Lacuna Coil Singer Checks In From Ozzfest
July 15, 2006
Lacuna Coil made their much-anticipated return to the U.S. on June 29 as part of this year's Ozzfest main-stage lineup. The massive summer trek coincides with the release of the new single "Enjoy The Silence", which impacted commercial radio this week. The video for the track, completed by the directorial team Fort Awesome, who also shot the group's acclaimed "Our Truth" clip, will also make its U.S. television debut on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" this Saturday, July 15 at 10:00 p.m. EST/7:00 p.m. PST.

Since its release, Lacuna Coil's new album, 'Karmacode', has sold over 100,000 units, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and spent a total of eight weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album's success can be partly contributed to the strength of its lead-off single, "Our Truth", and a stellar live performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in May. The track was added by over 75 Active Rock and Alternative Radio outlets (and played by well over 125 commercial outlets in all), becoming a Top 30 Active Rock single while spending over 2 1/2 months on the Top 40 Active Rock Radio Chart and reaching a monitored Arbitron audience of over 11 million listeners.

Andrea Ferro (vocals) checks in with the following Ozzfest report: "Ozzfest is well underway and we couldn't be more excited! To play on the main stage is a big challenge for us. The mood is really different from the second stage, and you really have to win over the audience that very often is sitting in a chair waiting to be impressed. The signing sessions at FYE and Jagermeister are always special moments to get closer to the fans that often tell us that they can't afford the seats on main stage and that they watch the show from far away on the lawn. That is true devotion, and we can never thank them enough for the support.

"Last Sunday was one of the most special days we've ever spent on tour and it will be surely the one we will never forget. On that day, our beloved Italy played France in the World Cup final. The tension was at a maximum level for us. Our bus was filled with the Dragonforce guys, their crew, some of the security guys with Italian blood and our friends in Unearth (Italian blooded as well) all watchin' the match on satellite. When Italy won, all of us started running around in a triumph of flags and soccer jerseys. We then played our show wearing our national soccer jerseys and with flags on top of the bass speakers. It was a hell of a party. That's it for the moment and we hope to see you all soon."

Lacuna Coil's breakthrough single "Heaven's A Lie", from the acclaimed 2002 album 'Comalies', is also currently featured in a summer promotional spot for CBS-TV's "Criminal Minds" program.

Lacuna Coil 'Ozzfest' Off-Dates Announced
June 22, 2006
Lacuna Coil will make their much-anticipated return to the U.S. on June 29 as part of this year's Ozzfest main stage lineup. The massive summer trek will also coincide with the release of the new single, "Enjoy the Silence" (Depeche Mode cover), which will impact commercial radio on July 11. The video for the track, completed by the directorial team Fort Awesome, who also shot the group's acclaimed "Our Truth" clip, will make its Fuse and MTV2 debut the same week the track hits radio.

Since its release, Lacuna Coil's new album, Karmacode, has sold over 100,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and spent a total of eight weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album's success can be partly contributed to the strength of its lead-off single, "Our Truth", and live performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", which took place last month. The track was added by over 75 commercial rock and alternative radio outlets (and played by well over 125 commercial outlets), becoming a Top 30 Active Rock single while spending over 2 1/2 months on the Top 40 Active Rock Radio chart and reaching a monitored Arbitron audience of over 11 million listeners.

Lacuna Coil have also scheduled a number of high profile off-dates this summer with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold and Disturbed, among others.

Andrea Ferro (male vocals) checks in with the following report: "We are almost done with our round of European festivals, and it's really been a blast! Some shows, we played in front of some of the biggest crowds we've ever seen, and with so many of our favorite bands. The summer is finally kickin' in and things are looking great for us since we will be performing on the main stage of Ozzfest this year. I clearly remember what happened in 2004 when this new band from Italy first had the pleasure of taking part in this mythical event. We couldn't believe we were really going to spend the summer playing in the U.S. in front of so many people each day while being able to hang out with all those icons. It really was a dream come true! To be back this year on the main stage is once again something very unexpected and a true honor for us. We hope to see ya all there ready to jump and sing along with the new songs."

Lacuna Coil and Music Choice, the leading multi-platform music network, have joined forces to bring you exclusive material that no hard rock/metal fan will want to miss.
