LACUNA COIL: More Video Footage Of BANANA 101.5 Appearance

Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL took part in an interview and acoustic performance in the studios of the Flint, Michigan radio station Banana 101.5 on April 16. Video footage of their appearance can be seen below.

LACUNA COIL's latest studio album, "Broken Crown Halo", sold around 13,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 27 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on April 1 via Century Media.

"Broken Crown Halo" was recorded Italy by producer Jay Baumgardner (P.O.D., SEVENDUST, EVANESCENCE, PAPA ROACH) and engineer Kyle Hoffmann (P.O.D., BUSH, ZEBRAHEAD). The effort was mastered by Howie Weinberg, whose credits include RAMMSTEIN, SOUNDGARDEN, NIRVANA, DEFTONES and SHERYL CROW.

LACUNA COIL in February hit the road as a quintet as part of "The Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock Tour" following the departures of guitarist Cris "Pizza" Migliore and drummer Cristiano "Criz" Mozzati. Marco "Maus" Biazzi handled all guitar duties on the trek while drummer Ryan Blake Folden once again sat behind the kit.

In a recent interview with Ghost Cult magazine, LACUNA COIL vocalist Cristina Scabbia stated about the most recent lineup changes: "We have known this was happening since December [2013], really. We sat down to discuss the tour schedule this year and they let us know it was time for them to do something different. It was readily apparent that they were not into the touring lifestyle and that's fine. There was no fight or anything like that. We are continuing on our path and they are on theirs. It did not affect the [making of the new LACUNA COIL] album ['Broken Crown Halo'] and there was still a very friendly atmosphere when we were recording the album together. Marco [Coti Zelati], our bass player, is our main songwriter anyway, so nothing much will change writing-wise."
