Lacuna Coil Announce Title And Release Date For New Album, Tour

Posted by on January 13, 2014

Been missing the sight of Cristina Scabbia’s face everywhere? Fret not. Lacuna Coil will soon be back at it with album number seven, Broken Crown Halo, which the band has announced will be released on April 1 on Century Media Records.

On the subject of the new album:

“What conflict could run so deep that it takes you to the deepest corners of your inner world? Today we are surrounded by a lot of lies, aliases, and people acting like they are wearing an invisible crown – but you better have thick skin if you want to wear this crown! ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ is a cinematic album that could be the soundtrack of our days – it is a dark vision of a near future when survival is second nature, and failure is not something to be avoided, but rather cultivated with lessons learned along the way.

We set the bar pretty high with ‘Dark Adrenaline’ and it hasn’t been easy bringing our sound to the next level, but we have lived, learned and grown through a year full of personal issues and changes. We learned to be strong and get stronger, and we felt an inner vibe in this band that we haven’t felt before. We locked ourselves in an age-old studio in Milan, Italy, where history was strong and the past met with our future, vintage gear and the influence of classic Italian horror movies and bands like Goblin meeting the fresh and rough sounds of the modern world with unique and invigorating results. ‘BROKEN CROWN HALO’ is Lacuna Coil introducing a new order, and letting nothing stand in our way…”

In addition to the new album, the band will also be embarking on “The Hottest Chicks In Hard Rock” tour with Sick Puppies, Eyes Set To Kill, and Cilver presumably to further promote the fact that Cristina Scabbia is usually the only member of the band people can name off the top of their heads (no offense Andrea Farro).
