THE HAUNTED and BELPHEGOR have been added to Glen Danzig‘s Blackest of the Black tour featuring DANZIG and Italy’s LACUNA COIL. The 2006 edition of Blackest of the Black is tentatively a West Coast-only tour for two weeks in November. Dates to be announced.
Due to overwhelming demand, LACUNA COIL will return to the U.S. this November as direct support to DANZIG as part of the next incarnation of his highly successful Blackest of The Black tour. This is the group’s third U.S. run in support of Karmacode, their highly praised new album and will wrap up a highly successful year, which saw numerous highlights such as a main stage Ozzfest slot, a sold-out tour with ROB ZOMBIE, a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live and a Top 30 Active Rock hit single with the track “Our Truth.”
The band says, “We initially planned to headline the U.S. this fall, but DANZIG made us an offer we couldn’t refuse, so we postponed our headlining plans until January. We can’t wait to return to America with another true legend.”
This tour also coincides with the launch of the group’s new single for the track, “Closer,” the third single from Karmacode. The radio mix and edit of “Closer” was done by Brian Malouf (MICHAEL JACKSON, MADONNA, PEARL JAM), and the captivating video for the track, completed by the directorial team Fort Awesome (who also shot the group’s acclaimed “Our Truth” clip) can be viewed here.
Furthermore, LACUNA COIL has been nominated for the “Best Italian Act” award at the MTV European Music Awards 2006.
