In some excellent news, Italy's gothic metal legends Lacuna Coil have announced that they'll be releasing their ninth studio album titled Black Anima on October 11!
The band's vocalist Cristina Scabbia released a statement on the meaning behind the record:
“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 serve as the follow-up to the band's last album Delirium, which was released back in 2016. Lacuna Coil also have an extensive tour booked throughout Europe at the end of the year, so fingers crossed they'll make their way over in 2020!
