After a few days of teasing on their social media, Italian goth masters Lacuna Coil reveal the title and release date of their upcoming album. Save the date; “Black Anima” comes out October 11 via Century Media.
“Black Anima is all of us. It’s you and it’s me, it’s everything we hide and fiercely expose to a world that’s halfway asleep. It is the fogged mirror we are peering into searching for the truth. It’s sacrifice and pain, it’s justice and fear, it’s fury and revenge, it’s past and future…Human beings in the magnificence of a disturbing ambiguity. The black core that balances it all… as without darkness light would never exist. We proudly present to you our new work and can’t wait to welcome you in our embrace. We are the Anima,” explains Lacuna Coil vocalist Cristina Scabbia.
“Black Anima” is Lacuna Coil’s ninth studio album, following 2016’s critically acclaimed “Delirium”. Entering 2019 with a new album in mind, the band has taken a break from heavy touring to focus on new material. After months of writing and demoing, Lacuna Coil have finally entered Brx Studio in Milano in May, as confirmed by their vocalist Cristina Scabbia on her social media accounts: “We FINALLY entered the studio to start the recording of new music, today!” She went on with enthusiasm: “I feel so very happy and on fire (and so are the boys!), I am in LOVE with new stuff and from my black bubble of enjoyment I feel immensely grateful for your constant support: it is because of you all that we are able to do what we love the most on a professional level and I NEVER take all this for granted. I always remember where we came from and f*ck I hope I’ll do this forever and ever!! I can’t wait to let you hear something new!”
To celebrate the album release, Lacuna Coil will be joining folk metallers Eluveitie and Moldovan outfit Infected Rain for EU/UK tour in November and December.
