LACUNA COIL Loses Its Founding Guitarist
2016 is shaping up to be an interesting year for Lacuna Coil. Initially things were pretty good, what with the band's vocalist Cristina Scabbia stating the group's new album will be heavier and feature more growling. Then came the announcement that founding guitarist Marco Biazzi just quit the band, as the band stated on its Facebook. Nothing like a little bad news to offset the good, right?
It’s never easy to say goodbye to someone, especially after more than 17 wonderful years lived together. Sharing everything about life, on the road, on and off the stage. Growing up as a band and as a musician which played pretty much everywhere on this planet. Seeing positive results and feedbacks coming finally after so hard work together.
I will never forget all these emotions and I will always keep them with me.
I felt I couldn’t add more in this project any longer so I decided to leave my second family, Lacuna Coil, to take a different path for a new challenge in my life.
I’m now looking for another musical project to start and to get back on the road as soon as possible to kick ass again around the globe because this is what I want and what I love the most.
First I wanna thank Lacuna Coil for all these years together…I will be always grateful to this band.. it’s because of this adventure together, collecting this huge amount of experiences, that I became the professional musician which I am right now.
Thanks also to our fantastic crew around the world for an amazing and professional job in every kinds of conditions, our management, and our label Century Media. Thanks also to all my endorsements which are always supporting this italian guy from the neighbour no matter how and, in the end, A BIG THANKS to You all, Friends and Fans all over the world, who supported me since the beginning with your infinite dedication and love.
This is not a real goodbye from me.. it is just a change. See You guys at NAMM this year with my New Signature Guitar from Schecter "Maus M-7”… I’m sure we are going to share more notes and beer very soon.
The band responded to a few comments on that post, most importantly stating that Biazzi did not perform on the new record and that bassist Marco Zelati performed all the guitar parts.
Also, the band heavily alludes to the fact that Biazzi didn't contribute to writing music either.
Obviously no word on who will replace Biazzi yet.
