LACUNA COIL's First-Ever Book, 'Nothing Stands In Our Way', To Arrive In November

Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL will release their first-ever book, titled "Nothing Stands In Our Way", on November 28 via Rocket 88, one of music's most innovative publishing houses.

Published to celebrate the band's 20th anniversary, "Nothing Stands In Our Way" contains rare and candid photographs, memorabilia and personal artefacts from the collections of founding members Cristina Scabbia, Andrea Ferro and Marco Coti Zelati. Among the wealth of photographs in the book are baby pics, 1990s skater poses, pre-LACUNA COIL performance shots, and tons of backstage scenes from the past two decades.

Andrea, Maki and Cristina tell the band's story in the first person, beginning with their early life, teen years, key musical influences, personal record collections and details of how they met. It goes on to describe how LACUNA COIL formed, found success and became the global phenomenon that they are today.

Says Scabbia: "I'm so excited to share what the last 20 years of my life were made of! It has been an awesome journey so far and so much happened, it was almost impossible to remember it all. You all know a lot about us, but there is SO much more we never said and showed before. Now the time is right to do it. Our backstages and living rooms will open up for you all… you're welcome, coilers, come in and get comfortable… Once upon a time…"

"Nothing Stands In Our Way" is available in two distinct editions: The Classic is a 224-page, 200-plus-image-filled hardback with foil detailing and retails at £35/$45; the Signature is the same hardback in a deluxe clamshell box, signed by the band, with four exclusive, original art prints created by Marco Zela Coti, and retails at £100/$130.

"Nothing Stands In Our Way" is only available at LacunaCoilBook.com.

Ferro told the Impact metal channel that LACUNA COIL fans will have to wait at least until next year for the follow-up to 2016's "Delirium" album.

"Delirium" entered the Billboard 200 chart at position No. 33 with first-week sales of just over 13,000 units — nearly all from pure album sales. The set followed the No. 27-peaking "Broken Crown Halo", which also opened with around 13,000 copies back in 2014.
