LACUNA COIL interviewed on METAL Injection

At a recent Ozzfest stop, “Metal Injection” interviewed LACUNA COIL co-vocalists Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro. Many topics were discussed, and here are some excerpts:

On whether Cristina feels any pressure in terms of being a female role model:

Cristina: “Not at all, there are many bands in Europe with a female in the lineup. So when we came here and found all the extra attention of me being in the band we were like, ‘What’s weird about that?’ It just wasn’t an issue for us. Of course, I’m happy there are more girls in the scene, but I honestly don’t pay attention to it.”

On balancing home life and life on the road:

Andrea: “It’s something you learn how to do step by step. The more you do it, the more you learn. It’s also important to have people at home who understand what you’re doing and tolerate your time away. It’s a trust issue. But actually, in Italy the situation is changing a lot, we’re getting much more recognition, so even when we’re home, it’s still about the band.”

Opinions about touring America:

Cristina: “We definitely like it, because its much more comfortable to tour here, the buses are bigger, you can make a pit stop in the middle of the night, there is always a truck stop or something, so it’s pretty cool.”
