March 26, 2021, 6 months ago
In the clip below, Lacuna Coil vocalist Cristina Scabbia joins The Pit's podcast Last Words to set the record straight about the band's recent controversial silent concert, keeping inspired during quarantine, and supporting the arts in Italy.
Cristina reveals that in spite of the forced downtime due to the pandemic, Lacuna Coil has not been working on new music.
"To be honest, we don't want any of our music to be connected with this period. It wasn't something that we wanted to talk about. Of course, unconsciously it will be inspiring us for the next record. The thing is, when you write a new record you're inspired by somethig, but if you don't travel, if you don't live experiences, if you don't meet new people and new cultures... I find it hard to find inspiration only through movies and TV. I need to live to be inspired, and same for the guys (in the band)."
Announcing the Official Lacuna Coil tabletop game, Horns Up!
Horns Up! is a tabletop (or better yet, concert floor) party game in pure rock style. Members of the world famous Italian band are known for being avid gamers, but Horns Up! marks their first foray in the Gaming Industry itself.
The game itself takes place at a Lacuna Coil show, where each player must fight his or her way to be the first to reach the stage. There will obviously be many "friendship-threatening" actions challenging the opponents.
Lacuna Coil band members will be an active presence in the game: they are depicted on the Stage Cards, and each of these will have consequences on the whole audience. The rules of the game are easy to understand, and each game will be able to host a maximum of 9 players.
The illustrations for the whole project belong to the talented Sara Fornì, who has quite a record for books and games illustrations. This is not the first time the band from Milan enters the geek world: they already made their appearance on multiple covers of Batman comics and they are always present at Lucca Comics and Games events.
The card game Horns Up! will be made in partnership with Labmasu Games and presented in a pre-order campaign that will be launched on Friday, March 26 here. The pre-order campaign will be live worldwide and as the number of requested copies rises, the project will become more developed, with new events and new expansions. Shipping Worldwide from November 2021.
