Italy’s LACUNA COIL have announced their first European headline tour in support of the band’s critically acclaimed new album “Broken Crown Halo”. LACUNA COIL will be joined on all dates by Motionless In White and Devilment.

Joining the band on all dates are American buzz band Motionless In White (who are debuting their new album “Reincarnate” in Europe), and Devilment – the new horror metal project from Cradle Of Filth frontman Dani Filth. 

Cristina Scabbia (vocals): “This is going to be HANDS DOWN the tour of the year and I am so damn excited it’s not even funny! A melting pot of darkness, adrenaline, sick rock metal and goth atmosphere is going to embrace you all soon… LACUNA COIL + Motionless In White + Devilment are going to paint your heart black in November. Come see us, you won’t regret it (and damn, I can’t fucking wait!).”
