Sounds | Lacuna Coil - In the Mean Time (feat. Ash Costello)

Een klein jaartje na de release van de vorige single Never Dawn trakteren de Italianen van Lacuna Coil ons op een nieuwe single, In the Mean Time, die gepaard gaat met een videoclip die de allures van een kortfilm heeft.

Ook hier trekt Lacuna Coil volop de kaart van de nu-metal(core) en zijn de symfonische elementen, alhoewel toch nog kenmerkbaar aanwezig, tot een minimum herleidt.

Trouwens, Cristina Scabbia en haar kornuiten mogen ook altijd eens zo'n exclusief optreden komen geven in mijn stamcafé.


The song’s title is a reference to the mean times the world is living in, as well as a reference to the state the band itself is in, between cycles..

“’In The Mean Time’ is a reflection on how much our society has generally ‘lost the plot’. 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”, the band says.

Ash Costello from NEW YEARS DAY further adds: “I am deeply honored to join LACUNA COIL on tour for the first time, to have the incredible opportunity to lend my guest vocals to a new track and appear in the music video. Working alongside the powerhouse vocalist Cristina has been a privilege, and I may be biased in saying that ‘In The Mean Time’ has quickly become my favorite by LACUNA COIL. Its message about embracing individuality and not conforming deeply resonates with me.”
