Currently celebrating their 20 year anniversary, Italian Metal icons LACUNA COIL and the band's long time label, Century Media, have decided that it is time to enter into another chapter in their relationship. Both parties are pleased to announce that Lacuna Coil have just signed a new deal with Century Media Records.
LACUNA COIL lead vocalist Cristina Scabbia shared her feelings on the band's continued partnership with their long standing label, stating: "I am so excited to have signed with Century Media again. Nowadays it is so important that, whichever label is backing up an artist or a band, one has full trust in the artistic and musical vision. I know that Lacuna Coil and Century Media will continue to work hard together to make common goals happen faster and more successfully."
Andrea Ferro (vocals) adds his thoughts: "We are really excited about starting this new adventure with Century Media Records. We've had some great 20 years together that helped us become an internationally successful band. Like in every relationship there have been ups and downs, but overall we've worked with some great people who have always been willing to grow up with the band and together we have achieved really amazing goals. Here's to another chapter about to start and more successful stories!"
Fresh, dark, and extremely powerful are only a few of the best ways to accurately describe LACUNA COIL's newest opus, Delirium, which encompasses the strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the 90's twisted with goth elements into a modern style.
Antje Lange, General Manager International of Century Media Records also commented on the label's new deal with Lacuna Coil, saying "Century Media Records is very happy that LACUNA COIL have renewed their contract with us and we are very much looking forward to the next albums from this exceptional Italian band. Century Media appreciates the continuous trust of the band. The recent album 'Delirium' charted in 12 countries and the band is touring around the globe."
In addition to re-signing with Century Media, LACUNA COIL recently announced that they will be joining Dutch symphonic metal giants Epica on the North American leg of the band's "Ultimate Principle" Tour. The month-long September trek marks the band's first US tour dates in over a year, as they continue to support their latest full length studio album, Delirium. Joining LACUNA COIL and Epica on the Ultimate Principle Tour are INSOMNIUM & Elantris.
