Italian rock/metal act LACUNA COIL will make its return to North America in July when it is scheduled to embark on a five-week headlining trek with KILL HANNAH, SEVENTH VOID and DOMMIN. The tour will mark the group's first headlining tour of North America in over two years, so it is definitely going to be a must-see event. Diehard fans can rejoice as this will be their chance to finally see the band perform an hour-plus set consisting of many tracks from the group's new album, "Shallow Life", alongside some older classics.Commented male vocalist Andrea Ferro: "We just got back from the great adventure that was the Music As A Weapon IV tour in the States and let me tell you: our fans are the best! Regardless of these hard times with the economy, they were out there night after night to support live music, ready to rock out and have a good time! We couldn't have asked for a better start for the 'Shallow Life' touring cycle and we really want to take the time to thank DISTURBED and all of the traveling parties to make it such a great ride. June is coming and we're getting ready for the summer festival madness around Europe and to embrace all of our European fans and friends. We're gonna debut some new songs together with our old material and it's gonna be awesome! Shortly after that, we'll be back in North America for the first leg of the American Spellbound Tour. We will be hitting a lot of towns and territories that we weren't able to on Music As A Weapon and sharing the stage with old-time friends SEVENTH VOID, our new friends KILL HANNAH and DOMMIN. We are looking forward to having a blast as always in the U.S. and are sure you will too. Make sure to get your ticket soon and be ready to rock!"
