Lacuna Coil Concert tickets and Tours

Lacuna Coil Biography:

Lacuna Coil is an Italian gothic metal band formed in Milan, Italy, in 1996. They were formerly known as Sleep of Right and Ethereal. The band was heavily inspired by gothic imagery, and the members are known, musically, for composing midtempo songs consisting of guitar lines overlayed with prominent keyboard work, and contrasting dual female/male vocal harmonies to help create a melodic sound. However, much of their more recent material sees a more down-tuned style similar to that of some of their influences such as Korn and Meshuggah. According to the band, they are and have been influenced by Paradise Lost, Tiamat, Septic Flesh, Type O Negative, and In Flames, among others.

The band formed as Sleep of Right in 1994, but soon changed their name to Ethereal, and were signed by Century Media at the end of 1997. Finding that the name Ethereal was already taken, they settled instead on Lacuna Coil (which means empty spiral).

 Lacuna Coil performing at the Heineken Jamming Festival 2006The band consisted at that point of co-vocalists Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro with bassist/keyboardist Marco Coti Zelati. The band recorded a self titled EP, released in 1998, and went on tour supporting label-mates Moonspell. The band was accompanied for this tour by guitarist Cristiano Migliore and drummer Cristiano Mozzati.

Following a second European tour, the band recorded their debut full-length album, In a Reverie, and added second guitarist Marco Biazzi. The band supported the album with another European tour, co-headlining with Skyclad.

In 2002, the band released Comalies, an album which received acclaim and rave reviews from certain corners of the metal world. Over a year later, the first single from this album, Heaven's a Lie, began to receive radio and media attention and pulled the band into the mainstream. The second single, Swamped, also played in heavy rotation, and was used in the video game "Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines", both in one of the game's fictitous clubs and along with the game's endgame credits. Music videos were filmed for both songs and broadcast on MTV's Headbanger's Ball, further extending the band's reach.

By 2004, Comalies had become the best-selling CD in Century Media's history. The band appeared at Ozzfest in between headlining club tours in America and Europe. In an effort to best take advantage of Lacuna Coil's ascendant popularity, the band and label postponed the release of their highly-anticipated follow up to Comalies, Karmacode, to early 2006. According to the band's website, this made it possible for more time to be spent on production while also avoiding the crowded summer 2005 release schedule for metal albums. On December 23rd, 2005, the band announced via their official web site that all recording, mixing, and mastering has been finished and that Karmacode is complete. Soon after, it was announced that Karmacode would be released in USA on April 4th, 2006. One of its tracks, "Our Truth", is the first single (and video) and is featured as well on the soundtrack of the movie Underworld: Evolution in stores on January 10th, 2006. The video has had rotation on MTV.

During their 2005 European Tour, Lacuna Coil performed two new songs (working titles "A2" and "Antonio") at selected concerts. "Our Truth" is one of these songs, tentatively referred to at the time as "Antonio", while the song "A2" has been renamed to "Fragile", and is the opening track on Karmacode.

Corresponding with the release of the new album, Lacuna Coil went on tour with Rob Zombie throughout North America in early 2006. Once again, Lacuna Coil are playing in Ozzfest, this time on the main stage. They also played at the 2006 Download Festival, a three-day festival in England's Donington Park which was headlined by Metallica, Tool, and Guns N' Roses. They are also scheduled to play one night in the UK at Sheffield Corporation on October 17th.
