Lacuna Coil’s Cristina Scabbia and Marco “Maki” Coti-Zelati have been interviewed by sock puppets in a recent video shared online.

The singer, along with bassist and main songwriter Zelati, answered questions about their laundry habits, their lineup change and their upcoming album Delirium, due out on May 27. The video can be viewed below.

Scabbia recently admitted Lacuna Coil 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.
