LACUNA COIL Checks In With OZZFEST Report

LACUNA COIL continues to mesmerize the masses on the main stage of this year's Ozzfest, further defining their status as one of today's premiere hard rock acts. The massive summer trek coincided with the release of the new single "Enjoy The Silence" (DEPECHE MODE cover), which is currently making big waves at Active Rock radio. The video for the track, completed by the directorial team Fort Awesome (who also shot the group's acclaimed "Our Truth" clip) can currently be viewed on "Headbanger's Ball", AOL, Music Choice and Yahoo! Music, or you can view it by clicking here.

The success of "Karmacode", which debuted at #28 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, can be partly contributed to the strength of its lead-off single, "Our Truth", and a stellar live performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in May. The track was added by over 75 Active Rock and Alternative Radio outlets (and played by well over 125 commercial outlets in all), becoming a Top 30 Active Rock single while spending over 2 1/2 months on the Top 40 Active Rock Radio Chart.

LACUNA COIL's second single, "Enjoy The Silence", has been added at over three dozen commercial radio outlets in only two official weeks at radio. Currently you can hear "Enjoy The Silence" nationally on XM Satellite Radio (Squizz), Sirius Satellite Radio (Octane), Music Choice (Rock), AOL Radio (New Rock First and Rock Covers) and more.

Andrea Ferro (vocals) checks in with the following Ozzfest report: "We recently played one of the biggest Ozzfest shows thus far in Tinley Park, and we had a lot of friends from the city visiting us so we pulled out our canopy and all the camping chairs. The crowd gave us a big welcome back and the show was really energetic! In the evening Cristina, Lucone (our drum tech) and I went to a club nearby to checkout a showcase with the guys from AVENGED SEVENFOLD. After few drinks the party moved to Dan's (guitar player from DISTURBED) beautiful house and the night quickly got out of control with a serious amount of shots and beers. We ended up on the A7X bus dancing till dawn. The off-date we had with ATREYU in Grand Rapids was simply amazing. It was such an intense show. The crowd was going crazy, the sound was really good and we were in really good shape. The vibe of a club after so many big arena shows is simply awesome.

"East Troy was a really nice place in the middle of a huge golf course. This is the place Stevie Ray Vaughn lost his life crashing with his helicopter after the show and that gave me a weird vibe. We finally made it into Toronto after the usual border trouble. We had a great first night and then headed to a rock bar where the guys from HATEBREED took over the DJ booth for a quick set that evolved into another wild night of shots and beers. The NYC show was absolutely amazing and the tour is quickly coming to an end but we will be back soon. Thanks for coming out and we hope to see you all soon."
