot of my friends are scientists, biologists, virologists, so I talk to them constantly. And to see people that have no idea about medicine, including me, because I never studied science or any type of matters related to science, thinking that they know everything about how a vaccine works, what’s in there, long-term risks, trials, it’s very depressing. Because now on Internet, everybody’s an expert after watching a couple of videos on YouTube or a web site created the day before from a person that you don’t know. Yet again some people [are] more willing to believe a person that they have no idea about instead of a whole community, a worldwide community, of doctors. And this is really depressing to me because we’re in 2022 [and] we should be open about that and, most of all, we shouldn’t make something that helps our health politic.

A lot of people are confusing politics and the vaccine. I mean, we’re still in between a pandemic — we’re right through a pandemic; we’re getting out, but we’re still in it — so we should trust who can help us to get out of this pandemic. So no YouTubers, no streamers, no unknown people on Internet; we should trust doctors because they’re studying the matter. They know what a virus is and they know how to fight it. They got together with other doctors around the world to solve the problem. Instead, all the other things are coming out. ‘Oh, it’s just for money.’ ‘Oh, it’s a political thing.’ ‘Oh, they want to control us.’ And I’m, like, how do they control you? You have this [lifts her smartphone]. You’re writing on Facebook. They know your cellphone. They know where you live. They know what you eat. They know when you go to the bathroom. Yet again, you think that they’re gonna be controlling you putting 5G with the vaccine. And I’m, like, ‘Really? Really?’

So the only thing that I can say is that it was very clear from the very beginning that the intent of the vaccine was to keep the bad symptoms down. It wasn’t intended to, ‘You’re never gonna get COVID.’ Because they’re still studying it.

There is always an answer, a clear answer for very [anti]-vaxxer that I talk to. Yet again, they don’t accept it. They like better to trust strangers or a fake study on a picture that everybody can manipulate. But no, [they think] it’s easier to manipulate a whole community of doctors around the world [who] don’t know each other.”
