Tomorrow marks the release of melodic hard rock band Sevendust’s ninth studio album Black Out The Sun, which is the followup to 2010’s Cold Day Memory. In anticipation of this release, we got the opportunity to do a one-on-one chat with singer Lajon Witherspoon to discuss the album, touring with Coal Chamber, Lacuna Coil, and Candlelight Red, the 1999 show with Metallica in Detroit, and more. We also got to ask if Witherspoon had ever encountered any racism during their career as well as Lajon’s love of horror. You can check it all out below

Metal band Sevendust have announced that they will be touring N. American this Spring on a co-headlining run with the reunited nu-metal band Coal Chamber. Italian melodic metal band Lacuna Coil have been announced as direct support with Candlelight Red opening on the first half and Stolen Babies opening up on the second. The full touring schedule can be seen below.
Italian melodic metal group Lacuna Coil have released an official video for “In The End”, which comes off their album Dark Adrenaline. Directed by Roberto Cinardi, who worked with the band previously on the “Spellbound” and “I Won’t Tell You” videos, the video shows singers Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro in various classically-inspired outfits. It’s a slow video, one that is more hypnotic than exciting, which works well for the music. Also, anyone who designs costumes or does set design for theater will probably love this video. Check it out below. READ MORE
Italian melodic hard rockers Lacuna Coil have announced an early 2013 US tour alongside Sevendust. The band will be touring in support of their most recent album Dark Adrenaline, which came out Jan. 23rd of this year. You can see the tour schedule below.
I’ve seen Lacuna Coil three times: once at Harpos in Detroit, once at the Agora Ballroom in Cleveland (along with Tapping The Vein and Daylight Dies!), and lastly at an acoustic show in downtown Ann Arbor at Borders store #1. Basically, I haven’t seen them since 2005, so it’d be interesting to check them out after all these years to see what their show is like now. READ MORE
I’m one of those guys who pops in a foreign horror movie into my DVD player (I still haven’t upgraded to Blu-Ray. Shove off.) and makes sure that it’s set to English subtitles and the original language as my audio. I’d rather read the text at the bottom of the screen than see mouths move without the words matching. That throws me off more than anything else.
But the main reason I do this is because I love hearing the languages of the world. I want to hear the difference between Spanish and Portuguese. I want to hear how Serbian is different from Russian (True story: Since I know a bit of Russian, I was actually able to understand several words and phrases in A Serbian Film). It’s so exciting to hear the flow and intonations of other languages and it makes the world a much richer place for me.
The same thing applies to my love of music. I love hearing people sing in different languages because it makes it that much more of an adventure. While I may not understand what they are saying (that’s why translations are available), their passion and the musical flow of their voice is so enchanting that I’m hooked. READ MORE
This is just too good of a story to not be shared. Apparently, a 28-year old woman attended the Chicago Gigantour show, which featured Megadeth, Motorhead, Lacuna Coil, and Volbeat. During the show, she encountered a strapping young lad and the two proceeded to engage in…shall we say illicit behavior in one of the bathroom stalls. Fast forward and she finds out she is pregnant and is trying to reach the father through the majestical land of Craigslist. I’m not joking. Read on for the full posting. READ MORE
Back in 2005, I was lucky enough to go and check out the first ever Gigantour, the here-and-there summer festival started by Megadeth. Needless to say, for the ticket price (I think it was something like $25), I definitely got my money’s worth. Now, Megadeth has announced that they are resurrecting the tour. However, some things have changed: First of all, it’s not going to be in the summer. Rather, the tour will start towards the end of January and run through early March. Second, there apparently won’t be a full day of music. Instead, only three other bands will be joining Megadeth on stage: Motorhead, Volbeat, and Lacuna Coil. Tour dates have yet to be announced, so keep an eye on Megadeth.com.
Italian female-fronted rock group Lacuna Coil have finalized a release date for Dark Adrenaline, their newest album. The album will be coming out Jan. 24th, 2012 and the first single, Trip The Darkness, will be coming out Oct. 10th. The album is produced by Don Gilmore, who has worked with Linkin Park, Good Charlotte, and Bullet For My Valentine.
Although Italian female-fronted rockers Lacuna Coil have moved back the release of their upcoming album Dark Adrenaline to an undetermined 2012 release date, they still want fans to hear some new material. If you’re one of these die-hard “Coil-ers” [Ed. Note: I'm taking credit for that], the mark Oct. 17th (Europe)/Oct. 18th (US) on your calendar. On those dates, the band will be releasing their first single, Trip The Darkness. The band will also be hitting the road with a slew of Italian headline dates as well as a few stops elsewhere in Europe. Tour dates are after the jump.
Italian melodic metal band Lacuna Coil has been keeping kind of quiet for the past few months, emerging only to release the name of their upcoming album, Dark Adrenaline, which is slated for an early 2012 release. I’ll be perfectly honest, Comalies was the last album of theirs that I really enjoyed, so I’m hoping that the new album is a return to that form OR something totally unexpected and badass.

The video is directed by Nigel Crane (Lacuna Coil, Slipknot, Pitchshifter). Here is what singer Warrel Dane had to say about the shoot:
Italy’s greatest musical export, LACUNA COIL, will make their much anticipated return to North America on May 4th as they embark on a slew of major commercial radio sponsored festivals alongside such major acts as Seether, Five Finger Death Punch, Hellyeah and Drowning Pool. They will also be performing at Rocklahoma on May 30th and are also going to fill in the gaps between these fests with some headlining club appearances. This will lead them directly into their first trek to South America. Be sure to visit http://www.myspace.com/lacunacoil to view their complete touring itinerary.
