LACUNA COIL has returned with the massively anticipated, new full-length release, "Shallow Life," which is set for an April 21st North American release. The album was recorded with acclaimed producer Don Gilmore (Avril Lavigne, Linkin Park, Pearl Jam) at the famed NRG Studios in Los Angeles. The group recently completed a new video for the Active Rock smash hit “Spellbound” that was shot in their hometown of Milan, Italy. The clip was directed by Saku, produced by Apnea Film and wardrobe was provided by Dolce & Gabbana.

You can watch the music video for “Spellbound” at ArtistDirect.com.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals) comments: “Hello to all the rockers out there. We're currently in Denver on the ‘Music as a Weapon IV’ tour and we're having a great time. It's just amazing for us to be able to test some of the new songs in front of so many new people and to see such great reactions.

“We had a great time shooting the video for ‘Spellbound’ and it also marks our first time working with acclaimed Italian director Saku in a location that's really peculiar. It was filmed in a very fashionable place: the restaurant ‘Gold’ located in Milan, Italy, which is owned by the fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana, who kindly gave us the permission to film over there!
The location provides the perfect atmosphere to express the ‘Shallow Life’ theme. Everything is really shiny and ‘bling bling’ and the band is performing in the middle of a golden room full of mirrors and giant chandeliers.”

LACUNA COIL will be performing some new material on this spring’s “Music As A Weapon IV” festival. LACUNA COIL joins such hard rock titans as Disturbed and Killswitch Engage crisscrossing the U.S. before finishing May 16th. The 38-city “Music As A Weapon IV” fest marks the group’s first run of North America in almost two years.

I have a weird weakness for this band...

They're not at all what I normally listen to but in terms of pop-heavy rock these guys have it. One of the only female fronted bands that don't make me (regularly) cringe or lol--big blatant and numerous choruses ftw.

Now Playing: Lacuna Coil - "Spellbound"

Good band, last disc was kind of a disappointment to me but still ok. Gotta love Cristina. I like studio tracks where the guy sings but he just fails live.

what do u thing of Straight Line Stitch? What I've heard sounds pretty good, nothing ground breaking or unique, but good.

*Also check out Deadlock. Think Lacuna Coil but heavier, faster.

np: Lacuna Coil - Tight Rope (should be watching tho)
