Hear LACUNA COIL team with NEW YEARS DAY singer on heavy new song

Ash Costello joins Italian metallers on "In the Mean Time"

Early next month, Italian alt-metallers Lacuna Coil will embark on a U.S. headlining tour with support from New Years Day — and now fans have another special treat to look forward to on that run. 

Today (April 19th), Lacuna Coil have dropped a crushing new song called "In the Mean Time" that features soaring vocals from New Years Day singer Ash Costello. 

The track is Lacuna Coil's first since their 2023 one-off "Never Dawn," and it's ostensibly the first taste of the band's upcoming new album, which frontwoman Cristina Scabbia teased to Revolver late last year.

"'In The Mean Time' is a reflection on how much our society has generally 'lost the plot,'" Lacuna said in a press statement. "We are living in really mean times filled with unhappy people: lonely, anxious, depressed, destructive. The pressure that crushes from the outside doesn't allow to see things with the right clarity.

"This song is like group therapy: not a lamentation, but acceptance that once broken, it's hard to put oneself back together again. We need to take our minds off all the inescapable toxicity and find that there's so much more to this life…and know that in the meantime, everything cannot be aligned.

"We invited Ash Costello from New Years Day to feature on the track and we're thrilled she came on board adding exactly what we needed for this song with her warm voice and charisma."
