PiercingMetal Thoughts: And so it begins. I think fans of the tours best get ready for more news along these lines as this brand-new and apparently deadly virus starts making the rounds. So far many regions are unscathed but considering how much travel goes on and how few people pay attention to warning signs its better to be careful. Pay attention to your surroundings and do by all means wash your hands after everything. For the duration I will be adopting a positive thumbs-up method of hello as opposed to shaking anyone’s hand. Considering I am not neurotic like some of my friends this should cite how serious I am taking the growing concerns about this virus. Be careful out there my friends and to our musical friends in Lacuna Coil, we wish them the safest possible outcome during this scary time. That’s all I have for now, see you next time.
