I just got back from DORO South American tour. It has been an incredible experience which will be impressed in my thoughts for long time.

We visited beautiful places, met new friends, every show was an intense exchange of emotions between the band and the audience... unforgettable!

Although it is not easy to restart after a rewarding tour like that, life goes on and new targets must be achieved.

The new Samsas Traum album, German gothic band for which I recorded all the guitar parts, is in mastering process. Soon I will also be able to communicate the release date.

Clairvoyants wil hit the studio at the end of May for recording the new album! We are really satisfied about the work done so far. The new record will be more mature and personal of his predecessor and it will sound as heavy than ever!!!

Gigs have been updated, too. Therefore go check them out and come visit me!




March 10, 2011

Hola folks!

2011 started pretty well: Alexander Kaschte, leader of German band Samsas Traum, asked me again to be part of their new album. I’m pleased to announce that I’ll record all the guitars for this new release. I’m really looking forward to it because the last album we did together, 13 Jahre Lang Dagegen (2009), was really successful and I’m pretty sure the new one will be as good as the older!

Clairvoyants will hit the studio soon as well: drums of our second album will be recorded in May, so stay tuned about the recording sessions.

And...don't forget to check out the “Live Dates” section for the next gigs!

Stay safe



Jan. 3rd, 2011 | Happy New Year!

2010 has been a busy year: almost 100 concerts around the world, I’ve recorded my solo album which will be released within the next few months, I’ve composed new material for Clairvoyants that will be recorded before the next summer, I guess, and I’ve taught and learned new things with my students!

2011 starts with the new Clairvoyants’ gigs!

I can already tell you that in April I'll be on tour again with DORO in North Europe and South America! You’ll find further details in the “Live Dates” section.

I wish you a successful 2011!



Nov. 05, 2010

Ciao everybody!

The Live Dates section has been updated with all the shows I’ll play untill the end of 2010.

In November I’ll focus on the gigs I have with Clairvoyants, then in December I’ll take off for the DORO Winter Tour that will take me far from home for the whole month. For the first leg of the tour we’ll be supporting Motorhead! Another dream come true! The rest of the shows will see DORO as a Headliner and the setlist will be enriched with some pieces taken from the almost thirty years old repertory of the band.

I’m glad to annaunce I’ve finished mixing my solo album! I wanted to keep the sound as natural as possible and I have to say that I’m very pleased with the final result, thanks also to Rocco Lombardi on drums, Gian Andrea Costa on bass and our producer Stefano Scenini! Next step: Mastering!

Within the next days I’ll start recording the guitar parts for the Rock Opera written by Gabriele Bernasconi! I’m looking forward to facing this new challenge!

In the Clairvoyants headquarter the last songs are being arranged, that will complete our second album… can’t wait to hear them recorded!

See you on the road!



Sept. 2nd, 2010

It's been a great summer so far! I played in one of the most important european festivals like Bang Your Head in Germany, Bloodstock in UK and Metal Camp in Slovenia...rewarding experiences!
It's not finished yet: Saturday 11 September Clairvoyants will be headlining the Rock Night Festival in Neunburg, Germany! Still speaking about abroad gigs, with DORO, on the second week of October, we will visit Japan for the first time! Three important shows: Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka! And in December we'll be on tour supporting Motorhead!

About production, I've finished recording the debut album of my instrumental trio and  within the next weeks we'll be busy mixing it and then mastering it.
With Clairvoyants instead, we made huge steps forward on the composing process and in the first months of  2011 we will enter the recording studio to realize our second album!

For whom is interested on following my lessons I announce that the subscritions of my guitar class at Controtempo Music Center Lugano are open. For Further information please write me here: info@lucaprinciotta.com.

Stay Tuned!;-)
