Lacuna Coil Release Video “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You”

After launching a video clip for the song “Blood, Tears, Dust”  LACUNA COIL are revealing the full story of their two conceptual videos with their latest clip for the song “You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You”. Like “Blood, Tears, Dust” the video was directed and edited by Cosimo Alemà and produced by the production company Borotalco.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “The videos we shot with Cosimo Alemà are exactly what we wanted to deliver visually, especially if connected with a record like ’Delirium’. The darkness, the intensity, the script itself are taking the viewer to the dimension we wanted to be transported to. ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’ and ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ are tightened together in a twisted story that I like a lot as there is so much that can be defined with each one’s imagination. Interpreting different characters was also exciting, an interesting challenge I hadn’t faced until then. I hope the viewers can capture the magic we breathed while we shot them.”

Andrea Ferro (vocals): “Every age has its form of storytelling, and video clips have been a huge part of our culture. Talking with Cosimo (Alemà/director) and our label we decided to create something to bring back the artistic quality video clips used to have. We put our love for cinema into our video for the song ‘You Love Me ‘Cause I Hate You’, as you will see there is a clear inspiration from TV series like ‘True Detective’ and also a certain ‘Twin Peaks’/’Resident Evil’ vibe. We wanted the viewers to contemplate the story and question what it really means. There is also a tight connection with the previous video for the song ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’ as both clips should be considered almost as one single piece. The videos clearly explore the main theme of our latest album, ‘Delirium’, and all its madness and symbols. It’s been a really great and challenging experience to be on the set for several days and work in ‘cinema style’ for the very first time to create something completely new for LACUNA COIL.”

Lacuna Coil Release Blood, Tears, Dust Video

Lacuna Coil have released a new video today –

“Right now we can’t tell you everything about ‘Blood, Tears, Dust’, as this video is part of something bigger… This is the core of who we are as a band: the sweat, the dirt, the raw energy. It’s our insanity and all of us feeling comfortable with it. We love how Cosimo Alemà filmed this, the photography, the colors and the hints in the story are perfectly placed and it’s the first time we’re really ‘acting’. This video is only a part of a much bigger plan… stay tuned. Hope you enjoy this video as much as we do!”
