Taken from the upcoming and highly anticipated full length album “Karmacode” (to be released April 3rd) the song offers a perfect mixture of the bands best elements: Stunning vocals, dreamy melodies and powerful yet groovy guitars.

Cover art for Lacuna CoilÕs New Album Karmacode Now Available

Century Media have released the following to the press today:
The anticipation surrounding the release of the much anticipated new LACUNA COIL album, Karmacode, continues to build leading up to itÕs imminent release on April 4th.

Asterik Studio (Trapt, Funeral For A Friend, The Used), the Grammy-nominated design firm, handled the package design and layout. Their objective was to create a world that would reflect the albums theme and title. Andrea Ferro (vocals) describes the meaning behind the album’s unique title: When it came to coming up with an album title I wanted to combine one ‘old’ word that is spiritually connected with another that offers a link to our more ‘modern’ times. If there were an actual translation of Karmacode it would be something like ‘spiritual DNA and the message behind it.’ The title attempts to balance our modern, overwhelming, self-centered, fast-paced lifestyles and the desire we all have to live a more spiritual, more compassionate and more fulfilling life.”

Karmacode begins where the critically acclaimed Comalies album left off, and the album will further solidify their spot as one of the genres most dynamic and exhilarating artists.

 

‘Our Truth’ Review at Billboard.com

The Music Industry Entertainment site – billboard.com has reviewed Lacuna Coils single ‘Our Truth’, taken off the Underworld Evolution Soundtrack.
The reviewer, Christa L. Titus, has this to say about the first single released from the bands forthcoming album Karmacode:

One of the dark gems on the “Underworld: Evolution” soundtrack, “Our Truth” is the lead single from Lacuna Coil’s upcoming “Karmacode” (due April 4). The Italian band’s new album is one of the most anticipated metal releases of 2006, and by the sound of this track, the wait will be worth it. While it could hardly be considered a pop song, the hard-charging single, ready-made for the concert circuit, is certainly one of the group’s catchiest tracks. Crammed with hooks, the ripping guitars in “Our Truth” lean more on Lacuna Coil’s metal side, but the piece retains a gothic air. Singer Christina Scabbia (who shares vocal duties with Andrea Ferro) leads the way with her rich alto. This single will reignite the band’s U.S. presence, picking up where hits “Swamped” and “Heaven’s a Lie” left off.

The Underworld Evolution OST was released by Lakeshore Records on 10th January 2006.

LACUNA COIL Embark On A Massive U.S. Tour Direct Support To Rob Zombie

Century Media have released the following to the press:

“LACUNA COIL will embark on a massive six-week U.S. tour this March direct support to Rob Zombie. This trek, which kicks off in mid-March and runs through early May, will be the groupÕs first stateside run in support of their highly anticipated new album, Karmacode, which is set for an April 4th release. It will also be the first time the band has played in the U.S. since their successful Ozzfest 2004 run.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals) describes her excitement over the upcoming tour: ÒWell, I canÕt even count the times I said ÔWow, weÕre so excited about this upcoming tour!Õ I mean we all know how much Rob influenced the scene and how great his live shows are. We definitely can’t wait to share the stage with him and his band. I’m sure it’ll be a great experience. It’ll be the perfect occasion for us to present the new songs from Karmacode to the fans. This new album is killer and you won’t believe your ears. You guys never let us down and we can’t wait to see you all. It’s been a long time and LACUNA COIL is more than ready to come back!Ó

Scabbia also graces the cover of this month’s Revolver magazine’s “Hottest Women In Metal” issue and the inaugural issue of Virus magazine while Alternative Press named Karmacode as “One of the most anticipated releases of 2006.Ó Be sure to pickup all three issues on stands now.

The albumÕs lead track, ÒOur Truth,Ó received its worldwide debut on the Underworld: Evolution soundtrack, where it appeared alongside such acclaimed artists as Puscifer (Maynard KennanÕs [Tool, A Perfect Circle] new project), Chester Bennington (Linkin Park), Slipknot, My Chemical Romance, Atreyu and more. A video for the track was shot in Los Angeles by Fort Awesome, a brand-new directorial duo whose individual credits include Queens of the Stone Age, Linkin Park, Disturbed, Chevelle and more. Look for it to make its Fuse and MTV2 debut in mid March.

LACUNA COIL initially left their mark on the hard rock scene in 2004 with their acclaimed album, Comalies, which opened several opportunities for them that were previously thought unattainable for an Italian band, such as two highly successful commercial radio campaigns alongside a breakthrough Ozzfest appearance resulting in over 500,000 copies sold worldwide with a quarter of a million in the U.S. alone.”

The full dates for the tour will be posted once they are confirmed.
