Lacuna Coil's critically acclaimed album, "Comalies," has just surpassed the 200,000 U.S. SoundScan plateau. This marks the first time a Century Family artist has reached this illustrious benchmark. The accomplishment comes on the heels of the Active Rock radio success of the powerful singles “Heaven’s A Lie” and “Swamped,” which also exploded at Fuse and MTV2. The group spent the past two years touring relentlessly with the likes of Anthrax, Opeth, P.O.D. and Type O Negative only to emerge as Ozzfest 2004’s breakout artist after consistently outselling all other second stage acts each week. Led by the undeniably captivating Cristina Scabbia (vocals), the group garnered mainstream acclaim from such publications as Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone and Stuff, among others.

Lacuna Coil are currently in the pre-production phase for the highly anticipated follow-up to Comalies with longtime producer Waldemar Sorychta (Sentenced, Moonspell). Cristina checks in with the following report on the band’s songwriting progress: “We are working on the new stuff and I can tell you it is definitely killer! We are really proud of the new songs and we are still composing new material. We plan on presenting some of the new tracks this summer at festivals around Europe; check out the dates at http://www.lacunacoil.it and http://www.emptyspiral.net. Thanks for the great support you've given us since we started. We love you and we are ready to come back to kick some serious ass!”
