Delirium, the new album from Italian gothic metal outfit Lacuna Coil is set to be released on May 27th via Century Media Records, in the meantime, the band is on a North American tour promoting the record. They recently played at the Marquee Theater in Tempe, AZ.
Lacuna Coil returned to the valley after almost a year since they were here for the Broken Crown Halo tour. This time around even though the tour is intended to promote the upcoming album Delirium, only two songs from the album were included in the current setlist, with the idea of adding a third one later on the tour.
For the show at Marquee theater, they were supported by Butcher Babies and Painted Wives. Unfortunately, we missed out the Painted Wives set, but Butcher Babies show up the Arizona crowd that they are more than pretty faces in a tight corset, they played brutal music the way it meant to be played, as their show was received by a crowd that sang, jumped and moshed as the Los Angeles band delivered a solid performance that warmed the crowd before the Italian headliners.
Lacuna Coil debuted not only two songs from their new album, but they also introduced to the audience their new drummer Ryan Blake Folden and their new guitar player Diego Cavallotti. And if that wasn’t enough they also debuted their new stage outfits which are highly connected to the conceptual theme of Delirium.
Their show was filled with classic and present songs as they delivered renditions of Heaven’s a Lie, Swamped, Our Truth, and To The Edge. Along those classics we got the chance to hear energetic songs like Upsidedown, Trip The Darkness, and Fire from Dark Adrenaline (2012) and Nothing Stands In Our Way, Zombies, Die & Rise, Victims, and Cybersleep from their latest album Broken Crown Halo (2014). Lacuna Coil is a band that always delivers energetic shows, and they are well-known for spreading that energy to the public at their shows.
The Age of Metal had the chance to speak with vocalist Andrea Ferro about the new album Delirium, the tour, food while on the road and their memories of 70000 Tons of Metal at the beginning of the year.
