According to Bravewords.com, Metal Symphony recently caught up with LACUNA COIL vocalist Cristina Scabbia. An excerpt from the interview is available below:
M.S: As you usually do, you’ve been touring in the US once again, do you consider there’s some point at which you feel more supported in the US than in Europe? What can you recall of this last tour?
Scabbia: “I think we pretty much have the same support from both sides of the ocean. The States are bigger so when we tour there, tours are longer and we need to stay there a lot, but we also have a great following in Europe.I am so happy about the fact that we can connect to so many people I’ve never even met. Music is magical.”
M.S: Next October you’ll join the line-up of the MFVF in Belgium. After 11 years of this festival, what do you think it still has to offer to the audience?
Scabbia: “The bands are quite different every edition so there is always a surprise in terms of newcomers or new shows given by the most known acts. If you like bands fronted women this is definitely the place to be, and is also something unique in the world!
M.S: On your side, what will you offer MFVF’s audience? Last year you were there to celebrate its 10th anniversary, will this year’s show be different from that one? Will you gift us with a new song maybe?
Scabbia: We played last year and it was a success, so we’ve been invited again and decided to do something we’ve never done before, play one complete album from the past. We will be playing ALL the songs from the album Karmacode, plus some more…”

Lacuna Coil 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.
