As previously reported, "Our Truth" also entered the Italian national chart at position No. 23 and the Spanish chart at No. 19. In addition, the "Our Truth" video is currently in "SuperHot" rotation on MTV Italy, where it has eclipsed the likes of BLACK EYED PEAS, FALL OUT BOY and OASIS in terms of airplay, according to EmptySpiral.net.

LACUNA COIL's new album, "Karmacode", is scheduled for release on April 4 via Century Media Records.

"I would say 'Karmacode' is the missing link between Europe and America because we're still keeping our roots, we're still keeping the structure, the melody, the passion, the real strings that are not common in the U.S.," vocalist Cristina Scabbia told Billboard. "But at the same time, we wanted to incorporate something strong, something more powerful."

LACUNA COIL's 2002 album "Comalies" has sold 234,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Marco Barbieri, Century Media president for North America, says the record has sold 500,000 units worldwide.

LACUNA COIL's popularity on the metal front is already sealed: They will be on the cover of at least a half-dozen metal magazines this spring. But the group also is gaining mainstream exposure: An April appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and a segment of "The Mix" on ABC News are slated, according to Billboard.
