LACUNA COIL's previously announced Australian tour, which was scheduled to take place in June, has been cancelled "due to matters completely beyond our control," according to a statement released by the band. "However, we are thrilled to announce that we will be coming back to Australia this coming February to perform at the Soundwave 2009 festival! We love Australia, and can't wait to rock with all of our amazing friends Down Under again!"LACUNA COIL has started work on a DVD project which is tentatively scheduled to be released later this year. The DVD will be a retrospective of all things from the band's "Karmacode" album cycle. It will include promotional videos, spectacularly remixed professionally shot festival appearances, behind-the-scenes travel documentaries and home videos and a few other fan-friendly surprises! This will be the first "official" LACUNA COIL DVD release. As previously reported, LACUNA COIL vocalist Cristina Scabbia recently confirmed that she will perform with Finnish cello quartet APOCALYPTICA at this year's Download festival on Sunday, June 15 at Donington Park, Leicestershire, UK. Cristina will sing the epic ballad "S.O.S. (Anything But Love)", which was featured on APOCALYPTICA's new album, "Worlds Collide", and was released as a single earlier this year, accompanied by a suitably dark and lavish video. "S.O.S. (Anything But Love)" was also featured in the new motion picture "Stone's War" a science-fiction war movie based on a story of Finnish soldiers during World War 2. LACUNA COIL is currently working on its highly anticipated new album, the follow-up to 2006's "Karmacode".
