Italian hard-rockers Lacuna Coil have just premiered the video for “Spellbound” on ArtistDirect.com today. The clip was directed by Saku and filmed at the Dolce & Gabbana Gold restaurant in Milan, Italy. Cristina Scabbia (vocals) comments: “We had a great time shooting the video for ‘Spellbound’ and it also marks our first time working with acclaimed Italian director Saku in a location that’s really peculiar. It was filmed in a very fashionable place: the restaurant ‘Gold’ located in Milan, Italy, which owned by the fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana, who kindly gave us the permission to film over there!”
The location provides the perfect atmosphere to express the ‘Shallow Life’ theme. Everything is really shiny and ‘bling bling’ while the band performs in the middle of a golden room full of mirrors and giant chandeliers.
“Spellbound” comes off Lacuna Coil’s new album, “Shallow Life”, which hits stores on April 21st. The album was recorded with acclaimed producer Don Gilmore (Avril Lavigne, Linkin Park, Pearl Jam) at the famed NRG Studios in Los Angeles. Check out the video for “Spellbound” here.
