Lacuna Coil will return to Australia in October for their first headline tour in support of their eighth studio album, Delirium. Lacuna Coil are best known for the dual male/female vocals of Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro; a combination that forms the most effervescent one-two vocal punch in rock. Their Gothic imagery, down-tuned sonics and creative use of synths created a metal sub-genre all of its own and a group that has influenced several generations of bands since they formed in 1994.
Their eighth studio album, Delirium, will be released on May 27 via Century Media/Sony Music Australia. The band say that Delirium is “about the horrors that we must face in evertday life by exploring the unknown, and to one day, hopefully find a cure.”
Co-vocalist Cristina Scabbia also weighs in on what we can expect from the new album: “Delirium is a new wave of confidence, a renewed essence and pure drops of energy sweating out of our pores. I can’t wait to show it to all my friends and welcome you all once again in our family. Trust me, this is a Delirium you will feel the NEED to be part of.”
This is Lacuna Coil’s first visit to Australia since their appearance at the now defunct Soundwave Festival in 2009.
