Filmed in their home town of Milan Italy at the famed Alcatraz Club, Italian metal giants Lacuna Coil have announced the release of a new live album, entitled “Live From The Apocalypse”, to be released on 25th June via Century Media. The show was one originally a live streamed event that saw them perform current album “Black Anima” in its entirety in September 2020 and is now being resurrected for your listening and viewing pleasure. The label have shared “Apocalypse” cut from the sixteen tracks performed on the night so expect one or two more before it finally sees the cold light of day.
“Looking at the sand gliding down through the hourglass… ‘Apocalypse’ is factual and actual in today’s pandemic, though we couldn’t foresee this when we wrote it: the separation, the solitude, the confusion, the resilience. We keep on fighting for our will to survive.“ ~ Cristina Scabbia
“Apocalypse is usually a huge concept involving destruction or damage and the way the world ends. In our vision, there’s no big apocalypse just endless little ones. Ignorance, complacency, selfishness alone can bring apocalypse” ~ Andrea Ferro
“On one hand, it felt awkward to play for a huge empty room,” tells vocalist Andrea Ferro. “ But, on the other hand, it felt great to finally reconnect with our fans at home and with the people working behind the scenes. A lot of people enjoyed the show—it was definitely a one-off event loaded with a lot of emotions and feelings. Live from the Apocalypse is an opportunity to offer a new release to our fans while the COVID-19 crisis is still a real thing, affecting them and us. The live album represents a unique moment in our career (and life) that will be forever remembered as that one time when we literally ‘rose from the Apocalypse.’”
