LACUNA COIL: New Video Interview With ANDREA FERRO
November 1, 2012
GetYourRockOut.com conducted an interview with singer Andrea Ferro of Italian heavy rockers LACUNA COIL prior to the band's October 26 performance at Academy 2 in Manchester, England. You can now watch the chat below.
On October 17, LACUNA COIL filmed a video for an as-yet-undisclosed song with Italian director Roberto Cinardi (a.k.a. Saku).
LACUNA COIL previously worked with Saku on the clips for the songs "Spellbound" and "I Won't Tell You", taken from the band's 2009 album "Shallow Life".
LACUNA COIL earlier in the year completed the "Dark Legacy" North American tour. The band's only headlining run in the United States in 2012 featured a set of more than two hours, with material spanning all of LACUNA COIL's albums.
LACUNA COIL's new album, "Dark Adrenaline", sold around 20,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 15 on The Billboard 200 chart.
In an interview with Oregon Music News, LACUNA COIL singer Cristina Scabbia stated about the band's musical progression over the years: "We've never really changed — an evolution isn't a change. We never stopped using heavy guitars, we never stopped playing heavier songs, I think we might write 'heavier' music now than we did in the past. I think for some reason people think that our early albums are 'more metal,' but if I think about a song like 'No Need To Explain', that was not a heavy song. If you take a close listen you could say it was almost a pop song. I think people's perception regarding our change has something to do with our look. If you look at 'Shallow Life', people didn't understand the way we were dressed — they were costumes. They were meant to make fun of the 'shallow life.' I was dressed up like a 'pop princess' and Andrea [Ferro] was dressed up like a 'hip-hop pimp.' People would come up to us and say, 'You guys changed your look?!' I said, 'What the fuck?! You think we're really going to be dressed up like that?! Didn't you see that we even enhanced my boobs on the photos just to make fun of this fake world?!' I bet you if we would have gone with the typical black look people wouldn't have said a thing. That's frustrating because you have to go with the most obvious choice, the more bland choice, so people will get it."
Ferro married his longtime girlfriend Paola Penny Gigliotti on September 8.
