LACUNA COIL To Enter Studio In January/February

LACUNA COIL frontwoman Cristina Scabbia and guitarist Cristiano Migliore have spoken to about their burgeoning success in the wake of the group's appearance at this year's Ozzfest festival. The group's latest Century Media album, "Comalies" (2002), has sold 147,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, becoming the label's first release to break the 100,000 barrier.

"We're really proud to be considered a breakout band, but I'm really scared about those names, because it's kind of like a bad luck thing," Scabbia told "We try not to think about it. We're really easy-going people, so we don't want to act like rock stars, stuff like that. [We] just want to be satisfied with our music, we just want to enjoy what we do."

Migliore says the band's post-Ozzfest plans include a return to Milan and some time off before beginning a new album. "We'll start working on the new stuff and hopefully we'll start [recording] in January or February so the album can be out by May," he says.

Some bands might write while on the road, but LACUNA COIL isn't one of them. "We're more the kind of musicians that sit home by themselves and try to work on stuff separately, and then we get together and we try to see if the ideas match," Migliore explains. "On the road there's too much to do. You play, you have interviews, you have signing sessions, and by the time you're done with all this, you go to bed because you're stressed out, or you get really wasted and it's not the right time to write."
