Italy’s greatest musical export, LACUNA COIL, have returned with the massively anticipated, new full-length release, Shallow Life, which is set for an April 21st North American release. The album was recorded with acclaimed producer Don Gilmore (Avril Lavigne, Linkin Park, Pearl Jam) at the famed NRG Studios in Los Angeles.
The group recently completed a stunning new video for the Active Rock smash hit “Spellbound” that was shot in their hometown of Milan, Italy at Dolce & Gabbana.
The clip was directed by Saku, produced by Apnea Film and wardrobe was provided by Dolce & Gabbana.

Cristina Scabbia (vocals) comments: “Hello to all the rockers out there. We’re currently in Denver on the ‘Music as a Weapon IV’ tour and we’re having a great time. It’s just amazing for us to be able to test some of the new songs in front of so many new people and to see such great reactions.
“We had a great time shooting the video for ‘Spellbound’ and it also marks our first time working with acclaimed Italian director Saku in a location that’s really peculiar.
It was filmed in a very fashionable place: the restaurant ‘Gold’ located in Milan, Italy, which is owned by the fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana, who kindly gave us the permission to film over there!
The location provides the perfect atmosphere to express the ‘Shallow Life’ theme. Everything is really shiny and ‘bling bling’ and the band is performing in the middle of a golden room full of mirrors and giant chandeliers.
“The story is rounded out by some actors that are interpreting different aspects of being under a spell of something: the girl obsessed by her weight and look, the guy who wants to be a superman, the politician etc. We can’t wait for you guys to see it and give us your impressions on the new album. See you all soon.”
