Inspired by the overwhelming feedback to their last album “Dark Adrenaline” that was released in January 2012 LACUNA COIL were itching to attack their next album. The Italian sextet has recently started recording their upcoming album with producer Jay Baumgardner, who has previously worked with diverse artists such as P.O.D, Sevendust, Evanescence and Papa Roach, just to mention a few.
After the first days of recording the band is already happy with the magic happening in the studio:
Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “I am so excited to work on new stuff… I am sure a lot of people will be mesmerized by the cinematic vibe of the new album that’s underway. I’m very happy to have the chance to work with Jay. Not only is he a pro in what he does, but I am just loving the fact we are going to experiment with new sounds and are getting a different point of view about our art. We’re swamped with the music already… LACUNA COIL is back baby!!!”
Andrea Ferro (vocals): “We met Jay a few years ago in L.A. and had a really positive feeling about him, as he has produced and mixed some of my favourite records and some very relevant rock/metal albums. We have decided to work with him, because he has the ability to work together with the band towards a common vision without driving the band away from their sound. In the studio there is the right energy that allows common people to achieve uncommon results!”
Cristiano “Pizza” Migliore (guitars): “Yeah, and we’re very excited about finally recording new songs – and I can assure you that the new stuff kicks ass!”
The band plans on being done with the recording before joining the upcoming “Tragic Illusion Tour” that is celebrating Paradise Lost’s 25th anniversary. A few days earlier they will guest at Metal Female Voices Festival in Belgium.
