Iconic, Italian Gothfathers LACUNA COIL will return to Australia this October for their first ever Headline tour in support of their 8th studio album, Delirium.

Lacuna Coil are best known for the dual male/female vocals of Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro; a combination that forms the most effervescent one-two vocal punch in rock.

Their gothic imagery, down-tuned sonics and creative use of synths created a metal sub genre all of it's own. Influencing generations of bands who have live in the bands shadow since they formed in 1994.

Touring Australia in support of their eighth studio album, Delirium, which was released in May via Century Media/Sony Music Australia, Lacuna Coil have delivered the heaviest, darkest & most entrancing music of their career.

Supports for all shows have been locked in and they are:

PERTH

Ambient black metal proponents, Deadspace will bring their smorgasbord of misery drenched vocals, treacherously uplifting melodies and driving percussive integrity. Plus more mood swings than a goth teenager! Their just release EP Gravity has quickly gained international praise for it's adventurous song writing.

Cerebral metallers Nucleust signature blend of unpredictable riffs combinations, pounding poly-rhythms and sophisticated lyrical motives continue to push them into new territory. Inspired by everything from Classical Music to Doom & Goth, Thrash & Death, Jazz and Progressive Rock/Metal, Nucleust create music, that reflects what they perceive is happening in the real world.

MELBOURNE

Orpheus Omega have cemented themselves as one of Melodic Death Metal's most promising newcomers. 

Continuous national support slots multiple tours of Asia have refined their live set to devastating effect

Featuring aggressive and melodic guitar work, intricate and powerful drumming, chaotic keyboard work and a varied array of vocal stylings, their latest release, 2015's Partum Vita Mortem has become a staple in modern Melodic Death Metal.

Lead by their intense and impassioned front-woman Alex Reade, Drown This City have been at the forefront of the Australian heavy music scene all year. Combining their EDM roots with post hardcore aggression, DTC truly appeal to crowds of all kinds.

Beauty and brutality, electronica and riffs for days, you'll be dancing or head banging...or both!!

SYDNEY

Orpheus Omega are no strangers to the Sydney crowd and pairing them with Sydney progressive metal wizards

Gods Of Eden is a stroke of genius. GOE push the limits of creativity and technical ability. Utilising acoustic guitars, orchestras, and electronic soundscapes to give enormous depth to their sound. Ranging from intense and overbearing, to sweet and intoxicating they create epic arrangements full of nuance, layers and richness. Watching them live is otherworldly.

BRISBANE

Orpheus Omega will play main support to Lacuna Coil for the third and final time to a familiar Brisbane crowd.

Flynn Effect have scored the opening honours. The female fronted alt-rockers add in electronica influences and symphonic soundscapes to give a distinct European flavour that perfectly compliments their theatrical live show

This is Lacuna Coil's first visit to Australia since their appearance on the 2009 Soundwave Festival

Seven years is a very long time to wait, but it will be worth every single delirious second!
