Lacuna Coil has had an extremely successful 2004 as they emerged as this year’s Ozzfest breakthrough artist and watched their latest album, "Comalies," break the 150,000 SoundScan mark in the U.S. The group consistently outsold every Ozzfest band (minus Slipknot) each week with the oldest release of any second stage act. Even mainstage acts Black Label Society, Superjoint Ritual and Dimmu Borgir weekly album sales combined were surpassed by Lacuna Coil's weekly sales alone. All of this coupled with the commercial radio support of their latest single “Swamped” helped the album even crack the coveted Billboard Top 200 chart at #178. Comalies continues to SoundScan a steady 5,000 units per week.
Lacuna Coil was just hailed as one of the “Ten Bands To Watch” by Rolling Stone magazine in their next issue, which hits newsstands on Sept. 23rd. Cristina Scabbia (vocals) also caught the attention of Stuff magazine who dedicated a two-page feature to her in their September issue. The group’s hit single, “Swamped,” is currently featured on the "Resident Evil: Apocalypse Soundtrack" and the Vampire: Bloodlines videogame.
