LACUNA COIL to release their latest full-length effort, Karmacode, on April 4th via Media Records. The highly anticipated follow-up to their acclaimed commercial breakthrough album, Comalies, was co-produced by Waldemar Sorychta and LACUNA COIL in Germany and Italy while the album was both mixed by Ronald Prent and mastered by Darcy Proper at Galaxy Studios in Belgium. Asterik Studio, the Grammy-nominated design firm, is handling the package design for Karmacode.
Says vocalist Cristina Scabbia, “I imagine it’s easy for everyone to understand how truly exited we are for the world to hear the new material. It’ll give everyone the chance to hear the growth that the band has experienced over the past couple of years. I simply cannot wait to get out and play the new songs live, there will definitely be a lot of energy coming from the stage next year!”
Guitarist Cristiano Migliore adds, “It’s taken a long time to put together these songs and I can say they’re the best ones we’ve ever written! Working with old friends as well as new ones has been incredibly exciting and we had the chance to mix in one of the best studios in the world so, really, what else could we ask for? I’m definitely sure our fans will love the music just as much as they’ll love the artwork that Asterik has created for Karmacode!”

It’s also going to be a great chance to see what people think of the new stuff! Let’s keep our fingers crossed!”
A video for “Our Truth” was shot in Los Angeles by Fort Awesome, a brand-new directorial duo, whose individual directing credits include QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, LINKIN PARK, DISTURBED, and more. “The experience of shooting the video was a wonderful one, for sure” adds Cristina, “Both the band and the crew worked from sunset to sunrise in the Hollywood Hills, remaining 100% focused and after all was said and done we believe we pulled off a masterpiece of a video we’re sure everyone’s going to love.”
