Lacuna Coil’s special July 22 “119 Show” at the Gramercy Theatre in New York has officially sold out. As a result, the band have booked another “119 Show” at the same venue on July 23. These performances will be similar to the band’s 20th anniversary show, which was held in January 2018 at the O2 Forum in London, England. That concert is now available on Blu-ray/DVD/CD. In other news, the group are currently working on a new album, which Cristina Scabbia previously described as “heavy and dark.”
According to Cristina Scabbia, the new Lacuna Coil album is going to be “heavy and dark.” She said the following:
“So many great things going to happen but I can’t say anything now, damnit!! Oh, the new record is going to be damn awesome, heavy and dark, just so you know…#staytuned #aaaaahcantwait”
Lacuna Coil have premiered a new live video for “Nothing Stands In Our Way.” The footage is taken from the band’s new Blu-ray/DVD/CD, “The 119 Show – Live In London,” which was released today (November 9). That effort features the group’s special 20th anniversary show, which was held on January 19 at the O2 Forum in London, England.
Lacuna Coil have shared a video recap focusing on the October 23 screening of their new live release, “The 119 Show – Live In London”, at Screen On The Green, Islington, London. That event also included a Q&A session with Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro. The film features the band’s special 20th anniversary show, which was held on January 19 in London at the O2 Forum Kentish Town, and it will be available tomorrow (November 9).
It looks like Lacuna Coil may be releasing a new album in 2019. Cristina Scabbia told Metal Wani the following:
“We are starting to work on a new record, even though, I have to say, there are no songs ready at all. Because our head right now is in tour mode, and to work on the book and the DVD, it required so much time that we honestly didn’t focus properly on the songwriting. So as soon as we’ll be back home after the Euro tour that we are approaching, we will focus on the songwriting, and then the thing will be real, but so far, we didn’t really have a lot of time and, most of all, the right mindset to compose new music. We want to do it in a very serious way and in a way that we know that we can produce good stuff, but soon. We’re planning a new record for next year. Hopefully we’ll make it.”
Lacuna Coil have premiered a new live video for “The House Of Shame.” The footage is taken from the band’s new Blu-ray/DVD/CD, “The 119 Show – Live In London,” which will be released on November 9. That effort features the group’s special 20th anniversary show, which was held on January 19 at the O2 Forum in London, England.
Lacuna Coil will be releasing their new book “Nothing Stands In Our Way“ on November 28 via Rocket 88. It will be available in two options including “The Classic,” which is a hardback with foil detailing and retails, 224 pages, and more than 200 images, and “The Signature,” which comes with the same hardback in a deluxe clamshell box. That edition will be signed by the band and it will also come with four exclusive original art prints created by Marco Zela Coti. Those that pre-order the book will have a chance to get their name printed in it.
Here’s a description of the book:
“The full 20-year story of the Italian Gothfathers as told by the band in their own words. Illustrated throughout with rare and candid photographs, memorabilia and personal artefacts, here is the Lacuna Coil story in all its dark glory. Founder members Andrea Ferro, Marco Coti Zelati, and Cristina Scabbia have recalled the birth, growth and full flowering of the band to tell twenty years of Lacuna Coil in NOTHING STANDS IN OUR WAY.”
Cristina Scabbia commented:
“I’m so excited to share what the last 20 years of my life were made of! It has been an awesome journey so far and so much happened, it was almost impossible to remember it all. You all know a lot about us, but there is SO much more we never said and showed before. Now the time is right to do it. Our backstages and living rooms will open up for you all… you’re welcome, coilers, come in and get comfortable… Once upon a time…”
