Italian metal giants Lacuna Coil recently announced the release of their new live album, ‘Live From The Apocalypse,’ to be released on June 25th. Today, the band have dropped the live version of “Apocalypse,” originally released on the latest studio album ‘Black Anima,’ which is available to purchase and stream on all digital platforms. Watch the video for “Apocalypse” from the ‘Live From The Apocalypse’ bonus DVD, HERE [embedded below].
“Looking at the sand gliding down through the hourglass… ‘Apocalypse’ is factual and actual in today’s pandemic, though, we couldn’t foresee this when we wrote it: the separation, the solitude, the confusion, the resilience. We keep on fighting for our will to survive,” states Cristina Scabbia about “Apocalypse.”
Andrea Ferro adds, “Apocalypse is usually a huge concept involving destruction or damage and the way the world ends. In our vision, there’s no big apocalypse just endless little ones. Ignorance, complacency, selfishness alone can bring apocalypse.”
‘Live From The Apocalypse’ is the fruit of an unprecedented time. Unlike previous live efforts the Italians, under the yoke of the pandemic, cleverly devised a way for their devoted fan base to hear and see them on stage by organizing a special live stream event performing their latest album, ‘Black Anima,’ in its entirety this past September 2020. This very special show will now be released digitally and physically (vinyl and CD). The physical album formats come with a bonus DVD featuring the footage of the original live stream.
