Italian goth metal act Lacuna Coil have announced their new album, Black Anima. It comes three years after their last studio effort, Delirium.
Co-vocalist Cristina Scabbia elaborated on the new record’s concept in a lyrical statement:
“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 disturbingly 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.”
Black Anima will arrive October 11 on the group’s longtime label, Century Media Records. Lacuna Coil are about to embark on a tour of North America and Europe, including a handful of festival dates. Perhaps fans will hear new songs live before the album drops.
