Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL have recruited Los Angeles-based musician Daniel Sahagún (BLACK LODGE) as a fill-in guitarist for the band following the recent departure of Marco "Maus" Biazzi.
Sahagún previously played bass for LACUNA COIL in 2014 when the band's bassist and main songwriter Marco "Maki" Coti-Zelati was sick and unable to tour with the group.
Daniel made his live debut as LACUNA COIL's guitarist during this past weekend's 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
Said LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia: "[Daniel] came on the cruise to play with us, but he is not the new member of LACUNA COIL (still part of the family, though!)."
Biazzi left LACUNA COIL in January, explaining in a statement: "I felt I couldn't add more in this project any longer so I decided to leave my second family, LACUNA COIL, to take a different path for a new challenge in my life.
LACUNA COIL will tentatively release its new album, "Delirium", in May via Century Media. The CD was recorded at BRX Studio in Milan with producer Marco "Maki" Coti-Zelati, with engineering by Marco Barusso and additional assistance from Dario Valentini.
"Delirium" is LACUNA COIL's first album to featuring American drummer Ryan Blake Folden, who has been touring with the band since 2012.
LACUNA COIL in February 2014 parted ways with guitarist Cris "Pizza" Migliore and drummer Cristiano "Criz" Mozzati.
