Lacuna Coil have announced a European tour in support of their new album Delirium.

The Italian metal outfit will kick off their 30-date winter trek at Vosselaar’s Biebob in Belgium on October 21 following their Australian tour earlier that month. The run also includes six UK dates in November.

Last month, singer Cristina Scabbia admitted the band were not taken seriously when they first started out in Italy.

She said: “At the beginning it wasn’t easy, because when you say you’re a musician, people immediately say, ‘Ok but what’s your job?’ ‘I’m a musician,’ ‘Yeah, but what’s your real job?’ ‘No, really, I’m touring the world, this is how I pay my bills.’

“People still don’t look at musicians as people who really work. At the beginning my parents were worried for me, like, ‘Where do you think you’re going?’ – especially coming from Italy. There aren’t a lot of rock or metal bands from Italy.”

Lacuna Coil are currently touring the US. See the new European dates in bold below.
