LACUNA COIL was joined by EPICA singer Simone Simons for a performance of the Italian band’s song “Heaven’s A Lie” this past Friday, September 29 at the PlayStation Theater in New York City. Later in the night, LACUNA COIL frontwoman Cristina Scabbia came up during EPICA‘s set to sing the latter group’s track “Storm The Sorrow”.
Fan-filmed video footage of both songs can be seen below.
LACUNA COIL‘s month-long September tour with EPICA marks the Italian band’s first U.S. tour dates in over a year, as they continue to support their latest album, 2016’s “Delirium”. Joining LACUNA COIL and EPICA on “The Ultimate Principle” tour are INSOMNIUM and ELANTRIS.
LACUNA COIL will celebrate the twentieth anniversary of its debut by playing a very special show, dubbed “Nothing Stands In Our Way”, on January 19, 2018 at London, England’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire. It will be a unique extravaganza and truly exceptional event that is not to be missed. Apart from a career-spanning set, you will be able to enjoy LACUNA COIL songs never played live before. The show will be filmed and recorded for a release later in 2018.
EPICA‘s new EP, “The Solace System”, was released on September 1 via Nuclear Blast. The effort contains six brand-new songs which were created during the sessions for the band’s latest album, 2016’s “The Holographic Principle”.
“The Solace System” was recorded, mixed and mastered by Joost van den Broek and Jacob Hansen.
