NEW LACUNA COIL

WHAT’S UP NATION!?,

I am excited to report that one of my favorite bands LACUNA COIL is dropping a new album this year.Italian Gothic Metal icons LACUNA COIL are excited to announce their new album Black Anima out on October 11th, 2019, worldwide via Century Media Records. “Black Anima is all of us. It’s you and it’s me. It’s everything we hide and fiercely expose to a world that’s halfway asleep. It is the fogged mirror we are peering into searching for the truth. It’s sacrifice and pain, its justice and fear, its fury and revenge, it’s past and future. Human beings in the magnificence of a disturbing ambiguity. The black core that balances it all… as without darkness light would never exist. We proudly present to you our new work and can’t wait to welcome you in our embrace. We are the Anima”, states Lacuna Coil frontwoman, Cristina Scabbia, about the forthcoming release.

Today, Lacuna Coil also announces their exclusive in-store Looney Tunes event on July 25th at 6:30PM in Long Island, NY. The event will include an exclusive meet and greet and signing with Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro, exclusive merch designs, and exclusive posters. Additionally, fans will be able to pre-order Black Animaand the re-issues of Comalies and In A Reverie in store.“We’re excited to come out and meet you all at the historical, one and only Looney Tunes record store,” states Scabbia. “Andrea and I are bringing with us a couple of new songs hot off the mixing desk – can’t wait to let you hear them! See you soon!” The pre-orders for the re-issues of Comalies and In A Reverie are also available, starting today, and will be released on August 30th.
LACUNA COIL will be performing The 119 Show presented by Revolver for two sold out nights (July 22nd and July 23rd) in New York City at Gramercy Theatre. The band previously performed, recorded and released the DVD for “The 119 Show – Live In London“, to celebrate the band’s 20th anniversary. Purchase the DVD HERE. In addition to The 119 Show, the band will be playing a few festival shows this summer and will be on an extended European tour with Swiss Folk Metal band Eluveitie and their friends in Infected Rain. Fans can purchase tickets to upcoming tour dates HERE.
I have been a big fan of these guys since their 2004 release Comalies. I have seen them twice and was lucky to meet them once before a majority of their line up left. But I have to give their new guys a lot of credit. Their last album (Delirium) was Fantastic. The first track (House of Shame) had me in the first 10 seconds. And the hits just kept coming one after the other and the other. Heck I couldn’t believe this was the same band who did Comalies. So I am confident in them to make music. They are about to go out on tour and here’s where they are going.

BronyPalooza 2019

Greetings Nation,

     We are just weeks away from The Final BronyCon and we have some news about this year’s BronyPalooza.

Music affects everyone in a variety of ways, and the agents of BronyCon are no different. They love to groove to the beat, sing along to their favorite tunes, and dance the night away. In keeping with the tradition of bringing in the best talent the fandom has to offer, BronyCon is happy announce more than 20 acts who will be part of the final BronyPalooza in only a few weeks!

 

For the first time, BronyPalooza will be spread out over three nights, with the first set of acts starting on Thursday following Opening Ceremonies. This year’s lineup features a wide variety of acts and musical styles; ranging from rock bands to electronic DJs.

 

These acts include talents from the earliest days of the “MLP:FiM” fandom to some of today’s top producing talents. Eurobeat Brony (aka Odyssey), known for some of the earliest and well-known pieces of pony music such as “Discord” and creator of the “Super Ponybeat” album series, will be returning to the event for a second straight year while electro artists Silva Hound & ScratchAttack will be rocking the crowd as well. In addition, Guests of Honor Michelle Creber and Gabriel Brown, better known as Black Gryph0n, will be taking the stage to perform together for one last BronyCon. For the second time, Vylet Pony will be joining the BronyPalooza lineup as she uses her set to transport concert goers into various worlds and stories, along with many others as well.

 

The concert also gives opportunities for new groups and performances to take shape. Five acts (Luck Rock, Crusader!, Cyril the Wolf, Poni1Kenobi, and The Wonderbolts) will be combining their talents on Saturday night to form the BronyPalooza Super Band – a once in a lifetime act with additional surprise guests that can only be experienced in Baltimore this year.

 

Finally, but certainly not least, BronyCon is excited to announce one final performer who will be returning to BronyPalooza and the convention scene as a whole. After many years away …no hints……………………………. REDACTED – Classified Information will be released during final mission on August 1 ………..stop reading this………………………………
