This tour will present the history of Lacuna Coil, melding old fans with a new generation of Coilers. The Dark Legacy set will offer both the electric and acoustic vibe and absolute melodic epicness!" Frontman Andrea Ferro added, "We wanted to give our fans a special present for Lacuna Coil's fifteenth anniversary and that was the inspiration for the Dark Legacy tour. The Dark Legacy show will be very special, with a lot of our history in a surprise-filled set. You won't want to miss it!"

The latest offering recently debuted at #15 on the Billboard Top 200 Album chart, selling nearly 20,000 units in its first week, marking the band's highest album chart debut ever. The album has received rave reviews from the press and fans alike, with Outburn avowing, "The only band that counts is Lacuna Coil, and new album DARK ADRENALINE is the case in point...", The New Yorker.com stating, "DARK ADRENALINE is packed with ear-whacking passages that belie solid pop hooks..." and Spin.com declaring, "...try not to get sucked into Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro's hurricane-force melodies..." The video for the latest single "Trip The Darkness" can be viewed here.
