Lacuna Coil Announce 2014 Release for New Album ‘Broken Crown Halo’
Great news for Lacuna Coil fans! The Italian goth / alternative metal titans have revealed plans to release ‘Broken Crown Halo,’ their seventh full-length album. ‘Broken Crown Halo’ will see an April 1 release in North America.
Lacuna Coil have been going through some personal issues as of late, pulling out of the 2014 ShipRocked cruise to tend to “very serious personal family matters.” In addition, vocalist Cristina Scabbia would later post that “2013 hasn’t exactly been a piece of cake for me,” citing moments when she though she was “really going to give up… not artistically but as a person.”
However, 2014 has all the elements to be a banner year for Lacuna Coil. Not only will the band release ‘Broken Crown Halo,’ they’ll also embark on Revolver’s 2014 Hottest Chicks in Hard Rock Tour with Sick Puppies, Eyes Set to Kill and Cilver.
Lacuna Coil released the following statement about the band’s future:
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…
