Century Media reports today:
LACUNA COIL has had an extremely successful 2004 as they emerged as this yearÕs Ozzfest breakthrough artist and watched their latest album, Comalies, break the 150,000 SoundScan mark in the U.S. The group consistently outsold every Ozzfest band (minus Slipknot) each week with the oldest release of any second stage act. Even mainstage acts Black Label Society, Superjoint Ritual and Dimmu Borgir weekly album sales combined were surpassed by LACUNA COILÕs weekly sales alone. All of this coupled with the commercial radio support of their latest single ÒSwampedÓ helped the album even crack the coveted Billboard Top 200 chart at #178. Comalies continues to SoundScan a steady 5,000 units per week.
LACUNA COIL was just hailed as one of the ÒTen Bands To WatchÓ by Rolling Stone magazine in their next issue, which hits newsstands on Sept. 23rd. Cristina Scabbia (vocals) also caught the attention of Stuff magazine who dedicated a two-page feature to her in their September issue. The groupÕs hit single, ÒSwampedÓ is currently featured on the Resident Evil: Apocalypse Soundtrack and the Vampire: Bloodlines videogame.
Great news for Lacuna Coil, and look out for September’s Rolling Stone Magazine on the 23rd.
