As Italy's metal maestros Lacuna Coil put the final touches on their long-awaited new album Shallow Life – scheduled for an April 21st debut in the US – they've given the fans a little tease by posting the first single...
...'Spellbound' on their official MySpace . The new song's only been up for a day or so, but it's already racked up over 22,000 plays as of this writing.
"Shallow Life is a natural metamorphosis from within the band,” explains foxy frontwoman Cristina Scabbia. “We explored different musical territories while maintaining our own style... the album production is incredibly powerful and has a beautiful purity to it. Hopefully listeners will feel the same sort of connection that we have to these songs.”
Scabbia and company will be touring extensively this year in support of the album, as part of the fourth 'Music As A Weapon' Tour (one of the largest scheduled North American music events for 2009), sharing the main stage with rock heavyweights like Disturbed, Killswitch Engage, and Chimaira. The festival will also incorporate a series of extreme sports events, including freestyle and half-pipe competitions, and a traveling tattoo exhibition.
