LACUNA COIL Announce OZZFEST 'Off' Dates

June 22, 2006

LACUNA COIL will make their much-anticipated return to the U.S. on June 29 as part of this year's Ozzfest main stage lineup. The massive summer trek will also coincide with the release of the new single, "Enjoy the Silence" (DEPECHE MODE cover),which will impact commercial radio on July 11. The video for the track, completed by the directorial team Fort Awesome, who also shot the group's acclaimed "Our Truth" clip, will make its Fuse and MTV2 debut the same week the track hits radio.

Since its release, LACUNA COIL's new album, "Karmacode", has sold over 100,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and spent a total of eight weeks on the Billboard Top 200 chart. The album's success can be partly contributed to the strength of its lead-off single, "Our Truth", and live performance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!", which took place last month. The track was added by over 75 commercial rock and alternative radio outlets (and played by well over 125 commercial outlets),becoming a Top 30 Active Rock single while spending over 2 1/2 months on the Top 40 Active Rock Radio chart and reaching a monitored Arbitron audience of over 11 million listeners.

LACUNA COIL have also scheduled a number of high profile off-dates this summer with the likes of AVENGED SEVENFOLD and DISTURBED, among others.

Andrea Ferro (male vocals) checks in with the following report: "We are almost done with our round of European festivals, and it's really been a blast! Some shows, we played in front of some of the biggest crowds we've ever seen, and with so many of our favorite bands. The summer is finally kickin' in and things are looking great for us since we will be performing on the main stage of Ozzfest this year. I clearly remember what happened in 2004 when this new band from Italy first had the pleasure of taking part in this mythical event. We couldn't believe we were really going to spend the summer playing in the U.S. in front of so many people each day while being able to hang out with all those icons. It really was a dream come true! To be back this year on the main stage is once again something very unexpected and a true honor for us. We hope to see ya all there ready to jump and sing along with the new songs."

LACUNA COIL and Music Choice, the leading multi-platform music network, have joined forces to bring you exclusive material that no hard rock/metal fan will want to miss. An amazing live version of their hit single "Our Truth" is currently available throughout the month of June on Music Choice On-Demand, the most-popular free video-on-demand music service available in millions of digital cable homes nationwide.
