LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia has finished her design of a ring for Seventh Cirlce Artworks and the master will be cast in silver tomorrow. More details about the official launch date soon.
Scabbia comments about the design: “Can't wait to show you what mine and Alex Palmer's mind came up with... be patient a little more!”
Lacuna Coil have been at work recording their upcoming album with producer Jay Baumgardner, who has previously worked with diverse artists such as P.O.D, SEVENDUST, EVANESCENCE AND PAPA ROACH, just to mention a few.
After the first days of recording the band were already happy with the magic happening in the studio:
Cristina Scabbia: “I am so excited to work on new stuff… I am sure a lot of people will be mesmerized by the cinematic vibe of the new album that’s underway. I'm very happy to have the chance to work with Jay. Not only is he a pro in what he does, but I am just loving the fact we are going to experiment with new sounds and are getting a different point of view about our art. We're swamped with the music already... Lacuna Coil is back baby!!!”
Andrea Ferro (vocals): “We met Jay a few years ago in L.A. and had a really positive feeling about him, as he has produced and mixed some of my favourite records and some very relevant rock/metal albums. We have decided to work with him, because he has the ability to work together with the band towards a common vision without driving the band away from their sound. In the studio there is the right energy that allows common people to achieve uncommon results!”
Cristiano “Pizza” Migliore (guitars): Yeah, and we’re very excited about finally recording new songs - and I can assure you that the new stuff kicks ass!”
