Lacuna Coil announce new record ‘Black Anima’ + LI in-store event

Lacuna Coil by Alessandro Olgiati

Italian gothic metal favorites Lacuna Coil have announced their new album, Black Anima, set for release on October 11th through Century Media Records. The impending LP follows 2016’s Delirium.

Here’s a full statement via singer Cristina Scabbia:

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, its justice and fear, its 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.

In addition, Lacuna Coil have confirmed an exclusive in-store event in Long Island, NY at Looney Tunes for July 25 at 6:30pm. A press release reads:

The event will include an exclusive meet and greet and signing with Cristina Scabbia and Andrea Ferro, exclusive merch designs, and exclusive posters. Additionally, fans will be able to pre-order Black Anima and the re-issues of Comalies and In A Reverie in store.

Scabbia adds:

We’re excited to come out and meet you all at the historical, one and only Looney Tunes record store. Andrea and I are bringing with us a couple of new songs hot off the mixing desk – can’t wait to let you hear them! See you soon!

More info regarding the LI appearance will be announced. Save the date and stay tuned for more news.

As noted, Lacuna Coil will also perform a pair of special ‘The 119 Show’ shows at NYC’s Gramercy Theatre on July 22 and 23. Tickets for both shows are completely sold out, though, re-sale tickets can be purchased.

Lacuna Coil have a ton of shows coming up this year, with a bunch of gigs in the UK and Europe, plus American appearances at ‘Rock USA’ and ‘Rock Fest.’ Check out all upcoming dates below.
