Der Titel des Songs ist eine Anspielung auf die schlechten Zeiten, in der die Welt sich befindet, sowie eine Anspielung auf die Phase, in der sich die Band selbst gerade befindet.

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”, sagt die Band.

Ash Costello von New Years Day fügt hinzu: “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.”

Der Song und das Video werden kurz vor der US-Tour von Lacuna Coil veröffentlicht, bei der die Band als Special Guest von New Years Day und mit Unterstützung von Oceans Of Slumber auftritt. Die Band wird außerdem auf den großen Festivalbühnen von Rockville, Sonic Temple und Milwaukee Metal Festival spielen. Alle Termine weiter unten.
