“Comalies XX” was made available on October 14 via Century Media Records. LACUNA COIL celebrated the 20th anniversary of “Comalies”, by performing it in its entirety at a one-night-only concert on October 15 at Fabrique in Milano. “Comalies” was originally released on October 29, 2002 through Century Media Records. The LP, which featured the band’s breakthrough single “Heaven’s A Lie”, has reportedly gone on to sell over 300,000 copies in the United States alone. The “Comalies” song “Swamped” is available as a downloadable track for the music video game series “Rock Band” and also appeared in the 2004 video game “Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines”.
LACUNA COIL played its first show in front of an audience in more than two years on April 7 as the support act for APOCALYPTICA at the Masquerade in Atlanta, Georgia. Prior to the Atlanta concert, the last time LACUNA COIL played together was at the group’s special September 2020 live-stream event where the band-members performed their latest album, “Black Anima”, in its entirety with no audience in attendance at the Alcatraz Club in Milan, Italy. That show was released as a live album, “Live From The Apocalypse”, via Century Media.
