LACUNA COIL Working On New Material Inspired By Comalies

The band has been writing quite a bit of late.

Italian gothic metal unit Lacuna Coil are out promoting their forthcoming release Comalies XX—the "deconstructed and transported" version of their third LP, Comalies, which was originally released in 2002. A new version of the track "Tight Rope" can be heard here just below, but don't be surprised if some brand new music and a new LP from the band are on the near horizon.

In an interview with radio station KNAC, singer Cristina Scabbia said, "We actually wrote a few songs. We have, like five [or] six songs that we're working on, but it was not time yet to release a full record. Also because we really base our inspiration on life, on experiences, and, to be honest, we didn't want to write a record about the pandemic. We wanted to go out again, meet people, live experiences, live life and get ready to bring everything in our music again. So we collected a ton of material."

Singer Andrea Ferro also added, "But definitely going back to work on Comalies sometimes brings you also some memories of how your feelings were when you brought that album. So that could be inspiration also for an eventual next album when we're gonna go work on it. Maybe some of the atmosphere stays with you, because you've been rethinking it and reworking it. So it can give you some inspiration also for a future record."

Lacuna Coil is also now streaming their rework of the 2002 single "Swamped" named "Swamped XX." The new version is from the coming Comalies XX project, and as Scabbia recently pointed out, Comalies XX isn't just a re-recording of the album, but an entire reimagining of the original songs to fit their 2022 sound. We can't wait to hear how this one turns out!
