Lacuna Coil co-vocalist Cristina Scabbia was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend. Fresh off the "Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock" tour, Scabbia talked about the trek, the band's transition after having two members retire and channeling her own personal struggles into the band's songwriting. If you missed Jackie’s show, here’s her full interview with Lacuna Coil's Cristina Scabbia.
First off, congrats to Korn, as their song 'Spike in My Veins' just earned its fifth consecutive victory in the Cage Match to land it in the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With the song retiring from competition, that means we have two new hard rocking heavyweights ready to enter the battle.
These are interesting times for Lacuna Coil, as the band has just released 'Broken Crown Halo,' but done so as two of the group's longtime members have decided to retire from the band. However, the transition appears to be going well, as the group just took part in the 'Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock' tour leading into the release of their album.
The year is young, but it's already been quite the roller-coaster ride for Lacuna Coil. Not only are the Italian metallers gearing up for the release of the new album ‘Broken Crown Halo’ (due out April 1), they recently announced the retirement of their longtime guitarist Cris “Pizza” Migliore and drummer Cristiano “Criz” Mozzati. Not to mention, Lacuna Coil are also a part of Revolver’s Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour.
