For Immediate Release:

Italy’s Lacuna Coil Primed to Enchant Audiences at OZZFEST 2004 & Key Regional Performances

Casting a spell over American audiences and moving over 100,000 units of their latest album for Century Media Records Comalies, Milan, Italy’s Lacuna Coil is set to enrapture the rampaging crowds at Ozzfest 2004. Having recently wrapped an admirable tenure touring with P.O.D., the band has made a name for itself by fusing captivating, soul-searing rock music with the enchanting, euphoric vocals of frontwoman Cristina Scabbia. Lacuna Coil is primed to bring a touch of class to this year's otherwise rambunctious Ozzfest lineup, which features the likes of Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Slayer and Slipknot. Cristina explains, “I think we will be bringing something very different to Ozzfest this year; we’ll bring a very European touch, energy and power mixed with melancholy and melody.”

Yielding two successful singles (“Heaven’s A Lie” and the recent “Swamped”), Comalies has been receiving heavy commercial radio rotation in major markets around the country, including WAAF (Boston), WLZR (Milwaukee), WIXQ (Grand Rapids), WTFX (Louisville), WCCC (Hartford), and many others. The effort recently cracked the Top 50 on the R&R Active Rock charts, and Billboard Magazine praised “Swamped” for its “rich, taut songwriting.” Along the P.O.D. tour trail, Lacuna Coil tamed renowned shock-jock Mancow with an acoustic performance on the syndicated program Mancow’s Morning Madhouse in Chicago. Videos for the two current singles are in repeat rotation on Fuse TV and MTV2, where Lacuna Coil recently co-hosted & performed acoustically on Headbanger’s Ball.

Cristina emotes on the wellspring of successes: “It’s amazing, especially being a European band and being from Italy, where the rock & metal roots are not that solid. It’s a great opportunity for us to be here, we’re getting a lot of wonderful reactions from the various crowds with all the bands we have played with, from Opeth to Anthrax to Type O Negative and most recently P.O.D.”

Cristina’s male vocal counterpart Andrea Ferro concurs: “It’s definitely a miracle for us to be having this kind of success, and we’re looking forward to the powerful energy exchange from the Ozzfest audience. It’s definitely one of the greatest moments in our career.”

Press has been captivated by the band as well. Entertainment Weekly acknowledged the band’s abilities by comparison to another quite popular female-fronted rock act: “If you like Evanescence, get wound up in Lacuna Coil – the group that some fans claim is their post-goth template.” Billboard Magazine noted them as “one of the larger success stories in metal this year.” And Revolver Magazine praised them wholly: “With so many bands adhering to predictable models, Lacuna Coil’s unique, diverse take on hard rock should make a satisfying alternative.” Metal Edge Magazine recently voted Cristina Scabbia “Female Performer of the Year.” They also awarded Lacuna Coil as the “Next Big Thing.”

In addition to Ozzfest, Lacuna Coil will be performing key regional one-off shows to entrench their sound further into America’s heart. To commemorate the band’s successes, Century Media Records has released a special 2-CD edition of Comalies, with the bonus disc featuring the following tracks (in addition to the videos for “Swamped” & “Heaven’s A Lie”):

Heaven’s A Lie (radio edit)
Senzafine (acoustic)
Swamped (radio edit)
Heaven’s A Lie (live acoustic on WAAF)
Heaven’s A Lie (acoustic)
Senzafine (live acoustic on WAAF)
Swamped (acoustic)
Aeon (live acoustic on WAAF)
Unspoken (acoustic)

Lacuna Coil also recently transcended to the realm of film, as their hit single “Swamped” will appear on the soundtrack to the forthcoming film Resident Evil: Apocalypse (released August 24th). The band is taking their love of films on the road as their tour bus is confirmed to be decked out with imagery from the upcoming Alien Vs. Predator movie.

Consistent touring, special radio promotions, and endorsements by Hot Topic clothing & merchandise, Initium Eyewear, Vision Streetwear, Vestal Watches, Jagermeister, Line 6 Amplification, Garrison Acoustic Guitars and ESP Guitars are just the beginning for Lacuna Coil, as Ozzfest yields a new chapter in what is quickly becoming a radiant career.
