Lacuna Coil Parts Ways with Guitarist Diego Cavallotti


Departure Announcement

Italian gothic metal band Lacuna Coil has announced the departure of their guitarist, Diego Cavallotti. Cavallotti joined the band in 2016, initially as a temporary replacement for Marco “Maus” Biazzi, and later became a permanent member. On June 17, the band shared the news via social media, expressing gratitude for Cavallotti’s contributions and wishing him well in his future endeavors. They assured fans that all upcoming live performances will proceed as planned and that new music is in the works.

Band’s Ongoing Projects

Lacuna Coil recently completed their “Ignite The Fire” U.S. tour and is currently focused on writing and recording their next album. Lead vocalist Cristina Scabbia revealed that the band has made significant progress and aims to release the new material by the end of the year. The band is enthusiastic about the new songs and looks forward to sharing them with fans.

Recent Releases and Collaborations

In April, Lacuna Coil released a single titled “In The Mean Time,” featuring Ash Costello of New Years Day. This track reflects the challenging times the world is facing and the band’s own transitional phase. Last July, they also released a lyric video for “Never Dawn,” in collaboration with board game publisher CMON for the game “Zombicide.” These releases hint at the band’s evolving sound and ongoing creative collaborations.

Legacy and Future

Over the years, Lacuna Coil has built a strong legacy in the gothic metal scene. Their recent projects, including the “Comalies XX” anniversary celebration, demonstrate their commitment to both honoring their past and pushing forward with new music. As they transition into their next phase without Cavallotti, fans eagerly anticipate how the band will continue to innovate and perform.
