APOCALYPTICA have postponed their “The Cell-0 Tour” of North America for a third time due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in place. The original dates were set to begin in May 2020 before being moved back to early 2021 and then to late summer 2021. The tour has LACUNA COIL in the support role and will now take place in April and May of 2022 and has added stops in Dallas, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Albany.
APOCALYPTICA’s latest studio album, “Cell-0”, came out in January 2020 which also marked the band’s first fully instrumental record in 17 years.
Back in 2018, APOCALYPTICA’s Eicca Toppinen spoke about the band’s decision to make an all-instrumental album at this point in their career: “On the previous ones, we always combined the instrumental songs with the vocal songs, and it was great to have the featuring artists, it was great to work with Frank Perez for the ‘Shadowmaker’ album. But then, on the other hand, it became a bigger interest for us, like, okay, it would be interesting to make a full instrumental album, so there’s no compromise with anything.”
LACUNA COIL will release a new live album, “Live From The Apocalypse”, on June 25 via Century Media. The album was recorded at the band’s special September 2020 livestream event where LACUNA COIL performed their latest album, “Black Anima”, in its entirety.
