LACUNA COIL just embarked on a U.S. tour as direct support to IN FLAMES with THE SWORD and SEEMLESS in the support slots. The group recently completed a highly successful run on the annual Blackest of the Black Tour alongside the legendary DANZIG, labelmates THE HAUNTED, BELPHEGOR, and ASESINO. This is their groupâ€™s third U.S. run in support of Karmacode, their highly praised new album.
Andrea Ferro (male vocals) checks in with the following report: â€œBlackest of The Black was a good experience, and we were especially excited to have a chance to tour again alongside our party bros Kenny and Johnny from TYPE O NEGATIVE, who helped out DANZIG on this tour. We also had the chance to hit some places we never played before like Spokane, Santa Cruz, Tucson and Fresno, which were all amazing. The peopleâ€™s reactions were simply awesome. The last day in Santa Cruz, DANZIG cancelled so we had to take the role of the headliner, which was all together a really cool experience.
â€œThis led us immediately into two really packed headlining shows in Mexico, where we were met with first class treatment. We haven’t played there since 2001, when we opened for THEATRE OF TRAGEDY. We did a signing session the first day and stayed for almost two hours. Eventually we had to leave, and the fans were following us grabbing our hair and screaming. We felt like the BEATLES in the â€˜60s! Both shows were truly amazing, and even if the technical conditions were not really appropriate, the crowd brought everything to a magic level. It’s always amazing how much these people appreciate the fact that you come to their country, they always have such a great time.
â€œWe just began the final portion of our touring for the year after joining up with IN FLAMES, SEEMLESS, and THE SWORD. The first gig in Norfolk was very good, with a lot of people jumping and screaming, so things are already off to a really positive start. Rock on, and we will see you soon.â€
