Lacuna Coil Reveal Second Leg of 2016 North American Tour Dates
Lacuna Coil are starting to roll out their plans for supporting their new Delirium album. The band recently revealed their first North American tour dates in support of the disc, and now they've tacked on a second leg.
The band will be joined by Stitched Up Heart, who replace Butcher Babies as direct support from the first leg, while 9Electric and Painted Wives will remain in the support slots. The newly announced second leg kicks off May 31 in Chicago and keeps the band on tour into mid-June. See all of their shows below.
Singer Cristina Scabbia states, "Everything feels different this time in the Lacuna Coil camp. It's something I can hear it and something I can breath. A new wave of confidence, a renewed essence and pure drops of energy sweating out of our pores. I can't wait to show it to all my friends and welcome you all once again in our family. Trust me, this is a Delirium you will feel the NEED to be part of."
Co-vocalist Andrea Ferro further adds, "Delirium is not the beginning of a new chapter in Lacuna Coil's life; it is the beginning of a new book! We're really excited about starting this touring cycle with such a fresh vibe, meeting old and new friends around the U.S. and get such great touring companions. We're just writing the first page of this book and it is already a crazy one."
Guitarist-bassist Marco Coti-Zelati continues, "We’re all super excited to finally be coming back to the U.S. and we’re ready to kick some asses with the greatest album that we’ve ever made! New lineup, new sound, a new vibe and new emotions. I can’t wait to see the reactions from the audiences when they hear the Delirium songs played for the first time. Fresh, dark and powerful emotions all at the same time. The strength and heavy approach of thrash metal from the ‘90s -- in a modern style. To me, this is the album that I think will be exciting to both of our older AND newer fans. I’m excited, and ready to have some fun on stage, while we spread the Delirium to the people."
Drummer Ryan Blake Folden concludes, "For me, I am truly excited to get on the road and play some new material. This is the first record I got to be a part of with the band and I can’t wait to finally see people reactions to songs that I have been really excited about for over a year now. Not to mention, I’ll finally be expressing myself on stage in a way that I haven't been able to do in some time, having up until this point performed music that predated my arrival to the band. With the manifestation of the theme, costumes and artwork, along with the music, the band creatively and passionately poured itself into making this something special."
Look for Lacuna Coil's Delirium arriving on May 27 via Century Media.
